Pretty Fabrics

Wow, Thursday again? Already? Seriously, this has not been a very long week! And I reallly reallllly reeeeeeeally needed it to be! It just so happens that tomorrow is September 27th (also known as my hubby's b-day)!!!!!!!! And what have I got for him? NADDA! I'm busting my tail while he is at work to finish his quilt....well, technically it's mine, but I'm gonna say it's for him....shhhh, y'all don't tell him!!!! ;-)
  This week has been all about FINISHING projects for me! I can't show you any of what I have finished YET, it's coming though, soon, I promise! I'm hoping that I can get the rest of "his" quilt quilted and bound by 6 p.m. tomorrow....I will have from around 8:30 in the morning till 6, think I can do it? I'm going to get the binding ready tonight, he'll never know what I'm doing! Sometimes I love how oblivious he is, other times its rather annoying!
  So, since I don't have any pretty projects to share with you at the moment I thought I'd share some pretty fabric that have been recently added to my hoard I mean stash! ;)
I FINALLY got my hands on some fabric that I have been DYING (literally) DYING for!!!!

Isn't it just gorgeous?!?!? I love this line! It's called Collage by Carrie Bloomston for Windham Fabrics!
I had a lot of fun just folding and petting this fabric! (I know I can't be the only one who does this!)

I really love the colors in this line! The purples are soooo gorgeous, the blues are amazing, let alone the rest of the colors!!!
But, I do have to say that these 2 text prints are my favorite out of the line! I have big plans for these fabrics! It may take a little bit for it to all come together, but I'm hoping I can make it work!!!
I was asked by my favorite quilt shop owner to make some Halloween goodies for her shop.....SUUUURE! NO PROBLEM! I jumped right on it! (literally, I had an almost completed quilt top the day I got the fabric! LOL!)
This line is called Not So Spooky by Jennifer Jangles for Blend fabrics. It's the first time I had ever worked with their fabrics and I really must say this...I LOVE THE WAY THEY FEEL! (I think the "technical" term is the "hand" of the fabric....I could be wrong though) I mean really, so soft!!!
This is a really fun line. It's not something I would've normally picked to work with so I was a little bit....undecided as to what make with it but then inspiration struck! I love being pushed out of my comfort zone and being challenged to make something outside of my "norm" (if I even have a norm)
I'm really happy with the way the projects turned out, and Teresa (favorite quilt shop owner) is too! I will be sharing those projects with you soon!!!!

Ooooohhhh, guess what?!?!?! I'm going to be teaching! YAY! I'm so excited!!!! Wanna know what one of my classes is going to be? Suuure ya do!

I'm going to be making this awesome table topper called Rock Candy by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts! I'm so excited to make it! I wish I could dive right in, buuuut, gotta finish just a few other things first!

I picked out these gorgeous prints from Madrona Road for my Rock Candy topper! I know it's going to be GORGEOUS!

I am a little nervous about binding it though. I've never done any kind of binding other than rectangles or squares....just gotta breathe! I can do it, eventually! LOL!
So, what are you guys up to this week? Have any pretty fabrics joined your collection?

~Hope y'all are having a GREAT day!!!~

Yay! My husband's birthday is today too! Thankfully, I've told him his quilt is a Christmas present, so today is no stress for me. I hope you get the binding done! :)
