Paperweight

Look what found it's way into my stash last week!

Kaffe FQ bundle

Against all odds and over 1100 other comments, I happened to be the lucky blogger to win this fabulous giveaway at Rita's Red Pepper Quilts. Thanks to Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works for sponsoring the giveaway. Paperweight and Roman Glass are my all-time favourite Kaffe Fassett prints, so I was very excited when this fat quarter stack arrived!

Now, what to do with them.....

Lucky you. I have been looking at my quilting book this morning for ideas on what to make for a couple quilts that I bought material for yesterday. In the 4 patch type I am partial to the paper pinwheel and the indian start patterns? Or you could just ship it over to me lol.
