A little bit of fabric

Let the games begin....or should I say sewing?
These are the new fabrics I bought to work around for making baby quilts...click on pictures to enlarge them. Next, just to come to the decision how I want to use them...that is the hard part for me. The second one down is the one that my daughter wants me to use for her secretary. I got enough of it to do two baby quilts. I think the scenes on it are just about, but not quite 7 inches square.

The top one is going to be harder...I haven't measured them but they are big--about 9 1/2 inches by 12 inches...I wish I had had my camera to take a picture of the top the store had made from it. It was quite interesting...

Now the jungle animal one I thought to lay a ruler on it so you can kind of get an idea...and even two of the others have their own tape measure printed with them, just not sure if you can read it in the enlarged picture.

And this bottom one--these are small squares. I can use a 4 inch ruler and it will give seam allowance without cutting into the picture if I remember correctly. They are the perfect size to use as the center of a log cabin....or I can see using them in a 9-patch.

I know I only have two baby quilts I want to make, but I thought I better take advantage and buy more than I needed...good things like this don't come along every day. Each one had a good feel to the fabric and that made them even more hard to resist....

BTW, it is STILL raining...it has not totally stopped all day. Sometimes it rains harder than others but never actually stopped.

How much fun it will be working on these quilts, very bright and perky! I always forget about using panels for blocks and I am sure it will add interest to the quilts! YOU GO GIRL!! Barb
