Back to Quilting
This is what else DH gave to me for Christmas. A Fat quarter bundle. Actually 2 fat quarter bundles but I started with this one. He Said Nancy from Bearly Quilting was very impressed when he walked in 2 days before Christmas and confidently stated "I would like to get my wife a gift, I think a selection of coordinating fat quarters would be nice."
I was very excited to get started so I made this on Christmas day. The kids were busy playing with their gifts and DH watching football and cooking it was a perfect day. This pattern and tutorial came from CrazyMomQuilts and boy was I inspired. She calls it Flea Market Fancy. I plan on quilting it this AM. So watch for completed photographs.
DD#2 up to something.....Cute though.
Here is my fabric selection for Bonnie Hunter's new mystery at Quiltville.com that starts TOMORROW! She is calling it Double Delight. I have done all her mysteries and love every one. SIL Kristi, You should try this one. The directions are always really good and a beginner can easily make it. There is also a fantastic chat group associated with Quiltville.You can join here.
While on our long weekend away DH took me to 3 LQSs. I had to buy something form every one. I have 2 yards of Cheddar and 3 yards of indigo a selection of repro FQs. I knew that didn't want to do a repro quilt but it seemed that was all the indigo I could find. Until....I visited the last one (of course) and bought the end of the bolt for 25% off.
Here is my bounty.
