for today, April 16th, 2009 ...
Outside My Sewing Room Window...the sun is out and there is a subtle breeze that is blowing through my window. outside it's warm, but inside, i still need a sweater.
I am thinking about...what to make to give as a 'gift' to my class on saturday. it needs to say 'april'...hmmm, i'm currently at a loss...any ideas???I am thankful that i made two pot pies last night so that i don't have to cook today.
I am working on...this quilt. it's called flower market and it uses 4 identical charm packs (or a layer cake, cut up) i am using the sweet line by moda. i love this fabric. how many quilts can you have of the same fabric before it becomes too much???
(they are so cute, maybe i'll leave them here)
i got the fabric and ordered the crocheted trim and was looking forward to making the wonderful things
when i realized that if i wanted them to look like the picture i need 1 1/4 yards NOT 1 yard like the magazine tells you! AHHH! so irritated! i'll have to call and see if the quilt shop has more of this fabric. (fingers crossed...)One of my Favorite things...is this quilt. it is the first class i took from cheri saffiote (now payne). i love it. i ran into her today and she said i could bring the kids over to see her animals. i want to see her quilty stuff!
I am looking forward to...my quilt class tomorrow night.
On the Longarm is...one of my quilts. jill's probably smiling at the thought of it! i rarely get my quilts finished, let alone quilted!
A tip from the sewing room...moda has a great website (click here) if you go to 'fun stuff' it has a lot of free patterns and tutorials. it also has setting size charts and bedding measurements.
I thought I'd share...this book called ribbonrie. oh. my. heck. it's beautiful and FULL of great projects, both sewing and scrapping!
