My how time goes by when you are having fun. My Cousin says I am running around like a turkey with its head cut off - Thats just too funny! We are running a lot for swimming but I am managing to get some quilts done, and some fabric shopping in. I don't quite have enough fabric for the Quilt of Valor project for next year at the school, so I have been watching the sales. Some of the Patriotic stuff is on sale now. I found some really neat prints on the clearance rack at the LQS that would be great for backings - so picked some of those up. I now have backings for 2 quilts. This is a good start! When I told the owner what we were doing she threw in an extra yard!
Another friend of mine says she has a box of some fabrics we might be able to use - so I am looking forward to picking those up .
A customer recently brought me a jewel box quilt. I just love the look of these quilts and she used such vibrant colors. It turned out really neat. She made it a few years ago , then didn't like it, so I assumed it would be wavy and unsquare - bad assumption. This lady's piecing is perfect - I learned a lot just studying it!
Have a quilty day!
