Fabric + News

I got some gorgeous fabrics in the mail this week. The Flea Market Fancy for my stash, the Fungus Among Us from Japan for my Doll Quilt swap quilt that I will make for my partner and.....

New Fabric

The owl print is from this Pottery Barn line, I love everything about it.

I posted about this on Flickr and so many people were telling me that they LOVED it too, and one awesome person Chen from my Pieced Together Quilting Bee emailed me telling me that she had some of the sheets left over and was willing to swap with me! Whoo Hoo. She wants me to make her a 12" block in exchange for the fabric. I can't wait to start on the block for her, it is on my list of things to do next week.

I have some other exciting news! Have any of you heard of the blog The Fabric Shopper? It is a great blog for finding all things fabric. Sales, were to find the fabrics you want, previews of the new lines of fabrics that are coming out, just to name a few. Well....Melanie contacted me to ask if she could feature my blog!!!! Uh, ya, of course, I would be sooooo flattered. She posted it today. If you would like to see it here it the link:

Stitches & Scissors Feature

p.s. please don't think I am a slacker I am still waiting for a couple of blocks from the quilting bee to come in the mail and I will then start working on my quilt. I am so excited to put it all together. To help satisfy, here is a quick pic of some of the blocks so far. Sorry about the picture quality, I took it with my iphone.

Blocks I got today from Tina

Awesome fabrics! Love the owls and I collect mushrooms (it's a long term project plan) so I'm going to have to go find those now.

I love that Brooke Owl fabric. Any suggestions on how I could get my hands on some without buying the sheeting new at PBK? I don't sew but would like to get some to custom order a carseat cover on Etsy. Any advice you have would be great!

I love this too!
Wondering where to find the fabric it self? Any ideas?
