Fun Little Tidbits

I have a few fun things that I wanted to share with you today, so this is going to be just a little bit random and bouncy but it is all good Happy Quilting goodness ;)

First off, I want to give a huge thank you for you all for your wonderful comments on my planning for a Ruby Jubilee quilt ;)  I am happy to say that I finally made a decision.  I am going to do the red background and the white chain :)  Yippee!!!  I am using wonderful Grunge fabrics that arrived the other day and now I just can't wait to cut into them.  So pretty!!  And speaking of wonderfully fun things, oh my goodness, I just love the Moda Match Maker, especially my Grunge one!!!  It made choosing the red and white I wanted so much easier.  I knew exactly the tone, what color grunge was added to it, ect. ect.   Perfect!!!  Don't know how I ever got by without it!!  (Fat Quarter Shop  and Green Fairy Quilts carry them, just fyi :)

Second, Kimberly made kits of my Sugar Pop N Change Mini that I posted at the Moda Bake Shop in December!!!   So if you loved the mini and want to make one just like mine, or similar to mine but in green or blue, pop on over to Kimberly's Fabric Stash and get yourself a kit.  EEEkkk, I just love making Mini's ;)

And finally, My good friend Amy posted about these fabulous spreadsheets that her friends Holly and Dave of Stately Type made up.  I knew right away that they would be perfect for me.  I absolutely love checking things of "to do" lists, but the ability to check off each step of a quilt on a "to-do" list, fabulous!!!   I instantly went and grabbed a set, printed it off, and hung it on my desk by my machine.  They are downloadable and so fun and so very affordable!!!  There is also a Fabric Stash Inventory sheet that I will admit I am afraid to fill out, and a WIP to Finish one, but I added all my WIP's to my Quilts to Make in 2016, because I want to get them all done ;)     So anyhow, if you happen to like checking off lists as well, I highly recommend you pop on over and check out this trio of spreadsheets.  They really are amazing and I already have found myself squeezing in a binding or doing a little basting, just so I can check it off the list. Love it!!

And that is my fun little random tidbits for the day.  I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day ;)
