The hubby returned late last night and he is sure a distraction! A trip to get the brakes on his truck checked out, dinner out...but it is nice to have him home again.
And I did get some quilty stuff done.
The origins quilt is a top now and I've made the binding already.
Some of you have mentioned that these are not colors you would have chosen. Many of them are not colors I would have been drawn to either, but I won a charm pack and decided to challenge myself. I'm glad I did because I really love about half the prints and colors in this now.
And I should give credit for the pattern, though I didn't exactly follow it. The original, Crossing Paths, came from the Moda Bake Shop.
And then I moved on to the Bliss fabric.
The French Kiss pattern (Fig Tree Quilts) is what I am working on with these fabrics. But I couldn't get the required honey bun to make it, so I'm trimming down the jelly roll and planning to use the scraps to make strippy keychain wallets for all the nieces for Christmas. I haven't made any yet, so my fingers are crossed that that plan works out well.
So here's the after:
Not as much cut as I would like, but I'm getting there. And tomorrow is another day.
And a little excitement and a big thank you to Kathleen. When I went to get my mail, I found a box. What was in the box?
Purple fabrics! (And some super cute kitties, too.) These are awesome! I'm not sure what they'll turn into, but maybe when some of the other projects running around my brain turn into actual things something will come to me.
And with that, I have bills to pay and plan to turn in early tonight thanks to the hubby napping on the couch. (I missed him, but I don't miss his wierd sleeping patterns!)
