Do You Like The Simply Colour Collection As Much As I Do?


Just take a look at all this beautiful fabric I've received from Cotton Blossom Farm.

 
My prize has arrived from the Something New Sampler Blog Hop - 10 x 1/2 yards from the Simply Color Collection by Vanessa Christenson of V and Co for Moda.  I chose 4 graphite greys, 4 lime greens and 2 spicy hot pinks and looking at them I'm really thrilled with my choices, they look so crisp and remind me, for some reason, of sorbet - simply gorgeous.

Now the small problem of deciding what to make with them!!!

Thank you again to everyone involved :)

    1. I've got an idea now to use it to trial a quilt for a book I've been asked to review, want to think on it a bit longer yet though :)

    1. Isn't it just Fiona? I'm currently thinking a diagonal strip quilt as you go from a book I'm reviewing but not decided if the strips will do the designs justice. Watch this space! :)
