I Adore-a Flora!

I started off October with a win…a HUGE win!!   L & J Blog was part of the Moda Country Fair Blog Hop…Lauren and Jessi Jung gave away two Fat Quarter bundles of their new fabric line called Flora to two lucky recipients…and one of those recipients was ME!!  (Insert Happy Dance here!!) 

Well my little bundle arrived in yesterday’s mail!  It’s no exaggeration to say that this fabric took my breathe away!!  Gorgeous does NOT do it justice!! 

Just LOOK at Flora…I am in LOVE!!!

P1150887Gorgeous…little prints…of yummy colours!! 

P1150882 P1150883 

And look… Lauren and Jessi Jung’s card matches the fabric…SEW creative!!

 P1150885  What to make?…What to make?  Maybe a new tablecloth…the one that is on my table now is sure looking old and faded……hmmmm…. One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be VERY difficult to cut this fabric up…it’s just too darn pretty!!

Would you believe that the fabric designers, Lauren and Jessi, are a mother and daughter team who have a website where they sell their own fabric, labels…and patterns…many of which are FREE!  You can check it out HERE!!

Thank you SEW much Lauren and Jessi!! I adore-a Flora.. and you can be sure that I will be putting it to good use!! 

Have a Super Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P

What gorgeous fabric! I L-O-V-E it! It would be so hard to cut this up. I would have to sit and look at it for a long time first. Happy Stitching lucky lady!!!!

Yay for you, you lucky ducky! This fabric is gorgeous. I think these ladies are such a fabulous design team, and I think their fabric should attract more attention that it seems to, because it is always so unique and interesting.

That fabric is beautiful, you are one lucky lady. I like that there is a lot of green in there, it really adds to the reds and blues. Enjoy.
