*** If you are looking for the Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway you will find it here :)
Sometimes I just sit in my little sewing room and stare at my fabric. I am hoping we all do that and I am not a little crazy for just enjoying looking at it. This week though, I have been staring at it hoping to come to some conclusions.
My month for the Sew Bee Create bee is June and so I need to start getting some packages ready to go in the mail. What's holding me up??
Do I want a Christmas block with my oh so my favorite Christmas line ever??? I have seen so many amazing quilts in Countdown to Christmas and I so want one. This might be the perfect time to break out this FQB.
But then I think, maybe I want a cool shabby chic block to make a nice throw blanket for myself with these amazing prints from Daisy Cottage. Don't you just love these beautiful tones??
I can't decide :) Which would you do?? And fabulous block suggestions for either?? I am assuming if I decide on a block that it would be easier to pick a bundle :)
I also pulled out my Heirloom scraps so I could whip up some pillow cases to match my finished Stars Quilt-A-Long quilt. More on Friday :)
And then I spent quite a while staring at fabric on-line trying to come to a decision on some new projects. Do you remember my Braided Irish Chain tutorial?? Well I have been asked to teach it at the beginning of next year (I am so excited, and a little nervous :) I have altered the tutorial a bit to make the Queen size version more of a square so it fits the queen bed a little better. I will also be teaching a King size version. Which means I need a Queen and King quilt to show. That won't take long right :)
I took advantage of Burgundy Buttons sale last week and finally decided on Hello Luscious with Moda Bella White for the background for the queen size quilt.
And for the king size quilt I went with Reunion with a Moda Bella Slate background.
ore of a square I have also been doing some major quilting this week. But won't be showing it for a few more weeks. You know the drill :)
On to the rundown, I am so glad I can keep track of everything hear. It is really helping me to stay on top of my projects (especially those with deadlines) and not let things fall through the cracks :)
