simply sweet.

so once upon a time i was surfing around on the fat quarter shop.

yall know how it goes...
you add a million things to your cart.
wish like crazy you could afford one of everything.
then you hit "x" when your cart makes you wanna throw up cause it's SO full.

yeah.
yall totally understand, right?!?!

well these lovlies have been in & out of my cart for like ever.
and now they're mine all mine.
{thanks camille for showing yours. it was the push i needed.}

aren't they the perfect spring{ish} fabrics???
they're even yummier in real life.
promise.

i have NO clue what i'm going to create with them.
right now i just want them to sit there & look pretty.

what would yall make with a stack of simply sweet fat quarters???
help a girl out.


{{my sponsors rock!!! yall should check out mainely quilts of love.}}

LOVE these fabrics!

Jackie said...

Those are just beautiful and summery! For the time being I think that I would just fondle them.

Sherri said...

Yay for you! I think I'd look at them for awhile too...

Diane said...

I know of this great pinwheel quilt along you could use these for!

Denise :) said...

So pretty, so light & breezy! Almost makes me forget they're calling for more snow . . . perhaps if I look at the picture long enough . . . LOL! :) Enjoy; I know you'll come up with some wonderful and quilty use for them!

mandylifeboats said...

karenfae said...

I laughed out loud for this post!

(and am still laughing!)

My cart is ridiculously full right now. I'm deciding what to buy with my coupon! (20% off 'til tomorrow!)

too funny. :)

Jodie said...

I think a Brick Pattern would be a good way to show of the fabrics. do like 4x 7 1/2 inch bricks, with every other row having 4x4 on the ends, I am doing one now and I am loving it.

I have a counted cross stitch sampler that my mom did commemorating my daughter's birth 24 years ago. It's been sitting in a frame on the wall all that time, and I've decided that I'm going to incorporate all my counted cross stitch pieces into quilts. I think this Simply Sweet line would look adorable done up into a quilt with my cross stitch. I've already done one quilt this way, which was a Halloween quilt. It was my very first quilt, and you can check it out on my blog.

Sherry said...

I LOVE this fabric! Bad Rachel for tempting me to go buy more fabric...LOL I'd have to drool over it for awhile too.

Mary said...

I love these! I could buy fat quarters all day long. (And other cuts too, of course!) Fabric shopping on the internet is so dangerous!!!! I love this picture - makes the fabric look even yummier :-) You and Camille always have such gorgeous photos and are inspiring me to improve my photography.

jaybird said...

ohh yummy!! i'd just stare at them for a while...

jabeybaby said...

That really is a happy stack of fabrics! I think they would great in any quilt!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh my goodness, I would just play with them for awhile!! or pinwheels, I love pinwheels!!

Chris said...

I KNOW!!!! These caught my eye over at Camille's blog and I can't get them off my mind! :) Not sure what to do..maybe use it for a new baby quilt?! :)BYW Rachel..I am really enjoying the quilt along! Thanks for putting it together!

Cara said...

Pinwheels!! LOL or any of Quilt Soup's or Lizze B Cr8tive patterns, something big and fun.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

That is one pretty pile of fabric! Quite scrumptious, in fact! YUM! I'm just about to introduce my very first pattern for sale, and it would be so pretty done up in these fabrics. All you need is 30 charms and a little piece for the background...maybe a length of jumbo ric rac too! Hmmmm, I might have to go shopping!

Lexilooo said...

so pretty! I'd make table runners and pot holders, to brighten up my little kitchen!

kimland said...

I am SOOO with you!!! My bundle arrived on Saturday. I also searched and found the sister fabric to this line, "Bubble Gum Basics." I had to import it from Canada! I can hardly wait until I have them all in my posession!!! Greedy Girl but, this fabric soo screamed Spring/Summer to me and I so going to be ready!

KarrieLyne said...

I have been drooling over this fabric ever since I saw it posted over at QuiltSoup. Then I saw Camille post about it and now you.

I know exactly what you can do with it. You can make ME a quilt...LOL. J/K.

I can't wait to see what you do with it :)

Jen said...

I'd make a Starflower quilt with them! They are so "Spring-y", the "starflower just seems to fit them! I'm sure what ever you create will be beautiful!

Thimbleanna said...

They're gorgeous Rachel! Given the circumstances, I'm thinking they're screaming to be a baby quilt!!!

SewCalGal said...

Beautiful fabrics. Of course, everything I always see at the Fat Quarter Shop is always yummy. I'm sure what ever you create with this will be refreshing. Can't wait to see it!

They are wonderful aren't they Rachel? I got all the reds and all the aqua's and I just like having them sit here and look pretty. I think a baby quilt will be perfect for your stack!

Mom on the Move! said...

I don't know what to do with my stack of wonder fat quarters but I do know my daughter quizzes me about it everytime I start a new project. So, I can't wait to see what you make with yours.

Little Miss Shabby said...

Oh, you don't have to tell me twice--they are fab! I, too, loved seeing them on Camille's blog. I love the Jelly Girl quilt pattern--I think something like that would be amazing.

9patchnurse said...

OMG Rachel!! I just got 17 yards of fabric for my birthday and you make me want to get more. Those are Gorgeous and so fresh and cheerful. I would make a ticker tape quilt with a white background.

nifty table runner

Susan said...

Oh, I can see a couple of very cute little dresses for a granddaughter. Mixing and matching the colors and prints. A bonnet with a wide brim to shade her face from the sun. Running and playing in the long green grass.
Then I remember I have only one grandson, so far.

Purple Quilter Queen said...

Yum-O Rach! Love those colors. Puts a spring in your step after tons of snow, huh? Have fun! Jenn

Anne D said...

I love that I am not the only one who adds things to the cart that I love and then have to cull it when I actually order. I would use them for the pinwheel sampler quilt a long but that probably doesn't help.

kimmie's quilt's said...

GORGOUS!! My husband once made fun of me for falling asleep with a bunch of fat quarters in my arms lol! but i think i would make a baby quilt with them they are just such happy colors!

Elena said...

omg, gor-ge-ous!!! I'm all about bright Spring colors, so these are perfect for me! Would you mind terribly to link to which fabrics these are? I can't find them easily on the shop, and would love to make my very first pinwheel quilt with them. Thanks!

Dresden Quilter said...

I love this fabric. I know whatever you make is going to be fabulous.

Wendy said...

I love those fabrics. I have to suggest this to you: http://ankastreasures.wordpress.com/2010/02/26/happy-friday/

I have this one on my To-Do list myself.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Sinta Renee said...

Of course any one of Barbara's patterns at Quilt Soup would be wonderful. But I'm thinking Red Velvet Cake by Thimble Blossoms or a sweet Dresden pattern. I love the fabrics... got a small stack, that doesn't compare to yours.
P.S. go see what PKM is making with hers...

Mistea said...

Lovely bright colours like those just need to be out there - some nice new accessories - a purse, tote, cute little holders for your shades and phone etc. I'd want to be seeing it everyday. Enjoy

eamylove said...

Since it's all Camille's fault anyway...I can really see those in "Wild Thing." In fact, that's what I want to do with my Bubblegum Basics f/q's and I'm not even having a baby!

Anonymous said...

i think it would make a cute pinwheel quilt or spring banner or table runner. have fun turning it into something!

biggirllittlegirl said...

I love that you buy fabrics before you know what you're going to do with them! I always feel so strange when people talk about buying specific fabrics for specific projects. I find that overwhelming and tend to just buy loads of whatever I like when I see it!
