    Hi, my material arrived today from Colonialcrafts.com, so good service from them as I ordered only 7 days ago.

    These are FAT EIGHTS, 20 of them and I thought you might like to see them in case you want to buy some. Cost 25$ PLUS POSTAGE. Its called the Dear Jane Bundle on their site. I think they have 4 or 5 to choose from this is the pink and brown choice.

    What you think. Me I am happy :D :D :D. PS before any of you ask its for a project in the future.

    Some really pretty ones here too

    At the moment no Melissa, I am going to have to get some fabrics for my next quilt (oh there is no stopping me) but think it will be costly so hanging fire till I get my pattern for it to see what is needed and I will need some advice on Muslin because I think that is the basis of the next one.

    I love to see what everyone finds. So good to know about the service for Colonialcrafts.com. We'll watch for more pics as you work on the quilt.

    Glad you like, even if you donīt buy as you say you can spend some drool time, the material is a good quality.

    Bebe, afraid I am not starting a Dear Jane in the near future as I have found another that just caught my eye, oh my here I go again. I am going to have to make a record of everything I want to make, what I may do is make a couple of Civil War Blocks with that fabric.
    The one I am going to make next is the Peony Quilt on the Hoopla.com site, I just fell in love with it. Check it out Bebe I think its gorgeous.

    I thought you all would be interested to see the fabrics though and to know the service is good when I can get it here in Spain in good time-

    Very nice, I like that one. I wonder are all the bundles (if I got the one you got) if they are the same or different.

    I donīt know about that, but as you are in America I suppose it would be easier for you to phone and ask.

    They are very nice, I really like them.

    I got my book to day Civil War Love Letters, really is fascinating to read. Theywere so respectful in these day of their womenfolk. A lovely read.

    Elle-I love your fabrics and I am tickled to death that you are thinking of making a Dear Jane quilt. I am going to make a URR quilt first and then do some more thinking about a DJ--but I do not think it will happen in my lifetime!! :shock: Keep us posted on your progress!!

    Thanks Marcia, however, I decided that I wouldnīt live long enough to finish a Dear Jane. LOL At my age you have to be careful you know too much stress and all that. Have decided however to do a Civil War Quilt and if you all want a peak at the pattern that I am impatiently waiting for here is the link. Made in 1863 and I think it is just beautiful.

    By the way received the Book, Civil War Love Letter Quilt. What a lovely read and great patterns too.

    No Loretta I donīt but it would be very interesting to find out. Hopefully my pattern will have arrived by tomorrow, there may be info in it so I can share with you. O am eagerly waiting for it. Feel like a kid in a candy store. LOL

    I went to ColonialCrafts.com and asked for Dear Jane Bundle and was advised there was no item matching that description. Would love to order some of those "fat eights". Thanks, trolley satation

    Yes i did the same, however I will endeavour to give you a link now, never believe everything this dang computer says, they have those fat eigths believe me.

    Here it is: http://www.colonialcrafts.com/catego...abric_Index/c2

    When you get to this page scroll down and around the middle you will find Dear Jane underneath is Fat Eights, just found them for you.

    Hope this helps. Its not a very user friendly site. Is it.
