Farm Fresh (Gingiber) by Moda Fabrics

Here is where I started for my fabrics. I bought a layer cake, I think from Fat Quarter Shop*. After I looked at the pattern I decided to add some yardage.

I found this great set of prints at In Stitches Quilt Shop in Wolmesdorf, PA. It is called Folk Art Fantasy by Benartex.

I am mostly using the white on left as a background, but the chicken scratch fabric may go in the center block (depending on the construction).  Anyway, I think now have plenty of fabric and am anxious to start cutting.

I made a spreadsheet with my fabrics. I’ll post a mac/pc version on the facebook group where you can add your own fabrics in [working on this with Sherry]. Don’t forget to check out the other hosts, too.  

So, let’s connect on Facebook with updates and see you September 4 with Month 1 Blocks!
