    Oh boy!! :D
    I think I pulled the CW fabrics... if those more familiar with them see one in my pile that's not, or one in K's pile that is... alert me. :wink: They will be added to what's left from Mark's CW quilt to make a Broken Dishes.

    The horse panel is the most beautiful--most realistic one I've ever seen. Kennedy's eyes will POP when she sees it, and if I know her, the wheels of what to turn it into will start one second after that. :D And she will treasure the homespun with horses. It's sophisticated looking--just her style.

    I think she will especially love the blue with the trees too. I told purplemem I pictured her making more pencil cases from the fairy fabric. From the short time I've been working with and watching Kennedy quilt, scrappy is her love, so this will all add delightfully to her just growing stash.

    I might not see her until Thursday... but maybe I'll drop this to her this weekend. I'll have to see what's up with our schedules. I will not be giving it to her dad to give her--I want to watch those eyes light up. :wink:

    purplemem--THANK YOU!!! From both of us. {HUGS!!}

    Some of the CW pieces have a selvage so I'm sure, but the one I'm wondering about the most is the blue on the far left.... it's from Connecting Threads....

    Aww :oops: :oops:
    I was just trying to encourage a new quilter

    I can't wait to see her reaction to the horse fabric, she's such a sweetie

    And Karla,
    I'm pretty sure the blue connecting threads fabric is NOT CW Repro

    But I think the yellow with the reddish flower sketches is...

    The gold one, and maybe the blue with trees. Not sure on trees, but really pretty positive on the gold one. I don't know where I got it (sorry :oops: ).

    I still loved the fairies, would look so pretty with sage green, but I didn't have any green to match. :cry: Rasberry would look pretty with it, also. Didn't have any of that, either. :evil:

    Have lots of fun! I want to see pix :wink: :wink:

    The gold one reads "Anatasia by PB& J." The blue trees reads "Judie Rothermel for Marcus Brothers," so I don't think either of those are... but I'll keep some of the gold anyway. :wink:

    It will take a while for pictures of creations... I have two quilts to finish and one to start before Broken Dishes, and four pillowcases to whip up for special occasions.... by then the mares will need watching and then the garden will need planting... and THEN I'll most likely get to BD. But I'll surely call your attention to whatever is made with them. Kennedy is working on her Jacob's Ladder now... but she may pause to play with these....getting pictures of what she creates will only happen if she brings them here on Thursdays so I can snap the photos.... so please don't be looking for something soon. :wink:
