My heart goes pitter patter...

Okay, first off, comments from yesterday made me laugh hard. I think for next fabric Tuesday, we will add those to the list of what makes us weird crafting freaks! Funny stuff, I could relate to them all!

Second, I don't think I can properly express my happiness over this fabric line without crying! Seriously! When this came to my doorstep, I could feel my heart rate quicken because I knew what it would be. 

I called Meg and got all giddy, but somehow still felt let down not having someone near to share it with. (I don't mean share as in give any away, just share in my joy with me!)

Bless my husbands heart, he knew I was so excited when he came home from work he went through every single piece with me and pretended to be so excited. It worked!


This fabric line is called Children at Play by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller we love Michael Miller fabric lines.   I LOVE everything Sarah Jane creates, she is an amazing artist!  Her prints on etsy are over the top darling!

Okay, the good and bad, is this fabric line is HUGE! I think it has 54 prints? Good for the variety, bad because I think I need every print!


These are my favorites. Little girls playing with their dolls in the fields, pinwheels, balloons, bunnies. Serisously!


I have made a quilt up with these fabrics. This is the backing. Cute?


And here is my "teaser." It is just the quilt top, and I wanted to have it all finished before I showed it off. I LOVE it!  Good thing I have 4 girls, but they are already fighting for it. I think girl #2 likes it the most. I think she will get it Christmas morning...


Now that I look at the teaser, I think you can see exactly what I did...hmmm... that is okay. The plan is to post on Friday the finished quilt!!!  I was up til 2 am Monday, 3 am last night, and tonight will probably be 3 am again...boo to that!

PS this fabric line has a whole set for boys too!!!

PPS Also make sure to join our flickr group for our upcoming quilt along here.
