  4. Some nice fabrics coming. It is amazing the turn around that fabric has made in the last few years, I like it.

  5. Rebecca---don't show me anymore fabric. I'm dying here. Must not buy. Must finish works in progress. ;-) I have to admit---I am positively giddy over the new Anna Maria Horner line. I'm getting some of the one with the butterflies as soon as it is available.

  6. oohhh! what pretty fabrics! I wonder if I could convince my husband to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for awhile so I can buy it all! Trying SO hard to use what I have, but how can I when all this great new stuff comes out! I'm excited to check out the bloggers quilt festival!

  7. Oh that coral is calling my name.

  8. a lot of general swooning happening here... i LOVE aneela's new line! please, moda, do not over-expose it like you did with pips!!!
