Border Fabrics

. . . have arrived!

Now I just need to finish the blocks so that I can actually cut into this yardage.

We're heading out on holidays on Friday a.m. so I'm afraid that any work on this particular quilt has come to a screeching halt for two weeks or more. Good news is that it will still be waiting for me when I get back.

This yardage is for my Tisket A Tasket Bunny Hill BOM . . . I kinda went out on a limb choosing the prints before the blocks are all done, but it was a good sale and I couldn't pass it by.

Sure hope that the prints I chose will work into the final layout . . . otherwise I'll be needing to do some more "sale" shopping! Bloggie rumour has it that block five of the Bunny Hill BOM will be posted tomorrow . . . so if you are following along, be sure to check out Anne's site (see sidebar).

I have also bought my first scrap bag from Moda . . . husband thinks I'm crazy buying other people's scraps . . . but he doesn't understand how great all those strips inside that bag are.

Looking forward to thinking up a project for this luscious little stack of possibilities . . .

'til next time,

M.
