Warning - Danger Ahead!

(At least for those of you on a fabric diet!)
(This post is now linked with Katherine's Corner and PhotoLifeSite, as part of the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop #17! These fabrics are definitely some of my favorite things! A warm welcome to any hoppers that stop by the Lilypad!)

Now, before I start, I'll tell you that I did NOT go off my use-fabric-from-my-stash resolution . . . these are actually my winnings from SewCalGal's lovely Christmas show! A mouth-watering array of fabric yumminess!

So, if you are on a fabric diet, you have been forewarned -- there is danger ahead! We'll give the faint of heart a moment to click away, and then we'll proceed . . .

Here's a scene to remind us of springtime (which I am hoping will come early this year) and give them time to scoot away:

Now! Are you ready? Here is the first bundle for you to admire --- the complete, twenty-eight (oh, be still my heart) piece collection of Sweet Pickins from Darlene Zimmerman's Clothesline Club . . .

Mr. Snoodles has already claimed rights to the quilt made from this loveliness! With names like "Screamin' Yellow Fruit Stripe," "Summer Fruit," and "Evening Spring Berry," how could I not snag this bundle?
I think I know what scrappy pattern I'll use for that, and I'll post my progress on OleFrogEyes for you to see!

Here is the second one that I fell for -- Pat Sloan's bundle, called "Simple Stitches." If this one makes your little heart go pitty-pat, it is still available (and on sale!) at our wonderful sponsor, the Fat Quarter Shop. Just click here. I am an enabler, aren't I? (Wink)

Nineteen fat quarters and a panel! Woot!

Here is the last item that I chose with my gift certificate --- just couldn't resist this jelly roll of Ready Set Snow:

Looks like I may have gotten the last one of those . . . I didn't seem them on FQS site any more. 

Hope all of you are having a great start to 2012 . . . we are planning for some guest posts soon from several uber-talented quilters, and in February we'll be guest posting again at Sew We Quilt, so stop back by as often as you can . . . there's always something fun happening at the Lilypad!

Today I am linking up with two linky parties: the fabulous Minutes for Me party hosted by Marcia, at this link: Minutes for Me. Marcia has an awesome idea for those tiny fabric scraps that you hate to let out of your hands --- share them as notecards!  (I figure this qualifies as minutes for me, cos I love playing with these and sketching my ideas into my notebook!)
And also the Rock and Share party at the Shady Porch --- lots of great ideas, there, too!

And one last note for those of you that like freebies (that's all of us, right?) . . . pass the word along, that when I get over 600 followers, I'll be having a giveaway!!
