Lookie what came in the mail:
It goes perfectly with a little giftie that I got a couple days ago:
THANKS again Karen. Who may be the one to blame for me knowing about this line to begin with... :o)
If anyone wonders why I really like this line - besides the fact that it is on my sofa & looks great?
This one still needs about 1 row of quilting...
What do I plan on doing with 5 charm packs?
Thanks to the wonderful AmandaJean I am going to make a twin/double sized Stacked Coins quilt. "French Francs" (I know, clever.) You see she was featured on Moda Bake Shop with this pattern for a crib sized quilt. She took the time out of her busy schedule to answer my e-mail on how much fabric (how many charm packs) do I need?* THANKS again. I will be adding in some of those fabrics from my giftie & I may try to add in some Taupes as well.
Oh & thanks to Mr. Calico Cat who authorized the purchase. (Can I get some red for the binding? I forgot about that...) The solid "Roche" will be the sashing & the print will be the backing.
When it is quilted & bound, we will be saying Buh Bye Kaffe make room for the General! (I will hang it above my sofa.)
* A layer cake + a charm pack could have worked, but there is less cutting (for my pattern) with charm packs & I think that 5 charm packs ended up being a tad bit less expensive...
