A fabric surprise!

I had completely forgotten that I had ordered some fabric as a little gift to myself, so what a fun surprise it was to find these goodies in the mail! Now I really need to get sewing instead of just fabric collecting. :) But these are Jelly Rolls are just so yummy I almost hate to unroll it!

Fun suprise win!

Don't forget to visit my new friend Maria over at Quilts and Creativity to see her giveaway of the day! Imagine my suprise when I learned I was yesterday's winner too! I have been planning out fabric combos for this fun new apron pattern headed my way and I intend to make a smaller sized version for Cayley too -- she's 4 and loves to help me cook and bake!

New shop and a rare find!

Last week I stumbled upon a new online fabric shop, Lanie Jane. The owner is currently asking for people to check the store out and give suggestions on her blog (and she's going to give 1 commenter a really cute purse she sewed) so I took a look around. Imagine my delight when I saw she had the full set of Dandelion Girl charm squares! I've been wanting them for ages (ever since I saw them at here at the Fresh Figs blog back in April) but never found any locally and the online shops I knew of were all sold out when I went looking. This was late Thursday afternoon and I quickly placed my order. They were in the mailbox today!! Tuesday!!! I ripped the package open in the van in front of the mailboxes and inside were my squares all wrapped up in this cute polka dot tissue with a handwritten note from Jane herself! Little ones won't confirm or deny, but I think I actually squealed. :) No idea what I'm going to make with this yet, but I'm so excited!

Baby Boy's Quilt!

Here are the fabrics I am planning on using for baby boy's quilt! Lots of fabrics because I like the scrappy look--I'll probably add a few more in still, especially with the red. I don't know if it's just my laptop screen or the lighting when I took the picture, but I swear that's not pink! It's more of a cranberry. And the blue is more dusty. Those browns pulled down might be tossed from the quilt since one is undoubtedly flowery and I think the other is too feminine. The tan paisley will be used only for the backing.

I did draw up the quilt pattern I designed in Photoshop so I could play with the color placement. It's a combination of 9-patches and 80-20 stars. I'm still not set on it and want to figure it all out before I start cutting because most of these pieces are fat quarters and I don't want to waste any.
