New Fabric...a Gift

Remember in my last post I said that I asked for more fabric this last Christmas? 

Well, I did get more fabric, however much my family was offended that I didn't use my Bliss up right away.

My husband had been asking me what I wanted for Christmas this past year, and I was quick to tell him what I wanted...

{A Fat Quarter Bundle of Ruby.}

I even combed the internet to find the best price for him.

I found it at Green Fairy Quilts for the best price, which I love for her great prices on Moda Pre-cuts; and I also love her blog.  I L.O.V.E. to look at the pictures of her amazing quilting.  She is so talented.

So the next time my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told him. 

{Fat Quarter Bundle of Ruby, please.  At Green Fairy Quilts. That's}

I even told him what link to click once he was on the site.

As the month went on, and my husband continued to ask me what I wanted for Christmas, I started getting a little nervous.  I went so far as to look on Green Fairy Quilts to make sure there still was some Ruby, and about two weeks before Christmas, it was all GONE. 

I  felt panicky.  But, I still had faith in my husband, hoping that he acted quickly and got me exactly what I asked for!

Christmas morning came and of course, my husband didn't let me down!  I was so excited to see the bundle of Ruby that I had wanted so badly.  Yes, my husband IS good to me.

I put it up on the piano through Christmas vacation so I could admire it whenever I wanted to.  Here it is next to the corner of my daughter's Pink DS that she wanted so badly for Christmas.

Isn't it beautiful?  It looks soOoOo lovely all stacked up and tied with the cute moda ribbon!   I don't want to even take them apart.  I've been tempted...but I can't yet!  Once you take it apart, it's forever changed.

I love the addition of grey into their colorway this time.  I love the reds, the pinks, the blues, and the greens, also.  I love them all!

Of course, as I opened my gift, and every time since that I even look at it, my kids and my husband say something about how they hope it won't take me a year to use this fabric!

I already have plans for these babies.

Isn't it natural to do a SWOON quilt?  I think so!

(I don't know who's original photo, but I found it on this etsy site)
I can't wait to get started on it.

A girl can never have too many Works in Progress, right??

**Edit...I just came upon a SWOON Quilt-A-Long this morning at i'm a ginger I'm joining in to have some company!  I can't wait!
