Fun Fat Quarters

I have had a gift certificate from Christmas that has been burning a whole in my purse, so when I was asked to quilt a top from an old customer I of course said yes since we would meet at the shop I had the certificate for. Here are the FQ's I spent my certificate on. I love the ones below, "Flights of Fancy". The colors are just so springy!

The second group is "Traditions" by Moda. These are the types of fabrics that I am always drawn to. I love the dark rich colors and the quilts I make out of them just seem so warm and inviting.
I am still working on my hexagons and am quilting a quilt for the ministry at church. I have my quilts stacked and laid aside once again, but one day I will actually get one quilted. :D

I love both sets of fabrics as well! I was going to say that I tend to go for those darker, more country colors, too, but those springy colors are just great! Maybe because we are all SO ready for Spring?!?! :o) Good choices!

Love your new fabrics...I tend to always go toward the darker fabrics, but oh those springy once sure are wonderful. Have fun!

I love all those fat quarters, I tend to gravitate toward the second set, but am certainly noticing types like the first set more! Great pics!!!
