Of course, the fabric came in………..by the armfuls. I do love shopping for it. I had reasons this time too.
This brilliant pink is for the little quilt I made for Julia who lives down the road. She will be 2 on October 13th. It will be bound with green. Her mommy has seen it. This is our quilt. Remember I made it from two layer cakes I had sitting around? I used a tutorial from Jenny at the Missouri Star Quilt company and if you ask me which one……………I confess………..I can’t remember. The backing is perfect for it. Sheer luck. I had two left over blocks with me and Karl and I hunted and hunted for what we wanted.
So what do you do when you find buttons you love? You buy fabric to go with them, right? This is for a bag similar to the one I made for our holidays. It will be a bit “classier” as I bought batiks that just shouted at me………….buy me, buy me!
Last but not least, I found these black and whites. I’ve decided I’m going to make a neutrals quilt from the book called Spotlight on Neutrals. I will need more, I’m sure, but bit by bit I’ll pick them up along with the tone on tone tans and someday I’ll be set to go. I’m thinking this would be a perfect quilt for a grand to have.
My giggle for the day. On one of my toolbars at the top of the page is a huge sun with the temperature. I just looked at it and it says 67*................that's what age I turned yesterday. Even the weather is celebrating with me. LOL
