Sorry this picture is a little blurry, but we were working so fast it was hard to get a good picture :*D
My biggest achievement was getting my Girls Just Want to Have Fun quilt top completely finished!!!
WooHoo!!!! I have to admit, this one was NOT fun for me, especially by the time I was getting close to the end. But it is a beautiful quilt and I'm really glad I made it. This was a class I took last year at Runaway Retreat. One year in the making :*) Thanks again Joanne for sharing your 30's scraps =^..^=
Other than the big finish of GJWTHF, I also managed to catch up on my Piecemakers Mystery Quilt. This was a good deal for me because I had only cut out the fabrics and was 3 clues behind! I also got a little work done on the August Calendar Quilt, but not a lot. These are my socks at the end of the day on Wednesday..... LOL!!!!!
Would you say the floors were a little dirty? I finally had to give up trying to keep my quilt off the floor when ironing it and trust that it will all come out in the wash :*)
I had to share this cute little souvenir I brought home with me....a totally adorable turtle pin cushion!!!
Isn't she just the cutest little thing????!!!!
I've decided I'm going to have to add a few little blingy things to mine too. Once we found out these were available at the vendor, there was a huge rush to get them and options were limited by the time I got there. I love her bright colors, but it will be fun to see what I can find to bling her out a little :*D
We spent all day Tuesday quilt shop hopping - what a fun day!!! I couldn't have picked out any more fun people to spend a day with :*) I wish I had gotten a picture of all of us together. It did cut down on our sewing time, but we had a wonderful time and I added quite a few fabrics to the stash :*) I'll just share some of the eye candy now and let the fabrics speak for themselves with a few captions.....
|I plan to make a new Stitchery Keeper out of these cute fabrics! They are from a line called McCall's. I actually got these at Whittle's on our ride home :*)|
|The dots on the left are for my In Flight Butterflies blocks, and the yellows are for Hawaii Sunset|
|I added these solids for a quilt I hope to start soon.....|
|I absolutely love this lime green print! It was on sale so I grabbed a couple of yards :*)|
|These pinks are for Hawaii Sunset. I also got some poison greens but they just didn't photograph well. I think I have all I need now to get busy on this awesome quilt!|
|These one-yard cuts were in a basket marked $3.00!!! Can't pass that up - no way!!! I got a few others too :*)|
|These are the kit fabrics, binding fabric on the far right. I'm in love with that aqua with the big white dots!!!|
