A Very Good First Day
I sorted thru the first baggy of goodies. Many were juvenile and novelty pieces which I don't really use (saved a couple of kitties though), but a local church group can use them and they will get passed on. I did come across a few blocks and some needed finishing. Found most of the pieces or substituted from the barrels. These all went into the mailing box - eventually to be sent off to Sarah's lovely group and made into some caring quilts.
These did grab my attention though! How Fun!! But someone cut all those dinos out and now to figure out how to use them. I'm thinking a glue stick and small zig-zag will work. I just have to pick up some fabric to play them on. Yes, play - not place. They're too fun. I'm thinking the Quick Strippie from Mary's Quilts will make a nice quilt for them.
I totally forgot about the Moda Sampler - I thought I was only 2 weeks behind and then the new ones came out - so 3 weeks. Two blocks each Friday and I usually wait every two weeks to catch them up. So I got real happy to be on my machine and finished those 6 blocks up. We are half way with this now.
And I made my first 365 block! Today was cold, occassional flurry, sometimes blue skies, then a white out, back to grey with small flakes. Think this one expresses my day. If this is new to you, visit HERE to see all the link ups.
This is how Bella spent the snowy day - yeah, Princess and the Pea with all those blankets piled up on the quilt rack (I just washed all of those). I think Moe was stretched out on the quest bed.
Since that first bag of scraps cleared out so quickly, I grabbed another. This looks like a lot of skinnies and bits - perfect for the weekend to play in the Miniature Quilts magazine with.
