New Fabrics...I had to do it!!!!

I had to order some new fabric.  I really did!  I've been on a fabric diet since the new year.  And, I'd been very good about not shopping, but I just had to buy this fat quarter pack.  I'm in a round robin and I found some fabrics here and made my center which I can't show you because we keep our centers a secret until we get our quilts back in November.  We send some fabrics along with our center, but when I went to my stash to find the fabrics that went with my center, I realized that I had cut them all up into squares to make hexagons and strips to make scrap quilts.  So, you see...I really did have to order this.  It's the Fresh Flowers line by Deb Strain for Moda. 

 While looking through my UFOs I found my notebook of Elegant Garden patterns by Edyta Sitar.  Here is one of the applique' blocks that I've finished.  
I hope you are finding some time today for stitching.  Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Hi LuAnn
I love the term "fabric diet", I must remember that! I love your first block from Elegant Garden, but am shocked to learn that you hand't started them yet, considering when you bought them! I look froward to seeing your completed round robin quilt, you are all a very talented group.
