A bit of this and a bit of that

It's been a fragmented week, but I have been working on a few different projects. First of all I have been bustin stash for a fun quilt from Bunny Hill Designs "YoYoville".

I decided to adjust the quilt to fit my California King and quilt the center before adding the borders and sides. Another way to get more width that my 10 foot quilt frame hold.  I actually like this method. I used a quilt as you go on the borders, and was on a roll, making it happen, when don't ya know I was 1/3 of a yard short on my border fabric. A quick trip back to my fabric shop was in order. I do have it now, but haven't seemed to get back to putting that last border on, so I can have some fun building my houses and trees. Hopefully this weekend, that will happen.


Then "Chocolate" quilt. I am so enchanted with this fun pattern that I decided that I had to make another. Brown and turquoise kept running thru my mind, and since I am teaching that class in a couple of week, I figured I would start another, to use as a sample of how to put things together. So the shopping began, over the past weekend. My favorite part. I found just the fabrics I was looking for too, and only a few different stops. Can we say Ohhhh Ahhhh!!!  

Ruth and I have been busy making plans for this class and it promises to be quite fun. We have some great surprises that are going to happen during class, so you won't want to miss out. :-)  I say no more! hehehehe  Check out Wooden Spools if your in the Denver, area for our August/September class.

We are off to the Capitol today for the Capitol Quilt Show. I have never been, but hear that it's a must. So today, is the day we "must" go!  I am sure I will have so much inspiration when I get back, that I will need to add another 50 years on my life to finish all the quilts I want to make! Ain't it the way?  :-) But what a great vise to have, right?

  2. How lucky are you to be able to get that extra fabric for the border. Usually when that happens there is none left.
    Love the idea of the brown and turquoise for the chocolate quilt. Very tasty!
    Good luck at the quilt show. I am also off to one tomorrow but in Melbourne of course.
