my first shipment

These came from Fabric.com on Friday! What a treat! On the left, selections from Amy Butler's Lotus line. And on the right 1/2 the fabric for the quilt I am making from Sandi Henderson's Ginger Blossom line.



Here's a better look at some of the fabrics for the quilt. Most of the rest that are coming are in the green family. I think it's going to be a looker. I mean if it looks anything like this, it will! (note: if you haven't heard, that giveaway is over. so sad.) I bought that stripe on the end for the binding. I think it will look really cute.

Now, here's a bit of a dilemna. The hazard of buying things online is that you don't always see the whole printed pattern.

For instance, the combo on the left was meant to be the outside and lining of a bag. Now, in the swatch online all I saw was yellow and green, so the stripe would be cute. However, when I opened it up that orange stands out so much it just doesn't look right. Bummer.

And the combo on the right looks okay, but I intended the one on the far right(temple garland) to be the lining, and it's just too pretty to hide on the inside of a bag. I was pleased to see that the stripe looks great with the temple garland print.


Luckily, these two are a perfect match.


Unfortunately, I have 2 orphans. I've ordered tangerine dots to go with the green and I think it will be a really cool contrast. The large blue floral I love. I want to get the blue dots to go on the interior of it, but it's sold out for now. I may just hold onto and make myself something with it - a skirt, pajama pants, aNOTHER bag. . . .


Look for the finished products on etsy soon! Unless someone knows they want one of these combos now. Let me know! We can discuss details on price and dimensions, etc . . .

I love love love it all! There's got to be some way to rescue that one with the orange in it too. Hmm. Can't wait to see what you make with it all!

I absolutely love the Temple Garland!! That is beautiful fabric. SO sounds like you are going to be busy...Good thing you don't have TV. LOL!

Hi Amy,

I've been absent from blogland so I just caught up on this one at least. It is funny how old friends think alike. I have a nursing cover like the one you made out of Amy Butler fabric no less! It is way cute and I get lots of comments on it. I also just bought the book "Amy Butler's Midwest Modern" because I want to be her! I will order a bag from you, if you have time. My daughter and I are going to make some dahlia pillows... later!

Mary - look for an email - I was just wondering today where you've been!

Dana - My etsy shop has been created but it's empty!! I need to get some stuff made to post! I have some jewelry that I've made along with these bags I'm going to post.... Stay tuned I'll let you know when I get it "open for business".

That fabric is delicious!!! I love it when I get a new stack! I have to sit it on the counter and look at it for a few days before I dare cut it up.

I think I got the "I believe" button at Lds.org....can't exactly remember..
