Here is an artsy picture of the bundle I chose:
Oh, they look so pretty hanging there. Here's a more sober picture of the bundle, along with fabric names:

When I was choosing fabric for this bundle, I was thinking mainly of fall flowers. Most people think of flowers as a spring thing, and I do love spring flowers, but fall has a beauty all its own. Goldenrod, asters, chrysanthemums, some roses and lilies, astilbes, and Russian sage are just of few of the fall bloomers that add so much to the season. There are no dainty springtime pinks or yellows here, but lots of deep saturated colors-- oranges, purples, deep reds, deep greens, and deep yellows.
I've started using the bundle to make some flower blocks for a fall flowers quilt, though I haven't made as much progress as I'd hoped:
|Flower blocks are adapted from the Intricate Stitches project.|
I'm seriously hoping this quilt will be finished sometime this fall, but there are some projects in line ahead of it, too. But hope springs eternal!
If you're not into flowers, this bundle is pretty versatile as a base for other projects, since it combines well with other colors. You could go really warm and put it with some more oranges and yellows:
Or go another direction with pinks and reds, and maybe a few purples:
Or try a little cooler with some blues and greens:
It even looks really good with last month's blogger bundle:
For my project, I chose to add a green and a couple of the fabrics from last month. I might add another purple, too, to balance the one already in the bundle.
This giveaway is now closed! Thanks to all, and congratulations to Deb, who won the bundle.
