Monopoly and Gone with the Wind

Just found out that Quilting Treasures will be coming out with two interesting new groups: Monopoly and Gone with the Wind. No pictures are available yet; I *hope* they will be posted by September.

Backyard Bandits - animal fabrics

I've heard it said that life imitates art... but life imitates fabric? That's what it felt like this week! Fabri-Quilt's new Backyard Bandits group just arrived... and it contains a rabbit fabric, an absolutely adorable raccoon fabric, and a skunk fabric.

And... last night I finally saw who it is that's digging little holes in my lawn. It's a skunk, looking for (and finding!) grubs. He was more white than black, with an absolute fountain of a tail. And he was quite a vigorous digger, not at all disturbed by three onlookers plus a cat!

Have you seen the new "Pink Ribbon" (breast cancer awareness) fabric collection by Marcus? It includes quite a few coordinates that are not "cause-related" and can be used in many ways... including the patchword-style block pictured here:

And here are some of the selections with the pink ribbon loops:

Did we mention there are butterfly prints in this group?
