1930's Prints


Someone must have thought I was a good girl this year, because I got this for Christmas. 


It's a bundle of 50 (that's right, fifty) feedseed fat quarters.


I've been wanting to start a collection of these for a while and now VOILA - here it is!


I'm thinking something bed-sized.  Like another 100 inches square.  And, clearly, scrappy.  Really scrappy.


AND, I got a snazzy new camera.  These pics aren't even in decent lighting conditions... hopefully I can show off its abilities better soon.

Wow, and here I was all excited to let you know I figured out how to use my glass ornaments (see today's post), but you have outdone me x 1000! Or more...

And that's okay!

Oh, I love all of those, and having them all in one bundle is like eating ice cream!
My problem would that I wouldn't want to use them - just look at them. LOL

I've been wondering when you were going to start a new quilt! I think your sense of color, despite the very different patterns of each of those pieces of fabric, is just amazing!

Hey, where's the picture of the cowl!
