WOW! Color Overload

Today I received a delicious package in the mail.  Inside was a fat quarter bundle of Eat Your Fruits and Veggies Batiks by Pat Sloan.  I am in color overload - no make that color heaven!   These colors are rich and vibrant and they are batiks which I love!  I mean just look at these:
There is a rainbow of delights in this bundle.   

 Now you may see a GREEN ink pen laying on top of the bundle.  If you look closely you will see the name on it: Green Fairy Quilts.  This is a blog (and a business) run by Clint and Judi Madsen.  Judi is an extraordinary longarm quilting artist.  I follow her blog just so I can see her amazing work.  Of course the Green Fairy Quilts Shop is a great place to buy fabric too.  They have great prices on pre-cuts of fabric.   I recommend getting on the email list so you know what is going on sale.
So anyway, I have to confess that when Judi posted Giveaway Time, I entered.  (are you surprised?)  She asked that we list "three favorite items in the store."   Of course I started in the Fat Quarter Bundle section (and found three favorites there.)  I never dreamed that I would actually get a FQ bundle. I saw later that there were 328 comments so I wasn't expecting to win anything. All I can say is HOORAY!!!  the question is: Can I cut into this lovely stuff - or will I just sit and admire the lovely colors?  I am sure I will admire it for a little while. LOL.  But it will be used.

Thanks so much Judi and Clint,  you made my week!

Congratulations Gene- I am sure you will have fun creating something beautiful with it. It truly is filled with such rich colors- a yummy bundle.
I do receive the Green Fairy's newsletter- they do such good work overseas - a fun website with pretty reasonable prices.
