Just what I needed

more scraps . I picked up a scrap bag of fabric at the thrift store for $1.99. I knew I didn't need it, but could see the Rothermel prints as hexagons. I was surprised when I opened it to find some Moda and other good quality scraps. I had been to JoAnns and Hancocks searching for a solid blue for a baby quilt with no luck,but found the perfect piece of blue in my bargain bag.
The next morning I went to the SPCA thrift store and found a cool sweater skirt and a like new pocketbook. I picked up a delft butter dish for someone that collects blue and white dishes. I don't know why I bought the Cronin bean was just too good of a deal to leave there. That is why I should stay far away from thrifts!

Design Wall Monday

I worked on the quilt for my bed this weekend. I don't know how other people whip quilts out so fast. I do not like the wine strip at all but it has to stay. Maybe I will put some applique on it or cover it with yoyos or learn to like it. :-)  I still need to add 10 to 12 inches all the way around. Will try to do that with the leftover prints.

Design Wall Monday

I'm back after a six week blogging break. I started this quilt as a challenge for quilt guild that would be due Dec. 2011.  But alas I am a guild dropout! The challenge was to make a quilt that included 20 blocks with 11 pieces each. I pulled it out yesterday and decided to surround those blocks with snowballs. This will be queen size and is for my  bed. I won all the Gervais fabric in two giveaways last fall. I've added Kona papaya and  espresso. I love these colors and hope to finish soon.
