    the block pattern is a Carol Doak pattern from her book "300 paper peicing blocks"...have you paper pieced before?...if not it is the most fun at least it is for me right now because I can get those perfect points that I could never get before....

    I'll play! These fun fabrics came in the mail today, from Amma. :D We had a pool going for the mare stare and Sue and I won. Aren't these the coolest fabrics? I may have to frame them instead of chop them!

    Love those 1930's repro's! And that piecing is stunning!

    I have petted these all day!

    if I ordered online my poor mailman would be attacked as soon as I knew the package was arriving...that would be so exciting to be waiting on fabric...my quilt shop is about two miles away plus we have alot of fabric stores here in town so I have'nt ever ordered but I am seeing some fabrics that are different then I've seen around and the prices seem good so one of these days I am going to order online....Chele those are such pretty colors you'll have fun with those....

    Ohhh can I play too, those are all gorgeous and I luv looking at fabrics. I've just been having a bit of a blowout at the fabric stores in the city. It is mid-winter here and they are having their big clearance sales. I wait all year for these sales, I usually get the bigger pieces of fabric I need to finish my quilts, that I can't afford at normal prices, so I've been having a bit of fun lately Whoo hoo :P

    Pic A:I finally got the rest of the fabric I need to finish Grandson's quilt. Made from last years BOMs. The green camoflage is Flannel, which will be lovely and soft on the back. All these, except the purple, were on special at $5 P/M, when you think most of these fabrics normally retail here between $18 -$25, that's jolly good buying :P

    Pic B: Clearance fabris, mostly 1 metre pieces

    Pic C: I don't normally buy fabric collections but these caught my eye, they were on special at $10 with an additional 20% discount, but they forgot to give me the discount, so instead of doing the paper work to fix it they offered me a metre of fabric, my choice. So I was happy :P I scored a metre of $20 fabric, which was worth way more than my discount would have been, that's the fabric at the bottom of the pic

    those are all very pretty I like the one you have for your Grandsons quilt very nice....I'm waiting very impatiently to find out what my daughter is having so I can start the baby quilt for him/her...and the best part is the baby will be born in winter so a nice cozy cuddly quilt will be just the ticket....for now I am just practicing my paper piecing....

    Pic D I got this fabric for $2 P/M, it has a small repeated flaw in the pattern but it is excellent quality fabric, looks like they had a bit of a spill with some of the dye, but at that price I can live with it :P , got 5 Metres, so I can either use it as backing or cut around the flaw for piecing

    Pic D This fabric I've ended up with 7 1/2 metres of, which will be enough to back the big quilt I'm making from the current BOMs. It is normally $25 P/M, I got 5mts for $3 P/M on the clearance table, when I went back for the half price sale they had the clearance table half price too, so I got the rest for $1.5 P/m :shock: It's excellent quality and nothing wrong with it, maybe people just didn,t like the colour :?: Go figure

    Pic F: Clearance fabrics, the solid fabrics in the top row are quilters homespun $3 P/M and the rest was all $5 P/M, mostly one metre pieces to add to my stash :wink:
