I can hardly stand it!

Today was an awesome mail day.  I found a sale on fabric I need for my Rambling Rose quilt ...so we skimped a bit on the food budget so I could order it before it sold out.  The result is what you see above...along with the jelly roll I already got for my birthday.
 
The fabric on the far right is what I'll use as the backing for the quilt.  I've always loved little ditsy dots & this one even has little medallions with rosebuds.  The others will be used as borders & binding...we'll see how it all works out once the Jelly Roll Race part of the quilt is done. 
 
Then...after I sold a bit in my Etsy shop...I ordered some fabric for my Somerset quilt, too.
 
They didn't have as much Somerset yardage that I liked on sale...and I'd like one or two more prints to give me options here.  I've got to decide which of the many colors in this collection will work best for me.  It might have to be one with the ivory background...we'll see.
 
The orangey red floral will most likely be the binding...and the green with more ditsy dots will be the quilt backing.  I'm gonna be a busy girl here soon.  Of course I also have to finish a quilt for my sweetie Phil...I'll share pix of that one in progress soon.  Right now I have to go play with my new toys!!!  Gotta love a bunch of new fabric...it sure brightens up a gloomy cold Tuesday.
