Whoop, Whoop Friday
I finished up the Sajou mini. I didn't like the final border that Lori revealed, but I liked how it was just at this stage. So I stayed at this finish and got it quickly quilted for a table topper. The binding fabric is the same as what I used on the back.
The guild BOM made in the mini form was finished up as well. The back is the maroon gum leaf print as well.
I quilted up a charity quilt as well, if it ever stops raining or blowing up a storm- I'll get an outdoor photo of that one to share.
With three finishes I am treating myself to a day of play by dumping a baggy of scraps. I have to knuckle down over the weekend on a commission piece - so this pile better get some quick work.
I have been on a bit of a shopping spree. I took my SIL to the new shop 'Bloom' where I bought that fabulous 'Zentangle' panel. I wanted this - 'Thicket' by gingiber (zest for your nest) for Moda.
As well as her 'Catnip' - just LOVE!
Then I saw this panel on the wall - On The Farm - Andover Fabrics. I bought two so I could share with a quild member who has a mini farm. I'll have to pick up some bandana fabric for this. I picked up another 'no so halloween' print of bats and candleabras that I gave to another guild member - I gave it to her before I got to taking photos. She's a bat expert and travels the world studying them - always looking for bat fabric.
You have to look closely, but that little print is sheep. How stinkin' cute - my 'just have to have because' pieces. Scored the last of her Zen Chick 'background', the "Catnip" jelly roll, and I have wanted to play with Kaffe Fassett for a long time - a collection design bundle that is soon to get cut into.
Then this came in the mail from Connecting Threads. My thread order (and then they had the sale - on now) and 10 yards of Osnaburg Muslin for a special project this winter.
Now I have to save my pennies (thanks to Val's Piggy Bank Challenge) for a LGS sale in February for a stock up on extra wide backing. I think my hibernation this winter is actually going to be pretty busy playing with all these goodies.
