I was so excited when this box appeared on my porch yesterday!
I highly recommend the Fat Quarter Shop.

Wanna see what's in there?
Whoa. I haven't bought this much fabric at one time since we made 2 wedding quilts at the same time in 2004.

A pile of Fandango for a wedding ring star quilt.
The happy couple identified a few collections that they liked and I chose this one. At first, I thought I would mix and match, but I didn't want to risk buying this much fabric online and ending up with something I couldn't use.

Dr. Seuss fabric for a baby quilt.
Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss?

A few more prints for a commissioned Christmas tree skirt.

And some more Girl Scout fabric, some from the new collection, because we might need them some day. ; ) The first collection was really geared toward Brownies and Juniors, and some of the new prints are more appropriate for older girls and adult volunteers.

Ugh. Now it all needs to be washed and pressed. Yes, I pre-wash. The chemicals in new fabric make my allergies flare up. Well, I do get to fondle it all while I'm pressing and folding!

Wow!! Now that is a box of fabric! Nice choices too. So I am planning on making the Bali Star too, but in all 30s prints and with the flying geese border layout that she has in the layout page. By the way, just got your swatch. I will get back to you via e-mail.
