Just A Little Bit of Fabric

Today I bought just a little bit of fabric.  I went to the quilt shop to buy some red and green Moda marbles to use on the Dear Jane Christmas signature swap quilt I want to put together.  Vivian over at http://sewathomeonpineridge.blogspot.com/ gave me the idea to use a crisp white as a sashing.  I like that idea, but with only 150 blocks it will be an awfully small quilt although the Dear Jane only has 169.  Anyway I bought 2 yards each of Christmas red and green Moda marbles to use with the blocks somehow. Where is it?  It's still in the sack, and I forgot to take photos of it.  Where is the white for the sashing?   I didn't remember to buy it.  Why you ask?  Well because I found these fabrics.  I think they are all Phillip Jacobs, and most of them will go in my Hearts and Flowers applique' quilt.
 These four fat quarters are what I'm collecting for an I Spy quilt.  I don't know who I would give an I Spy quilt to right at the moment, but I saw a good pattern idea that a friend showed at a gathering and I thought I'd better start collecting conversation prints. Always be prepared!!! 
 And, I bought the Turning Twenty book.  I've seen a lot of talk on the blogs about Turning Twenty quilts, and I wanted to see what it is all about.  There are several variations of the original Turning Twenty book - I believe I saw 6 different ones today.  I bought this one because there is a quilt in the book done in all Kaffe fabrics. 
Now I have to figure out where I put the red and green for the Christmas quilt and get busy on that.  Hope you are all busy stitching.....or maybe shopping.  Have a good day and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.

Pretty, pretty fabrics! I can see how you could be so distracted by them and forget the white for sashing! LOL Sounds like something I would do!

Cute little prints for your eye spy quilt. Have you been collecting for that for a long time? Do you have lots of prints set aside for it?

Happy stitching!

Can't wait to see those new fabrics in your applique blocks. I've forgotten why what I came for in a shop many times. It's easy to get distracted.

I have managed to purchase fabric twice for a Turning Twenty quilt but have yet to make one. Maybe that would be a good Leader/Ender after the log cabin is finished......
