    I went to M & L fabrics last weekend, as well as a quilt shop near my parents house.

    These fabrics I got at the quilt shop, all were half off except the purple leaf one

    Do I have to have a plan? I like to buy and then see what inspiration hits me. Most likely they won't even be in a project together. I love to collect fabrics, I would have to say I am SABLE.

    I am just learning how to use the embroidery unit on my machine. All I have done so far is quilt labels, but I want to learn how to do more. I have downloaded a boatload of free designs and spent just a little time with the software on the computer to try and figure it out. I need to have some more time to work on it. You have made some gorgeous items with your embroidery, I hope I can be half as good as you by next Christmas!!!

    The blue fabric in the lower left corner is from Robert Kaufman "Stargazers" Print #7561. I need to find more of it, I only got a fat quarter of each of the two blues. It has gold etching shimmering in it!!!

    That is so sweet -- Thank you!! I love to do the machine embroidery. And if I can figure it out, you'll have no problems!! Wish I could make quilts half as beautiful as the ones you see here... :roll:
