what's even better than a shopping trip for fabric? FREE FABRIC! i won these lovely fabrics from the lovely Jona at Fabritopia recently--she was holding tons of giveaways of some the loot she got from Quilt Market. that's where the Golden Books fabric is from, and the cherry panels are from her shop. she was sweet enough to include the cherry panels because she thought she was late in sending out the prize--but honestly, being generous to hold a giveaway is quite enough. but i would never say no to more fabric :-)

here's a close-up of the Little Golden Books fabric--isn't it cute?! i'm planning on making it (2 fat quarters) into a simple tote bag (here's the tutorial) (this is probably the easiest tutorial out there for tote bags--i made like 50 of them 2 Christmases ago as gifts for everyone!) for the kids' library books this summer (make sure you sign up your kids for Summer Reading Clubs at the local library!)

when i read that i had won the giveaway on Jona's blog, my heart skipped a beat! i had to go back into her comments to make sure it was me who won--though gotta say there aren't many "Dorothy's" out there! i've never won anything before and good chance this will be the last time :-)

Jona's blog is a lot of fun to read--she's not really a quilter though she's recently started, she does more seamstressing things--but more importantly, she loves fabric! and of course, it's fun to read her perspective as a small business owner--she runs Fabritopia out of her home. check out her blog & store--she's having some great sales right now!
