wooo hooo - the gorgeous colourbox from Oakshott arrived yesterday - omg what a wonderful rainbow of gorgeous colours - 100 fat eighths - yes - one hundred
|notice how the colour card exactly matches the fabrics - wow !|
and all thanks to my very lucky win at Lily's Quilts and Oakshott Fabrics !
I almost didn't want to take them out of the plastic they were wrapped in - and it took a while to actually take a piece out of the box - didn't want to mess up that beautiful rainbow of colours :)
|this is 78 Mallow - just in case you wanted to know :)|
|the back of the colour card has all the colours listed for easy reference|
The box also came with a colour guide just in case I want to order some more - of course I've already decided on a few colours that I must have yardage of - just wait a little while and I'll need way more :)
I had thought that I would use some of the fabrics for the New York Beauty quilt along but of course now they're here I don't want to use them straight away - goodness, I need some quality stroking and touching time first :) so I might have to find some other fabric to use for that quilt along !
ok - time to stop drooling !
but it really was a fabric bonanza this week :)
my fugly giveaway fabrics both arrived this week - thanks to Fiona and Susan for their generous giveaways :)
I also received the February FQS Blogger's Choice bundle
and a few fabrics from previous bundles to make the Craftsy BOM quilt.
and also from the Fat Quarter Shop, the kit for the Bunny Hill Designs Scrappy Plate Club arrived this week.
I know - another sew along! - but I absolutely love polka dots so when I saw the sew along on Anne's blog I just had to join in and purchase the kit - polka dot dresden plates - very cute :)
