New Fabric!

So I was out yesterday running errands. While I was out in the nearest city with a mall, I thought I would stop by the JoAnn's to see if they had any fabric that I just really needed. Well, turns out, they were having a huge sale on fat quarters!! YAY! .99 for 1 fat quarter. So needless to say I thought I should take advantage and get some that I liked.
I really liked the leave prints on this and the color is just so bright and cheerful. Then I started to think about the quilt-along I mentioned in my last post. So I picked up some fat quarters for that too! This is the whole lot:
The top print is so bright. The background color is lime green, one of our favorite colors. The bottom has pretty aqua swirl pattern.This top print is very unique. It has some yellows ans whites in it. I just liked it. The bottom is just some squares in squares. Pretty colors.This top print has a very unique swirl print with a dark and lighter green. The bottom one is my favorite of this bunch. I'm not sure why, I just loved the bright contrast and the style of the flowers.So what do you think? Will they all look ok together, or should I add another color to them?

I JUST bought my first ever sewing machine, and am thinking of doing quilting too! I love the patterns you selected! Can't wait to see your final creation...

Congrats on top 10 at SITS, too!

Hi! Just a fellow SITStah leaving a comment- I LOVE fabric! I go to Joann's every sunday (it's been a tradition of mine since I moved into my new house and there's a Joanns right down the road) I'm addicted, glad to see I'm not the only one with fabric collections! Have a great night!
