What do you think of this?

Well?  You like it?  Nice quilt huh?   Ha!!  It's a quilt back for my red and yellow quilt. 

Since my fabric diet is over (thank goodness!) I went to my local JoAnn's with coupons in hand.  I was looking for fabric to use for the back of my quilt.  I found this cute birdcage fabric that had the perfect colors. 

I also snagged a yard of this gray with the pink birds.  These fabrics are designed by Heidi Grace for JoAnn's.  They have really come a long way in fabric quality at JoAnn's.  I'm so glad that they finally recognized the popularity of quilting. 

While I'm showing off fabric, here are my birthday goodies.  Kona solids, yum!  See the green on the right?  I have already used it up.  The green on the bottom left is the one I used on the pinwheel quilt.  I am really loving having nice solids to work with.  If I could do some whining for a second, I really wish I knew when my kona color chart (the one on backorder) was gonna get delivered.  It's really hard to pick colors from a computer screen.                                                      
I am going on a weekend quilt retreat in a few weeks.  That means I need to start thinking about what to work on.  I know for sure that some of these solids are going to be packed up for retreat.  Oh boy, I can't wait!!  If you ever get a chance to go on retreat, DO IT!


  1. Oh I love all the fabrics!! I need some solids too.

  2. Lots of lovely eye candy - glad your 'diet' is over. Enjoy retreat
