Timeless Treasures Sketch
Moda Bake Shop Chenille Quilt by Pam Lincoln
Recipient: my niece:)
Tomorrow is my first guild meeting EVER!! They are called the Tarheel Quilters Guild. My friend, B. invited me and I simply could not pass up an afternoon of sewing time. Oh no, no:) I have a few projects besides the chenille top to work on. I will be seam ripping into my Lucky Stars block to get that 1/2" difference in check. I may bring my Dancing Stars top to hand stitch some more.
Fat Quarter Shop recently! With the free shipping on orders over $40, I snatched 6 spools of Aurifil 50 wt Mako cotton. This thread purchase was a long time coming. I did a lot of research before hand and spoke with friends around bloggy world here and there for a long time. I am psyched to say the least about using this thread!!!!!! While there, I found a grey Sketch print by Timeless Treasures for the pillows I plan on making for my living room couch *one of these days.* This is the pattern I have been drooling over. Lone Stars have entered back into my world. Yikes! Keeping my fingers crossed it works out a lot more smoothly this time around. Here is the pillow where my original inspiration came from. Karen of Laughter in Quilts did this one and I do believe she did a remarkable job with the pattern!!
I also bought some Aurifil colors over at Red Rock Threads in Silver Grey,Ice Blue and Sand for a great price!
I opened up a spool the other day with B. so we could undertake some *necessary* touch testing! Oh my it is soooo soft and worth all those pennies!! Long staple cotton just sounds wonderful doesn't it??!!!!
Now if I only had something to quilt--NOW! hehehehe
See ya'll soon!
