Birthday Fabric





I asked for Birthday money for fabric and this is what I got. The Aster Manor is going to be used for the Elizabeth pattern by Miss Rosie. I think I need a couple more of the creams and then I can start. I am hoping to make it my summer project. I also got a charm pack of Boutique. I love love the colours. I am not yet quite sure what I am going to make with it.






I have also been searching a long time for Halloween fabric for my Halloween swap quilt. I was hoping to piece it with all of the great suggestions you gave but then after looking at all the fabric realized I had to many bits and pieces. I knew what I did not want for backing but it was hard to decide what I did want. I finally chose this one with the cute spiders. Since I spent all last summer working on the spider web blocks I thought this would be a great remembrance of that.
