Fabric Finds

My block of the month quilting class always has something to feature
and this fabric really caught my eye.  I love the different look, 
not just green and red but black of all colors!
The sample was actually more like the pattern below, 
just a bit different but that pattern was gone so 
I selected a table runner that can also be changed into place mats.
I like the snowmen for the large print, 
the green tone on tone plus the white with red dots for the checkered portion
and maybe the large dots for the binding.
Otherwise there is a red with white dots available.
I love the big dots but you may not be able to see much of them.

This fat quarter selection is part of a grouping, 
except for the green flowered half yard in back.
I also picked up another little pattern card.
I don't think I'll use these for it but you never know.
I'm a little worried about getting the squares in line on the log cabin portion.

This is the last owl fat quarter.
Plus the optional binding material for the 
snowman table runner/placemats.
Then I liked the flowered pattern because it could 
coordinate with another fabric I have.

This is lovely, I wish you all could see it in real life.
It's a batik with birds and flowers, sort of green/gray/blue background-
really beautiful.  There is a lot of coordinating fabric 
but I don't know what I'd make.
I just fell in love with the birds so had to get at least a fat quarter.

Most of these fabrics don't have a printed selvage.
Nothing on these birds either- I have to figure this one out.
The snowman print is S'Noel by Dana Brooks for Lazy Daisey.
Green on green by the snowmen - Snow by Alice Kennedy Lazy Daisy Cottage for Henry Glass
Owl- Timeless Treasures
Green half yard (also on my owl pillow) is Bliss by Moda.

Love the snowman prints and their coordinating fabrics! I would probably go with the red with small white dots for the binding, but that's just me! Can't wait to see your finished projects! :)


I like all of your fabrics!

That retro looking owl fabric is so fabulous!
