Have I Told You Lately That I Love....

ahhh...you thought I was gonna say "You!" (you know, like the song....)But what I was going to say was Have I told you lately that I love Kansas Troubles fabrics?  I got hooked on them when I started using them for my Patriots in Patchwork blocks.  When Esther came out with Heart's Desire...I decided to use them again.  I just received an order of fat halves of their Wrapped in Paisley line (from last year) this afternoon. 

Most of their fabrics are quite dark in tone, so I ordered some of the "lighter" colors that were available in this line.  I have decided to use the one with the little swirl for the background on my outside borders for Heart's Desire.  I cut out a few of the scalloped borders in the black floral (another Kansas Troubles fabric) I intend to use.  These borders will have those baskets I mentioned previously in the corners.  Here's a peek...again not stitched together yet, just laid out to see how I like it.
