Aren't these fun?

I have been trying to refrain from trolling the internet fabric sites and buying fabric while I'm here at home and have some time on my hands. However, when I saw a special coupon for  Fabric Fascination on Etsy I couldn't resist. This lovely package came in the mail the other day.

So fun to open this up and see the lively fabric in the box. This is Folk Life by Anthology fabrics. It is not my usual choices but I have been looking at this set for a few weeks. And then I saw a special offer on Selvage Blog and I just couldn't pass it up. If you haven't yet discovered Karen Griska's Selvage Blog, be sure to go and check it out. She shows some of the most amazing quilts from all over.

Just can't wait to get started. I have seen many quilts online that have white backgrounds and I'm thinking that might spotlight these fabrics. Or would black be better? Any ideas?


  1. What a great collection of fabrics! I agree with your first choice...a white background will really show them off nicely!

  2. I think using the Lil Twister (or bigger one) template with white every other block would look really cool and highlight the material!
