A few weeks back I mentioned my mom had gotten me some fabric for my birthday, but I never showed you. I forgot!
A roll of fat quarters and two coordinating one-yard cuts. Very fall. Not sure what I'm going to do with this yet.
And a jelly roll. I have ideas for this one! Inspiration here.
So next week the hubby has meetings in Chicago. I'm debating going with him, but to be sure I can go, I've taken the whole week off work. That means a week of sewing (because even if I go, he'll be in meetings most of the days, so I'll be sewing in the hotel room!)...
And my challenge for myself is to get the doggie parts sewn onto the doggie quilt.
(2 down, 2 to go)
My mom has made quite a few quilts for Project Linus, so I'm going to see what I can do with the scraps left over from making receiving blankets.
I'll need to get patterns for the hats, scarves and mittens I think I'm going to make for the nieces and nephews for Christmas this year, but JoAnn's has patterns on sale right now. Yay!
I've also planned a stop at a local-ish quilt shop that has lots of modern stuff to get more Origins for borders. (Fingers crossed they have what I need!)
And I'm terrified to tackle the zipper in the Itty Bitty bags, but I'll see how the first one goes...
A week of no work.
Ideas for other quilts are flying around in my head again today.
(That sock monkey fabric is calling to me...)
So I'll be busy! And if I'm not too inspired to stop, I'll share pictures!
In the meantime, it's back to the doggie parts to make that challenge. (Have you seen what she's giving away to one lucky participant who meets their goal? No? Well, don't go look because I really want to win it and if you see it and join in, my chances go down!)
