Japanese Import Charm Swap

I have a confession to make.  I am getting addicted to swapping.  Whether it be quilt blocks, charm squares, Kona solids . . . count me in.

You know that sentence was all just going to be a lead-in to introduce the latest swap I've entered, don't you?  ;)

Gen X Quilters

AnneMarie hooked me again . . . after her Kona Your World swap, she decided to run a Japanese Imports Fabric swap, and I couldn't stop myself from entering.  We're exchanging charm squares this round . . . Japanese fabrics can get pricey so doing a fat quarter swap might not be as doable.  After many many months of mooning over her offerings, I decided to FINALLY patronize JoJoEbi (of A Bit of This A Bit of That fame) and throw a bit of money towards the Japanese economy.

Here's what I got in the mail yesterday:
Nemophila by Oharayaseni Pears and Apples Japanese fabric

It's called Nemophila by Oharayaseni . . . cute pears, apples, strawberries, butterflies . . . what can I say?  It did it for me.  Plus it will be a small enough print to "work" for charm squares.

I'm not gonna lie . . . now that it's here I'm really kind of sad that I have to cut into it!  But . . . there are so many cute fabrics waiting for me on the other side.  Take a peek at all the swap goodies in the pool in our Flickr group.

Ha ha! Hooked you again!! :) You know I just secretly wanted my own little charm pack of Japanese Imports - and managed to convince 28 other people they needed one too?!?! LOVE this print. I am REALLY looking forward to sending out the goodies from this swap. Such fun!
