Oh and I can't forget..


I was asked to make a quilt for a stitching friend for her daughter, so I will refer to it as "Dara's Quilt". Its cross stitch designs with a fairy tale feel to it. So last week, I went to the quilt shop and looked at the Moda wall, and I slurped my tongue, and had at it! I love picking out colors for quilts! I just stuck to the Moda fabrics, and I was lucky enough to find each design a different color. I need to make it in to a lap quilt.

This quilt will have a block feel to it, but I'm going to make it offset alittle - not make it up and down.. but kinda start from a size point, and have fun with it. I have the border fabric and I have the backing, so I'm set to go. I have all the fabric washed, and I just need to iron it. Then it will be onto cutting the blocks, and going from there... So stayed tuned for the WIP of that quilt.


Also, about a month ago, while at Karen's Quilt Shop in Rhinelander, I had spied a quilt book I just had to have. So I came home, and I couldn't take it anymore, I had to order one for myself! So, a week or two ago, I had to stop at the quilt shop, so I picked up the fabrics for my Happy Hour quilt! I love the colors!





So, there are quilt tops in my future!! So if you don't hear from me.. assume I'm really busy!
