And a little something(s) for me

It's all very well to give away books and thread and scrap packs and fat quarter stacks and Baby Go Cutters but what about a little something for me?  So I treated myself to a Happiness FQ stack and two green half yards of Happy Mochi Yum Yum from Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop.  It came quick quick quick and beautifully packaged.  I wonder what I should make with it.  Any thoughts?

  1. It's lovely isn't it?? Don't know what you could make though? A quilt maybe!!!!

  2. These prints look very girly, so I'd make a baby girl quilt and bind it in blue. Since you don't like using other's pattern, why not design one with these fabrics in mind.

  4. Hmmmm - I know a circular mini quilt for me because you don't want this treating yourself thing to go to your head now do you? ;-) Ok maybe you do!

  5. I'm guessing since you posted that question about an hour ago that it's too late and you've made something already x

  6. I bought a half-yard of all the tonals, they will make a great print for bee blocks. The prints are great!

  7. Hmm..do you like "other" projects? How about an apron with one of your signature many-colored blocks on the green background?
    Add a little black-with-small-white-polka-dots fabric and anything would be awesome!

  9. Flying blind has probably got that right. On the off chance that you are mired in indecision, how about firing up the Go! And making a couple of chubby dresden pillows each with a different green background? You could quilt them with some of that fab thread you've got lying about!

  10. You are making me want to pull the trigger on happy mochi yum yum even more now. That stack looks fantastic! Can't wait to see what you decide!

  14. The colours are brill but if you are making something for yourself it should be less in the line of baby quilt or apron (i know how much you LOVE to cook) and more in the line or quilted pillow for reading a good book, or quilted drip mat for that cool glass of champagne.

  18. Two thumbs up, you deserve it! I love your fabric choices, both of them!

  19. The only thing that is stopping me from ordering a heap of this fabric is that there is not one single print that I don't like! I'd have to have a half yard each of all of it. Personally, I'm seeing union jacks, but you might be sick of them? Otherwise I'm seeing something with circles or half circles...
