I just arrived home today from a trip to Minnesota to visit my bestie Brooke.  One of these trip always includes a day trip to Gruber's Quilt Store.  It is such a treat as they have one of the largest selections of fabric to tempt one.  
 I picked up these batiks for an appliqué project I have in mind.  
One of these white fabrics will be the background for some flowers.  I love these new word and pictorial prints.  
These two just grabbed me and refused to let me go without bringing them home.  Now to figure out a project for them.  Any ideas out there?
Last rock fabric for a workshop I am taking next week.  This was what I came for in the first place, but one can get way laid along the way with other tempting treats.
Brooke and I also worked on a number of projects while I was there and I give you a sneak peek on Friday.  
I am linking up to show off my spending spree.
