My recent order has arrived...

and so fast. Love The Fat Quarter Shop. Same day shipping.

Everything is packaged to protect it from being left in the elements. 

I got a couple magazines, a pattern, and best of all.... 4 Moda Jelly Rolls. 

They are:  Primitive Muslin by Primitive Gatherings, Antique Fair by Blackbird Design, Faith Collections for a Cause, and Perennials by Kansas Troubles.  (I've never met a Kansas Troubles fabric I didn't like.)
I've only purchased one jelly roll before and it's still in a project box waiting for it's day.  What I like about them is that you get a little bit of each fabric in a line.  Usually, I'll find a fabric line I like then try to chose a quilt pattern that enhances the fabrics and buy just the few fabrics needed for that quilt.  I don't tend to just buy cuts of fabric 'just because'.  I'm afraid that when I do want to use it I won't have enough or won't have a matching fabrics, or something like that. 

First I plan to pair up the muslins with one of the other fabric lines and make this postage stamp quilt that Rachel made on her blog .  Then, since I was shopping for Jelly Rolls and wanted more, I will see what looks good in this book. 

Now, I just need to get busy finishing a few projects.  I get to the quilting point and, if it's not going to the long arm quilter, I'm stuck.  It takes me a while to just dive in and start quilting. 

Oh, so much for my stay at home day yesterday.  I wasn't even away from the computer after posting that post when I got a phone call asking me to run some paperwork over to the school.  So, why not go to the grocery store since I'm out anyway..... and the day went from there.
