Just a Few Things...



Have you seen the new Flea Market Fancy yet? Now that my fat quarter bundle of the re-release of this amazing fabric is here...don't know if I can cut into it...it's so gorgeous!  No, really...I think I'm cutting into it very soon.  First I'm going to cut a couple 2 1/2'' strips and some charm squares from each fat quarter...and then I have a project in mind to start as well.



Some gorgeous swatches arrived the other day from Mark Cesarik.  These fabrics are from his new line, Cosmic Burst for Free Spirit. Thank you Mark...I believe I'm going to use these for paper-pieced hexagons very soon!



And, last, but definitely not least...a wonderful blog tour starts tomorrow!  Monique Dillard has a terrific new book out,   Traditional Fat Quarter Quilts: 11 Traditional Quilt Projects from Open Gate (Quiltmakers Club), and here is the schedule if you're interested in seeing some fun projects. There will also be chances on each blog to win a book, and some bloggers will also give you an opportunity to win one of Monique's terrific rulers!



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love the FMF - I got a 1/2 yd of each. I haven't seen the Mark Cesarik before but I think I need some of that too- very cool! So many great designers these days. Makes my shelves full and my wallet empty -LOL!

Yes...they are beautiful fabrics indeed! ♥♥♥

I got my FMF last week, too. I wonder how long it will be until I can get up the gumption to cut into it. :-)

Lovely fabrics, can't wait to see what you do with them....once you start cutting.

Have a great week!

I can't wait to see what you'll make with your fabrics.

That also looks like a great book. Thank you for the link to the blog tour.

I bought a FQ of each of the Flea Market Fancy as well, but I'm not sure I can make myself cut into it yet!

It's always good to visit you and see what you have been up to. That's some pretty fabric there.

I've heard of Monique Dillards special rulers, but my LNS doesn't carry them. I first heard of them on Thelma's cupcake & daisy blog.

Can't wait to see you use Mark's osmo burst fabric in your hexie project.
