I'd like to share a secret.....

I don't know about the rest of you but when I see the new fabric lines that haven't yet been released...I get a little giddy. Your mind bursts with ideas and possible quilts and projects that you could make.
But darn we HAVE to wait like 6 months for the fabric.
It dawned on me while I was searching ebay for Blythe doll auctions, that there may be an ebay seller that received the new lines ahead of time.
 I have noticed that Moda has been releasing select numbers of pre-cuts in an online sample spree so to speak.
 I searched ebay and low and behold. There they were.
All the lines I have been drooling over.
Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater

Flurry by Kate Spain

Ready, Set, Snow by Me and My Sister
Grand Finale by Sandy Gervais

and Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree.

I was awe struck, ALL buy it now.
I put several cuts in my watch list. Narrowed it down.
And narrowed it down again.
Finally placed my "order".
Here's what I found: Price was awesome....31.95 for a jelly roll!
Now I know shipping gets you...
but this seller combined my shipping ($8.50 shipped 6 items) and it arrived in 3 days.
Totally worth it.
I just wanted to share this with anyone that might be interested in the new lines at a reasonable price.

Here's my haul....
2 layer cakes,
4 charm packs....
try to igore that they are thrown all over my bed with other basic jelly rolls LOL.
My point is, if you are looking for some of the newest precuts....check ebay HERE.

Wow! We have similar taste in fabric, because everything you showed us is something I'm drooling over. I bought a Strawberry Fields Jelly Roll last week--oh it is so so pretty!

Enjoy your lovely goodies!

Good deals and lots of beautiful fabrics.
I like to search ebay every so often, sometimes you get lucky and find bargains no one else noticed;)

I see a Lil Twister. I have one but I haven't used it yet. I am interested in seeing how you use yours. I didn't get the book, but from the enclosed instructions it looks pretty straight forward.

I am so with you on this one! I get incredibly excited about the new fabric lines and if I can actually get my hands on them before they are released I am over the moon! You got some great things!

Such a clever search! Happy you (((o:
Don't worry about the shipping costs. I have to pay for abroad and with all those lovely lovely item you got, I would probably have to pay about $ 35. Still cheaper than buying fabrics in Europe!
Have a lovely weekend.
