Fat Quarters for Fat Tuesday!

i know, i know, it's friday, but it was a perfect heading. anyway, i mailed mine out on tuesday as part of a FQ swap with some gals from mormonchic. participants swapped 2 fat quarters and chocolate. isn't the chocolate just the perfect touch? i don't quilt, but i DO use FQs as purse linings for crocheted purses, and i have a feeling sewing is in my future.

here are the fabrics and goodies i received: (she was nice enough to include some suckers for the kiddies -- thanks, dawn!)

first of all, i LOVE LOVE LOVE the fabrics! i confess, i saw the polka dots at my local quilt shop and fell in love with it. really it's uncanny how well she got into my head! the browns, aqua, and tangerine colors are really jiving with me right now, i LOVE them, and actually sent fabrics in the same colors off to my partner! did i mention i LOVE them? Thank-you! i think the brown fabric calls for an aqua bag with tangerine ribbon or maybe even a silk blossom....the dots will be beautiful lining a brown bag. i'm wanting to branch out in my crochet endeavors also, so maybe i can come up with another fun way to utilize fabric in my work...appliques? maybe. but i need to think on it and perhaps surf for inspiration.
