Swap Fabrics finally arrived!

My very favorite delivery man in brown paid me a visit today and left a box of goodies from Fabric.com. I was very good this time and only ordered what I needed, but it was still fun to open the box. Fabric.com carries all the name brand quilting fabrics you find in your local quilting shops, plus accessories and notions and other necessary items. Shipping is free for US orders over $35 and I needed fabric anyway and have had very good luck with them in the past, so I went shopping. Would you like to see what I got?

I Spy swap fabricI hope Karen doesn't mind if I show off my I Spy fabrics for her square swap. I thought the colorful little monsters at the top were pretty darn cute.

The seashell fabric was exactly what I was looking for to line the mini-duffel I crocheted this summer for my summer giveaway, but I ended up having to use something else. I think it will make a great I Spy quilt square.

And the bright and funky chickens and roosters were just too fun to pass up. I just love how round and fat the chickens are!

Red and Aqua Disappearing 9 patch swap fabricAlso in this box were my red and aqua fabrics for Jane's disappearing 9 patch block swap. I like some of these fabrics so much that now I wish I had ordered even a little more extra! I think all the reds are good, but I'm not entirely sold on all of the aquas. The two on the right just don't seem to go. The one on the far right is much too turquoise, and the one next to it is a little too gray, although its name did say aqua. The others are all good for aqua, even though they might not look like it. The one between the flowers and the polka dots really is more aqua than it looks.

So I think I'll peek into my stash, or perhaps use this as an excuse to make another trip to a quilt shop I've been wanting to check out a little ways down the highway! Hmmm, now there's an idea!

Today is the 19th birthday of our oldest, Elizabeth, of Babette blanket, Irish cross stitch, and knitted school color hats fame. She is so busy with school and work right now that I don't think we'll have time to celebrate her birthday until Sunday. But you can bet I'll be remembering what a special day it is!

Happy Stitching!
