Just before the no buy deadline :P



I went and ordered some jelly roll type strips from Connecting Threads.
Yep I was talking to someone from guild and they raved that the fabric was nice for the price ( way better than Joann's and Hancocks) So what's a girl to do???
I've been looking at Bonnie's Weedwacker quilt and thought how lovely it would be in fall colors. Yes I know fall is upon us now and I'll never get it done this fall but next year my sister in law turns 40 ( yep a baby ) and she wants a fall colored quilt. So of course I'll need to "test" the pattern to see if it's something I want to do in a large quilts so I figured what the heck ....I also got a thing to smooth out the cutting mats...mine have been taking a beating lately even though the blades are changed regularly.....and as I cut more and more fabric for different quilts in progress now, I have been cutting both 2 1/2 and 2" strips for a truly scrappy quilt of many colors....

Off to take ds for his regular yearly check up- of course his stomach is still bruised and sore from the accident- poor kid. Have my cathedral windows parts to take with me for the wait....

Kim, the fabrics and colors in the jelly roll look so pretty. I think you'll like the looks of them in a quilt. Enjoy stitching.

Kim, those very same fabrics have been calling out to me for over a week now. I really like the placemats they show made from that line. Looks like you made a great choice!
