almost half way!

Like everyone said yesterday in my comments, the last block is going very fast - and I only stitched for a little while last night! Mostly because I had a good mail day. :-) I had to play with my new fabric for a while.
My French General fabric came in the mail yesterday. It's so beautiful! I had not seen the entire line because the store I went to in early December was already sold out of several bolts so this was the first time I saw everything. It's just wonderful. I can't wait to get my hands on it. Above are the big pieces that came with the pre-packaged kit. All 1/4 yard, 1/3 yard and fat quarter pieces.

I also received a layer cake - that is new to me since I've only started back with quilting recently. When I kinda stopped buying new stuff a couple of years ago Moda wasn't making all the pre-cuts yet. But I find that they are very cool and I'd love to pick up a couple of quilt books that use the pre-cuts. And it all came is this cute bag. I can't wait to get going on it. Somehow I think that is going to be my weekend regardless of my other quilt projects in progress. :-)

Beautiful fabrics Margie! That bag is cute too. I'm not up on any of this new quilting stuff since I quit about 7 or 8 years ago.

You're on the home stretch! You'll definitely be dancing soon. And love, love those FG fabrics. I'm like you - I've been out of quilting for a few years and just getting back into it. I'm learning a lot about cupcakes, jelly rolls, etc. Makes for a lot of fun
