    Some more finds. Some of these fabric I bought to go along with other fabric I already have.

    I found these scrap packs for $4.00. Love it when I find a bargain.

    Last set I promise

    I saw this Christmas panel & fell in love with it so I had to buy the coordinating prints naturally just in case. Am not sure what I will do with it yet but I will figure out something I am sure.

    There is a post here of a jacket that has two blocks which were embroidered, then various size and shaped pieces around it. This fabric would have the perfect squares to build around and you would have a christmas jacket to wear for years. My granddaughter loves for me to get out a christmas vest I purchases YEARS ago. Love the fabrics.

    they are called frostings by Piece O' Cake and they are for applique. There is no size on the package anywhere.

    It is by superior threads, the web site is www.superiorthreads.com

    Yum, you have had fun! Enjoyed looking at all your selections. I am overwhelmed whenever I visit a new shop because there are just too many choices, and I don't NEED any more fabric! Tee hee! :lol:

    Oh wow It looks like you are having So Much Fun! I know you are going to love the mary ellen's best press. I am curious about the superior thread for applique too. I will have to check that out on thier site.

    It looks like a really fun haul. I am looking forward to seeing what you make with it all. Oh ... Who is the manufactorer of the golfing panels? I really like that.

    It is licensed to Wilmington Prints, called "Sports Collage". Web site is www.wilmingtonprints.com

    I do love the Mary Ellens spray, this was a new fragrance so I had to try it out. So far I have been to 6 quilt shops in the last 2 weeks. Three I have been in before when we lived in Marietta Ga for a year(just left there in April). Others are around the Suwanee, Lawrenceville Ga area. I love checking out quilt shops I have not been in before and I atleast buy a few fat quarters to add to my collection that I will make a quilt from one day of my shop hops.

    I really love your choices, especially the first picture...the foliage print and the dragonflies. Thanks for sharing your very successful shop hop....my last one was disappointing....though I did get a large discount and extra fabric as I bought some end of bolt and it was a bit grubby. Some stores here don't seem to have a very wide range at the moment, about time they got a bit more creative and started thinking outside the box.

    Sharon,
    It is by Timeless Treasures called Dragonfly. Good luck finding some, if you don't let me know and I can get it here if they still have some.
