    I love Fat Quarter Shop! I love that they’ll send you emails when that new line you can’t wait to come out actually comes out and you can buy it! I’ve been eyeing the Santa’s Little Helpers line to make a cute, fun Christmas cuddly couch quilt. Combining Christmas and sock monkeys, how can you go wrong?

  93. Angela O. says:

    I’m in the Stashtacular Flickr group and have been really pondering which fabrics to swap. It’s harder than I thought it would be! I’m having lots of fun seeing everyone else’s stashes and creations. I’m also on “fabric shop restriction” so I’m not tempted to buy any this month. That’s hard too, but makes me realize how much great fabric I already have!

  94. Luci D. says:

    Sorbet Watermelon fabric would be my favorite!
