I had the opportunity to get 3 little packs of fat eighths in 5 color ways each. This first is my favorite above. I had some yardage of these cute little apples in white and red that I used in my new quilt "Kettles in the Kitchen". I really love the little apple shapes, little flowers, buds and leaves. I think sweet is the best word to describe it.
Another little set of fat eighths is this floral dot combination. I like the brown especially because it is the unexpected color. I have to credit Pam with finding this fabric. I think I'd describe it as being a combination between darling and delicious.
I love bows and flowers. This neutral background group of fat eighths is just plain cute. It is so cute that I don't think I could cover it up with applique or use it as a supporting fabric. It needs a starring roll in the perfect quilt. Since I don't have much in quantity I won't really be able to fussy cut so I have to find the right project so the little bows and flowers have center stage.
In a totally different direction I have these half yard Christmas prints in 2 color ways. Remember I'm going to TRY to start on Christmas projects early this year. (Disclaimer: When I made that goal I had no idea I'd have a wedding and be a new grandma in October. I'm just saying you might not see as much Christmas activity out of me this fall as I had planned.) Originally I thought this would be used for Christmas stockings. And it still may be used for that. But I also can see a table runner with Christmas Cottages in a row and this amazing fabric as a border. I think it is the sweetest Christmas fabric ever and it will only require 1 border and look like sooo much more. That is why it is amazing.
Hot hot hot here today and tomorrow with possible rain on Sunday. You know I love that weekend rain. Happy weekend sewing.
