Oh yes I did!


200 Kona solid fat quarters.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!

This really was my present to myself teehee..


p.s. there's a bit of a story behind this purchase. While in FL I saw both boxes in a local quilt shop. I asked the price. I about fell on the floor when they said $2.75 a fat quarter (that tranlates to $11 a yard!). I came home and I purchased these from the Fat Quarter Shop with a 20% coupon and free shipping. $2.75 a fat quarter or $1.35 a fat quarter? hmm...I'll take $1.35 thank you.

OMG! That is so awesome. I wouldn't be able to use any though, for fear of disrupting the colour gradation. I would just look at it every day and know everything was still right with the world. *Sigh*
