Shopping and a Little Finish

All those tempting sales that have been going on for the past month have just been too much for me!


Fig Tree put together this lovely package of Christmas colored prints . . . I couldn’t resist.


And then there was the scrap bags that she had put on sale – those just sent me over the top and I had to have a few of those bags.  There are some of the strike-offs from California Girl and pieces of Buttercup and all kinds of other big and little lovely prints from other collections.  The nice thing about buying scrap bags from the designer is that all the scraps blend . . . bonus, or what?!?!?


I finished another little miniature quilt for a present – tick another one off the list.


The finished measurement on this one was 10” x 10” and the corner blocks were 1” square finished.  That makes the other ones about 3/4” finished.  Talk about using up scraps . . . now I know why I have been putting all the scraps from previous quilts into baggies!


Oh, and then The Fat Quarter Shop had a 50% off sale on Reindeer Games a few weeks ago . . . couldn’t resist that one.  I also ordered the background cream and the two border fabrics on spec.  Not sure which quilt to make with this line, but I do have my eye on this free pattern over at the Moda Website

If you haven’t been over to the Moda site for a while (or ever) – head over and have a look at the collections and some of the free patterns they have to offer.  I found a couple new ones that I have added to my collection – just what I need!

Have a great week.

I just wanted to thank you for your Spring Dream quilt pattern on Moda Bake Shop. I made it (a little bigger than what you had) and it turned out spectacular. Here's a link to my blog if you're interested in seeing it.

Thanks again.
