Retro, Modern or Traditional ...

On one hand...

                                                  Joy of Life by Hoffman Fabric

What an aptly named fabric!  It just swirls and curls with enthusiasm.

Sweet flowers by Hoffman are seen above and below with Joy of Life.

It's a gorgeous collection of fabric.  It's very mod with 1960 swirls yet so modern with the beautiful rich colours. 

On the other hand...

                In stock yardage of 'Sweet Pea' a Kansas Troubles Quilters fabric by Moda

                      Also in stock, jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm square pre-packs

The pre- packs allow you to have a small 'dab' of all the fabric in the line.

For a smaller project, consider the charm pack.  

Here,  12 charm squares (5" squares) are laid out with 3 high & 4 long.   It would make a nice placemat with a coordinating fabric on the back and a different one for a binding.  One charm pack would make a maximum of 3 placemats with 4 of the 5" squares left over.  Or look at making 2 placemats , and with the remaining 16 squares, a table runner... Lots of possibilities and fun with a charm pack for $12.95.
