I HAVE A FINISH!! - Happy Garden (king sized)
I finally committed to a bigger cutting mat. The little blue one (just about fits a fat quarter) is that one I have used all this time. It's a great brand and I had no complaints other than it was on the smallish side.
So, I decided it was time to graduate and went for the biggest one my sewing table would accomodate. I don't remember the size of it the top of my head, but it's huge! Where was this when I was trying to cut fabric for my king size? Can't wait to slice into a huge piece of fabric!
I also took advantage of a moving sale that In Color Order was having. Have you seen her selection of vintage sheets? I couldn't figure out what I wanted exactly, so I decided to get one of her Grab bags of Vintage Sheets. This is 10 fat quarters!! So exciting!!
I got 1/4 yards of (from left to right) Disco Flower - Hot Pink, Saturday - Brown, Zig Zag Stripe - Lavender, Lollies - Peach, Delhi Blooms - Grass. The last one on the very right is Bellflower - Orange and I got a bit more of that one *love*
I also splurged on a Kona Cotton Denim Fat Quarter Bundle... which is the starting point for a quilt for Mr. Happy. Can you believe after all this time I still haven't make a special quilt for him? Time to fix that.
And he put a request in that he gets it by October (before it gets really cold), so front and center this one goes.
So much for this being a Christmas gift.
All that shopping made me realize that it was time to get things back into an organized fashion. So, Sammy and I set out to seperate fabrics by size, color, and make sure they were neat and folded.
It took a lot of time to do it all, but I had my trusty helper at my side who stayed awake... for most of it.
Ok... enough of shopping and organizing. I am one of those that needs to have busy hands. And so, I started the mister's quilt last night.
Am I the only one that finds it hard to open one of these pre-cut bundle things? It's just so pretty.
Ok, one more look for good measure and then I tore into it!
Yes, these are the scraps from cutting a few pieces. I warned you the hint was distant.
