Adding 3 More to the Mix :)

So remember on Monday when I posted about the 3 new projects I was starting . . . Well I might have already added 3 more to the mix ;)  What can I say, its just a stitching up a storm kind of start to the month, and I am so loving it!!!

First off, I got a reminder email from the lovely ladies at the Cedar Quilt Retreat that they would love to need the quilts I am teaching in January to hang at the annual Heritage Days Festival.  It just might have slipped my mind that the original The Village Square is currently on a cross country Irish Chain Quilts trunk show.   So ya, I need to make another one and it just bumped to the top of the list.   After much debate (so many amazing fabrics make it hard to choose) I decided to go with Sweetwater's Feed Company line for Moda.  I think it will give it an awesome Americana feel.  Time to get cutting on this one ;)

And second, I quick little project using some Heather Bailey True Colors.  I love how soft these prints are.  I have a vision of what it will look like in my head, and I am just hoping it turns out as cute and adorable as I see it in my mind.  I know, I am being a little cryptic, I will share more soon ;)

And finally, I was excited to get these two amazing Jelly Rolls of Modern Backgrounds Ink and Paper by Zen Chic for Moda in the mail.   Fat Quarter Shop has a new pattern coming soon and I am super happy to get to make one for the big release!!   And that Red is a Brushed Bella Solid Red.   I have never used a Brushed Moda Fabric before and I have to say, I am in love!!  It is so incredibly soft!!!   I can't wait to start stitching with it ;)

And those are the three new projects ;)  Okay, and I might also have one or two secret projects that I can't show, but that is it, I promise ;)  I know, I am a little bit crazy, but I just love it!!!  Looking forward to a super cutting, stitching, pressing, all kinds of fabric goodness kind of weekend!!!   So much fun!!!  

Have a Super Happy Quilting Weekend!!!!
