Fabrics Old & New

pieces of the fabrics I needed to use for the challenge

Here are the fabrics I had to use for my challenge quilt from my previous post. They were a bit dated, but I think I made them work. We could add as many of our own to the quilt which I did. The tan alligator print isn't in the top, but will be used for the label which I think was allowed in the rules.

I received this gorgeous package of prints called S'mores by Moda from Gina Halladay at Quilter's Buzz. Aren't they bright and happy fabrics? I will use them to make a quilt for Habitat in the near future. Thanks so much!
