Fabric...lots and lots of fabric

So I guess my whining mentioning about not winning any BOMs worked because look what I came home with Wednesday!

25 Disappearing 4-patch blocks made by OMQG members!

 Our guild is also participating in the Habitat Challenge with Jay McCarroll's new fabric line from FreeSpirit so I also came home with these six lovely fat eights.

Michele made me one of her famous mini quilts!!!  Love her house minis and this one is ALL MINE now!  Also included in my gift of goodies was this scrumptious stack of solids and little baggie of cute squares.

Don't you just find this selvage strip the perfect ribbon for wrapping?

A young woman donated these boxes of her mother's fabric for our guild to case you didn't know....fabric is heavy!

I'm still going through the boxes, but seeing this group of fabrics gave me the idea to make this quilt.
Don't you just love fabric and the unlimited possibilities it provides?!

Have an amazing weekend!


  1. I have been interested to see people talking about this Habitat challenge in the MQG blogs. I bought a half-yard bundle of it online last winter when it came out but once it arrived I broke up with it hard. I am using it in dribs and drabs when I can - but I am looking forward to seeing some wonderful creations that will make me fall in love with it again!

  2. Fabric: the best therapy ever. That mini quilt is adorable so I clicked on Michele's blog and am adding it to my blog roll. Like I need something else to read...Have a great weekend, Rene'!

  3. Hey, Rene'... May I borrow a glass of whine? Love it ;)

  4. I have been wanting to make the fair and square quilt for a while too. It is just so cool and manly. I guess I like it since I have three sons and always seem at a loss as to what to make for them. I can't wait to see how yours turns out!!
