New Fabric

Fabricland had a 40% off sale on quilting fabrics and this is what I came home with yesterday. I particularly like the orange on the left but it doesn't show up as nicely in the picture as in real life. The butterflies are gold and really sparkle. The green ladybug fabric is very cute and I have dyed lots of green that will probably match the background. The dots on the two dotted fabrics are printed on an angle and I think they'll make nice borders, among other things.

If you have children or grandchildren who are interested in cartooning you might want to check out my son's animated drawing lessons at Follow Me Cartooning . He also has some games and animations at Frolic Media.

Oooh. That orange is lovely! It must be spectacular if you feel that the photo isn't doing it justice.

Love the dots too!

Did you purchase your dye-able fabric at Fabricland? Looks like great stuff to dye with. Did you scour it or was it PFD?

Wonderful fabrics there Joyce! I too especially like that one on the left! Awesome! 8-)
Your home dyes are great! Especially that bright pink! Wow!
Love that Circle Play book! A friend of mine has it, and made an one of the quilts with Orientals. Gorgeous fabrics!
Your Circle Play there looks great! That bottom center block is especially interesting... 8-)
Good for you with 3 more finishes! You could have warned me to put some sun-glasses on to see that one! lol! Love the fabrics you've used in there! Great embellishments!
Happy stitchings, and hope you had a wonderful weekend!

equilter had a sale last week too and I got 6 yards of that yellow/orange fabric for a backing. I like the diagonal dot fabrics.

I really like your choice of fabrics. I can never get enough of blues, and I love that one. The orange is fun too. I think it would be great to turn the quilt over and find that one!

It is always interesting to see which fabrics call to different people- the orange with the butterflies is very lovely and would add lots of interest in a quilt.
The dots are funky too..
Thanks for sharing,

Sales in fabric shops - ooohh - I wish! Love the polka dots.

Mm, I love the orange, too. I think it's the same as a blue I bought the other day - we obviously have good taste!
