The last thing I need to do right now is start another QAL but…..I found a new to me blog called Molli Sparkles and a quilt along that is just getting started using this block so I pulled out some batiks and made a block!
We got home from our trip yesterday and 2 hours later I had my sewing machine warmed up and going……Bob just shook his head at me as I showed him my block. I sure missed my sewing machine.
I can’t believe how hot it is now that we are home! While in Minnesota we had beautiful weather with no humidity and I even wore a jacket at night. At least we know that the weather will get cooler here soon. I’m going to check out the river front today and see if the poison ivy died while I was gone.
Now more on my stash! Another neat quilt shop was in Forest City, Iowa called The Quilted Forest.
This is another shop that I visited 3 years ago and I wish I had asked if I could take some photos. We got here close to the end of the day and I was just excited to do some shopping before they closed.
I bought a couple of the Cotton Candy strips last time and decided to pick up a few more. There are ten 2 1/2 inch strips in each little bundle…..aren’t they cute!
I waited until I got home before I opened them…..I can see a Halloween project made with the orange and black strips!
I also picked up a charm pack of High Street by Lily Ashbury for Moda and a couple fabrics that were on sale and seemed to match.
