I stopped by the quilt store yesterday and picked up some fabric to make a sample for the shop. Normally, I enjoy making samples but I have so much sewing of my own I want and need to do, it sometimes becomes a chore. I started making this little quilt top last night and it's going pretty quickly. I have enjoyed it and I only have one more border to put on it. It is turning out very cute. The pattern is called Cheep Housing and the fabric is bird fabric....I should finish it tommorow night and I will post a picture when done. It was a free pattern that came with the fabric...
As soon as I'm through with this, I'll be able to get back to my Orange Crush and other things I am chomping at the bit to work on....I have decided to make a heart quilt for my son's girlfriend for graduation. Saska from http://oklacookiemaker.blogspot.com/ has such a cute heart quilt on her blog, I just have to copy. I was going to change the pattern up a bit but after seeing hers, I don't want to change it. I think Steph will love this quilt so now I have to hurry and get busy doing just that....Too many quilts, not enough time! I think I'm going to take a few days off and do some sewing so I can get caught up on projects I want to work on. My civil war diary blocks are calling me and I still need to finish my Carolina Crossroads. I thought I would get to work on these at retreat but alas, no. I ran out of time there too. What's a girl to do but play hooky???
