Whoops, I think I'm going the wrong way!  A shopping trip to the near city and visits to a couple of fabric stores--and 8.88 yards found its way into my home.  I found a medium peach fabric for my April quilt; it will be the double labyrinth pattern and these are my other two fabrics:

The floral fabric was purchased in 2008 at $1.50/yard.  I also bought the coordinating fabric at the same price--similar except the flowers are much larger--and will use it for the backing.  This will be queen-sized and will be for our bed.  I got 3 yards of the darker peach--it's difficult to match the hues in older fabric!  I did get the fabrics ironed and made a handful of the HSTs.  Can't wait to get back down to my quilting room!


Then I had pulled another fabric from my stash and decided to make a second quilt with the same pattern.  (I've made labyrinth quilts for QOVs, but none for myself.). I purchased the blue vine fabric and the solid violet fabric to go with the floral on black that I pulled from stash; I wasn't really happy with the violet but it was the only thing I could find that matched the color in the floral fabric.  

Today we went to the nearby small town and I brought my fabric to see if I could find something that would work better--and was successful!  (The colors in the floral fabric are a little off--they're much truer as shown in the first photo.)

The fabric on the very bottom will be background fabric and backing--it came from stash.  I'm fighting an upper respiratory infection so I'm "benched" until I feel better.  Just attending Holy Week services is stretching me to my limit.  I can't wait to see how these two quilts turn out!  Only half a month to finish the April quilt!
