Fab Friday Again

First things first – There is a Craftsy sale happening from now through Monday, May 11 at 11:59 MT. If you haven’t already tried a Craftsy class I recommend them highly. I’m currently watching Stunning Circle Quilt: Step by Step. I haven’t actually started the actual quilt yet, but hopefully someday after…

Now that the business is out of the way, let me just mention a couple of quilty things going on lately.

First, I’ve been working on a couple of hush hush projects so I’ll just have to tell you about them later. I finished the first top (which really stressed my design abilities) and sent it off to the very special quilter. Hopefully, we’ll get to see it all finished soon.

The second hush hush project is still in the design and assembly stages. This one should be a little less stretching for me, but you never know.

I spent some time hand quilting for the first time in a while. I had forgotten how much I miss it!

I did do a bit of shopping at the Hancock’s of Paducah batik sale. Here’s the haul:IMG_2674

The original plan was to layer and baste the church quilt today, but plans changed. However, I had already totally cleared my cutting tableIMG_2677

Since it looked so lonely I decided to work on cutting the finishing kit for the 2014 Designer Mystery BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop. After all, the last block arrives sometime in the next week. I am one or two blocks behind also (one of which I can’t find which is a little scary). I got about half of it done, so I need to head downstairs shortly to finish that up.

Here’s a non-quilty bit of information. Yesterday was the weekly coffee at Barnes & Noble. Three quilting magazines forced me to purchase them, and I was delighted to see that Barnes & Noble has very cool booky bags again. This time there are quotes from classics. One side of mine is Romeo and Juliet,and the other is Wizard of Oz. This is (obviously) the Romeo and Juliet side.


Yep, this is kind of a boring Fab Friday. Sorry about that. Someday soon I’ll be able to show you a couple of other things. I hope.

Quilt on!
