    This is the last of summer purchases... and they were from ebay. I paid a good price for them, and they were worth it. I've never felt such high quality fabric. And the colors... well..see for yourself... :D

    Won't this make a grand Irish Chain or "Sunny Day?" :D

    And for the next floral log cabin....

    I'm not sure what pattern is best for this one... it's too big to cut into 1.5" strips...don't worry, I'll think of something. :wink:

    And even though my 19 and 22 year old aren't married, and won't be for at least two years, this one MUST be made into something for a grand child. :lol:

    This was the only disappointment... it was advertised as black and white, but yet again, it's black and cream. But, I have so many black and creams now--I'll make something with them all. :roll: I love the design.

    It was a very happy package. :D

    I DO like them all, but especially the 2nd one! I actually made an apron out of the 2nd one a coupla years ago -- I had an orange/yellow plaid that was the 2nd color (for pockets and lining). It's was gorgeous! Too bad I gave it away!

    Beautiful Fabrics!!! I am especially fond of Floral fabrics!! I like to use some in almost every quilt I make!
    Your bears are the cutest and I agree, they will be fantastic in a grandbaby quilt!!

    All beautiful fabrics. It's such a good feeling to find fabrics you just really feel a connection with. :)

    I really like the first floral one. It looks like something by South Sea Imports or Wilmington... who is it made by?
