Fabric Galore!!

I said last night that I had lots of fabric to show you.

Feast your eyes!

Remember this photo I showed you of the sample quilt
of this year's BOM I am doing?  
Not sure who took the photo and printed it out, 
but her ink was apparently running low...
the alternate blocks are light yellow.

After much thought, I decided that if I was going to 
put as much work as I will be putting into this, 
I wanted it to be something for me.  
The colors of the sample quilt are pretty,
but just not my colors.  Ya know?  
So.  The owner of my LQS & I put together
a wonderful collection of fabrics for MY quilt.
I am so excited! 

Here are the fabrics that will be used in the blocks.
(there's another green one that I didn't photograph... 
it's the same fabric as the border on Julie's quilt.)

Here are the fabrics for the alternate blocks, borders and binding.  
Don't you just love that bias stripe?  I sure do!
It's for a small inner border and the binding.
(the background of this big floral is actually a dark brown, 
like the dark floral in the photo above.  Looks purple on my monitor.)

My good friend, Jane (from here), sent me a box of fabric.
Here are the photos.  Holy Schmoly...
I kept taking out piece after piece after piece!
It is all wonderful!  
Thank you, Jane!

I finally started picking up fabric for my son's quilt.
Paul & Rachel got married in December
and asked me to make them a double wide lap quilt.
Here are 3 pieces of the au.then.tic. fabric collection...
6 more are on the way to me.
I'm going to need at least 10 more fabrics...
which means that I get to go to the PRIM quilt shop
to select some wonderful blacks, reds, & purples.
Cannot wait!
This is going to be a fun quilt to do.

Last, but certainly not least, here is the fabric for my doll quilt swap (DQS8).
It's a MoMo Wonderland charm pack and 2 pieces of yardage.
I know exactly what I'm going to do 
and I think (hope) my partner will be very happy!

That's it for now!

Wow, lots of wild patterns and cool colors! Can't wait to see how they all fit together! Just let me know when you send the box with the quilts, then I will call you when I get it so I can cry like a baby on the phone with you! :)

Holy schmoly! That really IS a lot of fabric! Great eye candy though! Can't wait to see the BOM quilt... it's always interesting to see a quilt pattern stitched up in different colors! I like the colors you chose even more than the sample! :-)

Jacque, glad to see all your fabric laid out! Can't wait to see what you do with the Egyptian fabric! I thought it was gorgeous but couldn't think of anything to do with it. I know it has a good home!
