Great Mail Day Monday!

Received my 2015 Hoffman Challenge fabrics!  Ordered Friday from Quilt Kits on line.  Great service, lovely people to work with and the kit they put together is exactly what I would have selected-the challenge fabric and all the coordinates (which I really like!  Especially the blenders on the top). They definitely look different in person!  Now What?!?!?!?  Very gypsy looking especially with those gold coins.  Off to the sketch pad to stare at blank paper for awhile.
