Playing with Tonya's letters

Wow.... thanks to Tonya for had shared those beautiful letters, this afternoon I enjoyed to play with and did my name :-)


Ok, I do have enought fabric... Yesterday eve I sorted all the large pieces, I do a lot of mess as you can see in the picture.

I can't imagine how much fabric I find into the closet! Some fabric are from 1997 to 2001 collection, and I still love them. I realized that those dated quilt cotton was better than other I bought recently. Fabric as "The Kessler collection from Andover" fabric were very soft and don't slip... The calicos designs were beautiful. So, I need to ask to you if you buy fabric from Sales on the net, each about $3.99 or if this don't worth... Where to find quality and cheap fabric? Is it really possible? I'm not so sure now....

I ordered those but at the touch seems they slip and even if it is 100% cotton, seems it isn't. I have to wash them and see what happens?
