Two Projects, Two Sneak Peeks

Yes, I've been neglecting my blog.  I spent most of my time trying to decide what to buy at Fat Quarter Shop with my gift certificate busy busy busy.  This past weekend was filled with yard work--picking up sticks from the recent storms, pruning overgrown shrubs, and mowing the lawn with the repaired push mower. Spring is exhausting! I also worked on two project--one with a deadline and one that I couldn't resist. 

Sneak peek #1: The Quilt Room jelly roll sampler BOM from 2010. I'm quilting this one myself and am almost finished. Good thing because it's due to be gifted next week.   














Sneak peek #2:  Pips!! Oh those irresistible Sherbet Pips fabrics. I'm making a quick and chunky-block quilt to showcase these great fabrics that I didn't want to cut into little pieces.

I'm hoping you post more of your Sherbet Pips quilt soon. I have a layer cake I want to use but like you, want the perfect pattern to showcase the fabric. I don't want a quilt full of small pieces for this fabric.

Quilt #1 looks beautiful -- can't wait to see a full picture. Also can't wait to see what you do with the Sherbet Pips -- that looks like such fun fabric!

I was so ready for spring, and now that it's here, I spend all my time outside, like you, getting caught up on the yard work.....winter's not so bad after all!

They are calling for rain all weekend, woo hoo!

Your jelly roll sampler BOM quilt is gorgeous, what a wonderful gift!

Smart move on the Pips, I agree, that fabric is too adorable to be cut into tiny pieces. Am looking forward to seeing the finished flimsy.

I'd love to see the one you quilted. Can you bring it to Thimbles this weekend? When are you sewing?

I just got my Sherbet Pips in the mail. And I didn't want to cut them up too much. I'm still waffling on what to do with them.

They are so pretty!
