    Looks like there will be more Maxine fabrics besides the ones I posted in this thread:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-34578-1.htm

    They're due out in May.

    Two more designs: "comic bubbles (sayings)" and "comic circles" (with Maxine in them).

    Which colors do you like best?

    The light blue just don't seem like Maxine!!
    She is BOLD & IN YOUR FACE!
    She is Not soft and demure like soft blue!!
    I think that tells which I like the best!!

    Personally, I don't like any fabric with writing in quilts. Craft projects etc. fine, but I think it's distracting for quilting.

    Candace, I haven't actually made anything with fabric with words yet, but I have been collecting the fabric when I find it. The fabric really appeals to me, but maybe I need to know more before I try using it in a quilt, especially since I'm not terribly experienced. I thought it would be especially good for children, as they learn to read. I would love to hear more. :-)

    Kaufman is coming out with still MORE Maxine fabrics! Just found these on their website; they say they'll be ready in January 2011.

    The "Blah Blah" comes in black/white, green, and blue, besides the fuchsia one that I'm posting.

    She's still outspoken. Here are closeups of the first two. (Wish it was possible to read all the sayings on the larger pictures...)

    I can hardly wait. I have been thinking, and maybe several smaller projects for my MIL, rather than a lap quilt. We will see. I think this fabric will be so much fun to work with. Thanks for the heads up. :-)
