Fabric Shopping...

Had to pick up a few pieces of fabric.
Some of it is to finish out what is needed.

Some of it is for new plans.
Some of it was on sale.
Some of it was 'simply irresitible'.

Like this fun!
See the photo below for all the fabrics in the collection.

These two pieces are for my Bee Addicted 3 block swap.
My month is April.
I needed a few more neutrals.
I found the perfect backing fabric for the pinwheel quilt!
So soft and feminine like the other fabrics.
 I won 24 pinwheels & 5 fat quarters from Cathy of
A friend from work asked me if I'd be willing to donate a quilt 
for her son's school fundraiser.
Sure.  Why not?
This will be it.
It's due March 15, so I should get started, hey?

I finally have all the fabric for my son's wedding quilt.
This fabric is awesome! 
I had a plan when I bought it.
But, I changed my mind.
I now have a better plan.
(Don't be surprised when I show more fabric on Monday.
I need to pick up the rest of the fabric for my whirlygig quilt...
and my lqs offers a 20% discount on Mondays.)

pssst...this is post 499.

Cool fabrics. And I like Paul and Rachel's colors/prints.

Oh, Jacque, nice fabrics! I remember how much fun it was to go to quilt shops and shop for fabrics!

Great fabric - I like seeing it like this - in doses - when I go into Hayloft Fabrics I get so overwhelmed and don't know where to look! My Mom is the quilter and she tells me to tell her what I like - OMG with over 8000 bolts of fabric - where do you begin! LOL
