Truly meant to put out a few more posts this week, but, alas, real life got in the way. Again. :-)
Taking a vacation day Friday made this a 3-day weekend. I stayed up past my bedtime Friday and Saturday night to sew and managed to complete the back of 2 quilts (more to come on that later). It's such a relief to have these finished. Now all I have to do before quilting is finish those pesky leaders for my quilt rack and I will make good on my promise to have one of these quilts done by the time I podcast again next Sunday. Yeah!
Saturday, my mom and I took a day trip to Waynesville, OH - home to The Fabric Shack. I made several purchases.
-2 charm packs of Hunky Dory by Chez Moi for Moda
-1 yard of Kona Snow (I know... I just bought 7 yards but I was short for one of the quilt backs)
-2 yards of Kona Bleach White
-1/3 yard of Sentimental Studios for Moda (from the remnant pile!)
-2 fat quarters of Michael Miller
I also found a yard of antique pink crocheted trim for 50 cents from an antique dealer. Very pleased with this find. Not sure what I'm going to use it for. The right project will come along someday...
In between craziness this week, I managed to complete my first block in the Designer Mystery Block of the Month Christmas Quilt from Fat Quarter Shop. I LOVE the finished product. Super fun pattern and loving the fabrics.
Look for week 3 of Prost tutorial to be up tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing photos of your finished projects on our Flickr group!
