WARNING! FABRICS HAVE POWER

If you have read this blog before, you probably know that these are not my colors.  However, I must say when I saw Jill unwrapping these bolts of fabric the other day when I was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, I did a double take.  These fabrics must have some kind of secret power, I uttered to myself.  I found them stunning!  The line is Treenware and Berries by Marcus Fabrics.
Above are the 10" square packets that coordinate with the Treenware and Berries fabrics. 
Jill also showed me these new fabrics that just arrived.  The line is Prairie Gathering by Marcus Fabrics.  The 10" square bundles are also available in this line.  Better get into the shop quick to grab some of these luscious fabrics before they are gone, which will probably happen in no time because these fabrics have power!

NOTE:  Yesterday Mary Burton asked if the Fresh Picked Posies BOM is still available.  Yes it is.  You can pick up the pattern at the shop.  You choose your own fabrics.  The group meets on the fourth Tuesday afternoon of the month and anyone is welcome to join us.  I am available to help with applique, demonstrate my freezer paper technique, and choose fabrics.  If you don't need help, feel free to work at your own speed.  Anyway I see it, applique is a fun thing to do and I hope you will join us.

ATTENTION:  The Charity Quilt group will be meeting this Monday at the shop.  They are asking for donations.  If you have UFO blocks, 100% cotton fabric that you know you will never use (you know how our tastes change), incomplete projects (like a quilt top half done), batting, etc., please bring them to the Shop.  This wonderful group of quilters will use them to make much-needed quilts for charity.
