Goodies By Mail

I have more fabric stash than I can reasonably expect to use so I've been trying to restrain myself when new fabric lines come out.  I have not been entirely successful with the restraint thing, though.  But this time, I managed to limit myself to some charm packs, rather than my usual fat quarter bundle plus yardage.

I bought a couple of charm packs from Fig Tree's newest line for Moda, called California Girl


The colors in the line are so cheerful.  I particularly like both shades of blue and the taupe as a neutral.  I figure I can always use the charm packs in a Schnibble or work them into another project. 

I also bought a pattern from Fig Tree, called Boardwalk.    



Boardwalk was designed for the California Girl line but I am thinking of using my layer cake of Mill House Inn. 


But first, I need to finish the current project!

Love that California Girl line from Fig Tree. I've been trying to resist but it may be futile and I already bought that same pattern and it looks so pretty. Have fun - hope you made progress on the project you're already working on!

Charm packs are irresistable! I don't think they count toward fabric purchases.

I just purchased that pattern too. Thought it was cute but complex enough. New blog to me. Very interesting. Your finished quilt is darling. Stephani in TX (Tomazec@aol.com)
