Fabric fun!

The nine patch quilt along has been so great!

I am happily cutting into fun fabrics, and I am starting to become comfortable pairing fabrics.

I have been surprised by how great some combinations turn out.

I used my new found skills for some fun....I had a grand time making some fat quarter packs with the new contest at The Fabric Shopper. You go to Whipstitch Fabrics and make your own dream fat quarter bundle from her stock.

I made three:
Sugar Sprinkles - like the colored sugar the boys top their oatmeal with!

Cool Lake

Through the Garden Window

Of course, then I couldn't get those pink and oranges out of my head, so I ordered the Sugar Sprinkles!

Wow, I love all of your fabric combinations! You should be working in a quilting store. I have looked at the contest but not yet taken the time to make my own bundle.
