Fabulous fabric

I know I said I would not receive any more “surprise” packages in the mail, because I would try not to buy more fabric for a while, but this was a surprise without the “s.

I received these fabulous Christmas fabrics from Annika Pettersson, the editor of Fat Quarter, the Swedish quilting magazine, as a thank you for a pattern that will be published in November. I rarely buy Christmas fabric, so this was an extra nice surprise. I love the larger scale fabrics and the pink flowers.

I have been looking through my stash for fabric (matching/ coordinating/ contrasting) to add to the mix, as perfectly matched fabric and I don’t play very nicely together. Somehow my brain doesn’t work that well creatively if the work is already cut out for me.

So, got fabric; have to decide what to make of it; probably something simple to show off the fabulousness of the fabric; oh, too many ideas…
