I LOVE ebay! I just bought 53 fat quarters of the brightest cutest prints for my youngest daughter's quilt, and the seller "tucked in" 9 extras! I paid $134.95 including shipping and I used a $9 certificate towards it, so my total was $126. I am doing a happy dance!

And she drew the cutest little picture on the box and wrote me a note. I LOVE ebay sellers that go all out with personal notes and little extras.

I will take pictures, the prints are SO CUTE!

here is the quilt I am making for my daughter:
The pattern is Reflections My Way by Sharon Jasper

That is a fantastic pattern! How big will the finished quilt be?

Here is the fabric. I was thrilled to be able to get so many perfect fabrics in one bundle, because me collecting individual pieces was very time consuming.







a few I had already found:

Beautiful collection of fabrics. You'll be able to do a lot with them.

If I make it exactly how the instructions say, which I never do, it will be 90 x 110". I may end up making it smaller.

I am not sure I will add the strips for the border like the pattern calls for. I do love the strips, just not sure yet if I will do so many rows of them.

I can not find ANY fabric that looks paint splattered like the pattern picture, and that is one of the things I really LOVE about the quilt. So when I went to a quilt expo recently and saw a fabric paint demo done with shaving cream, I KNEW that's what I was going to do for the background squares on this quilt! I have to see how the fabric painting goes before I decide on how many squares I'll make.

It looks like a candy store (but a lot more fun!)

Congratulations on such a great find!

Wow. Christmas in July at your home today.

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.
