Saturday Stash -- I Won!

 My friend Deb says I win everything.  Well, maybe not everything -- but I won this:

The Cocoon Fat Quarter Bundle from Maureen Cracknell Handmade's giveaway!  I even won the colorway I like best, "Moth."

Which is actually kind of funny, because Colorado has been inundated with an unusually high number of Miller Moths this year.  Miller Moths are harmless, but annoying.  I've been awakened several night lately by the sound of them bouncing against the window, attracted by the light of the moon!

Even so, isn't this fabric stunning?  The giveaway was sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop, where I bought extra yardage of the Coral Liv  for the border of whatever I decide to make with this wonderful collection.

I interrupted packing for my trip to the Home Machine Quilting Show to play with my prize, selecting some of Robert Kaufman's Quilters Linens to go with.

I purchased the Quilters Linen from my favorite etsy shop, Fresh-Squeezed Fabrics.

The khaki fabric in the back is Moda Bella Solids, the color is Cocoa.   I can't remember where I bought it -- on sale, though!

Any ideas what I should make with these lovelies?  I'm thinking maybe the Brioche and Baguette pattern from Modern Quilt Relish, it would really show off the large print.

Thank you, Maureen and Fat Quarter Shop!
