    I went to JoAnns today and was thrilled to get fat quarter blender bundles for 3.49 a piece (plus my 15% teacher discount.) I am thinking I might have to make a really colorful quilt with black as the background. Hmmm. Anyway, I might have to go back on Monday to get more. It seems harder and harder to get blenders at a chain store and even at the LQS to get ones that go so well together unless it is a big shop. Then, you have to pull from several areas.

    Love those colors, wish our closest Joannes wasn't 2 hours away.

    If I did this right this link should take you to the 2009 BOM called "A Touch of Amish" which I was downloading all last year, & would love to have the kind of fabrics you got to do.

    I'm thinking of going to a dyeing class at the Quilting in the Pines camp next week in Flagstaff just because not only would I get to play w/dyeing fabrics, but would end up w/my own for this quilt. Don't know that I will, but the thought is nice... Now if Joanne's was around the corner, this sale would make a much cheaper option...

    I guess what you need to do is click on the "for members" in the toolbar (after "about us" & "Cabin news"), scroll down to "Block of the month", then select "2009" to see the blocks.

    The pattern is in the book Turning Twenty Simply Sashed. It looks like it will be quick and easy.

    Just a thought, go on line & order them----Before they opened the Joann's in OB, MS I ordered all the time with great luck---Lots of time they offer free shipping but you would need to get on the mailing list---

    Boy, that sure is a nice bunch of fabric! I have the flyer, and since I need some more Warn and Natural...hmmmmm and I have the 15% teacher discount as well. Guess where I am headed!

    I really like the solids.
    I think they would make a beautiful Kaleidoscope quilt.
    Too bad there is no Jo-Ann's near me.

    Went to Joann's this afternoon! Spent $45 and saved $126 with the sale discounts and the coupons in the circular!
    Don't forget the extra 10% on ALL purchases!!!
