Some of you in other parts of the country are probably laughing at this paltry amount of snow. However, it was enough to delay most schools and close a good number of them. Western Washington is totally incapable of dealing with snow, especially when it's usually accompanied by ice. But, lucky for us, the temp was rising and the sun was predicted to make an appearance by afternoon. So three QB's set off to do our part for the economy. I can say that I did my part!
The neutrals on the left were purchased within my first 10 minutes at the show! 5 - 1 yard pieces plus one fat quarter. I have a couple quilts in mind that will be using those. The middle coffee stripe is going to be borders for a coffee themed quilt I'm planning as a gift. Then there are some more polka dots for a project I've been doing as a leaders & enders - photo below. Then there's this neat padded laptop case. Last but certainly not least, the Hip to be Square kit. Check out the wild fabrics in this one!
I don't know WHY this one kept calling my name. I tried to resisit it, but, as you can see, resistance was futile. Lime green is usually not one of "my colors" but I think it's been growing on me after working with so much green in my high school senior quilt.
Below is the beginning of my polka dot quilt leaders & enders quilt. What I'm not showing you is the huge stack of polka dot fabrics yet to be cut. I knew I should have stuck with that quilt the other day instead of going back to those pink log cabin blocks. Turns out I managed to put three strips on all 30 of the blocks going in the wrong direction. Instead of working counter clockwise around the center, the last three strips were all put on clockwise! I spent some quality time working on un-sewing while watching Lost.Meanwhile, I hear the drying buzzing, that means my greens are dry! Guess what I'm going to start?!?
