Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Bundle

Over the past few months I have been a member of the Fat Quarter Shop's Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Club.   Each month I receive fabrics picked out by a quilt blogger.  Today I was searching blogland and figured out that I can make up a dream bundle.... and might even win it!  How cool is this?  Just in the nick of time I am adding my entry to Quokka Quilts who is hosting a Blogger's Choice Fat Bundle contest!  I went over to the Fat Quarter Shop, and choose 12 fabrics + 3 coordinating solids to create my own bundle.   So glad I didn't miss the deadline which is tomorrow. Contest closes in a few hours!

Happy New Year

Well a new year is upon us and we are already two weeks in.  So New's Years resolutions?  Mine is t try and use less plastic bags at the grocery store.  Bring your own or do not get one!!! Harder than I think sometimes.  But I am doing better.

Projects I am still working on:

I caught up for the most part over break and now I am behind again. I have three blocks to do to get caught up.  So, actually I am not that far behind.  I am learning so much with this quilt along and recomend it to anyone who wants to learn a lot about quilting.  My friend Kat came over today and gave me a few hand applique tips.  Thanks!  Very helpful.

Ipad and laptop covers (4):

Over Christmas my family liked my ipad cover and since they all received new apple devices for Christmas I was asked to make them all covers for their ipads and computers.  I have chosen material but have made no further progress.  

I have my Flickr Bees as well.  I make blocks each monthe for these.  It is my month with one of the bees, so I look forward to receiving these blocks.  

Quilting under the Rainbow: This is the block I chose to receive.

Round 2 For the Love of Solids

I am so excited to be a part of the Curves Class over at stitchedincolor.com.

I am going to try and enter the Scrap Attack Challenge.  I would like to make some rainbow baskets out of my scraps.  

I do not have a plan, however there is a challenge up dealing with tangerine.  I might just come up with something to enter!!!  Orange is my favorite color.

My Step Mom Norma asked me to make her a tree skirt.  So far I have the pattern... but no progress.
