Burned a hole in my pocket

Last week Judy was kind enough to choose the cake recipe I submitted when she was looking a recipe for Vince's birthday cake. I won a gift certificate for $59.09 to The Fat Quarter Shop!

Judy announced the winner on Thursday morning and I managed not to spend the gift certificate until at least 8 p.m. that evening. I would have spent it sooner but there was so much beautiful fabric to choose from, I couldn't narrow it down!

I finally came to some decisions. The picture above is of the SWANKY charm pack by Chez Moi for Moda. So bright and cheerful.

The four pink fabrics all have the Eiffel Tower on them and will eventually make their way into Madeleine's Paris quilt. The others were just pretty browns and greens that I couldn't resist.

Thank you again, Judy! I am glad your family enjoyed the cake!

Oh - did I share our plans for spring break next week? My brother-in-law and his family live in DC and we are going to spend the week with them! And do you know what is between Auburn Alabama and Washington DC? Mary Jo's Fabrics in Gastonia North Carolina. Last time we went to DC I remember seeing it from the interstate - this time we WILL be stopping! I had better start taking my self-control pills today!

Oh, self-control is overrated when it comes to fabric. :)
The picture of your fabric scores is making my mouth water... esp. those brown birds!
