Look what Megan and I got...

Okay, this made us giddy. (lots of things make us giddy when we are together and Megan has been in town for over a week, and has over a week more!)  First I apologize for the photos, we have to craft late (due to the miniature humans that live with us and demand our attention) thus, no natural light...  Anywho...

Our first shopping stop was The Material Girls Quilts in South Jordan Utah. We LOVE the owner Nadine. She gave us our start in selling patterns. She told us she would buy them before we even made any! She just gives us confidence boosts all the time. She also gave us the NICEST letter of recommendation to get into Quilt Market... Plus she is super funny and fun to be around.


So we saw this intriguing little brown bag gem in the corner of her shop. I had seen them before but never purchased any because I was scared it would be scraps from the bolts that never sold due to their ugliness. But with Megan there and her encouragement, we decided to go for it. 
When we opened it we were giggling so hard. We were super happy! We want more of them!  Look at all these fun prints! There were only a few prints we didn't like which we will tie in a cute bow and give our Mother for her birthday...so nothing lost there.


There is enough Riley Blake to make a Halloween runner for each of us!

There is probably over 6 yards of fabric in here!  Hopefully you will see some finished projects with these prints in them sometime soon.  Thanks Nadine!

Awesome!!! I love the fabric you got too! I just picked up some of that black halloween fabric with the ghosts and pumpkins, etc. Too cute! :)
