I was so excited to get the first block and the finishing kit in the mail for the 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month from Fat Quarter Shop
First block is done.
Next up is my first finished block for this month's Schnibble--the brand new pattern called Leap Year. I just love 16-patch blocks. I love them better than 9-patches; don't know why. I am using 2 charm packs of Little Apples fabrics. Cutemous!!!!!! Look at the little fussy-cut squirrels. Adorable.
In another (ahem) package from Fat Quarter Shop this week came a fat quarter bundle of Lily Belle by Bari J. in the cool color way for the Hexy Quilt Along on the Fat Quarterly blog. The manufacturer is Art Gallery Fabrics and the silky hand of the fabric is just wonderful. Beautiful fabrics that computer screens don't do justice too. You need to see in person. It is nearly too pretty to cut up.
