I’m extremely happy to say that my midterms are over and Spring Break has officially started! Of course, for the younger set this means beaches and parties. For the older folk like me it means watching TV with my husband in the evenings and lots of crafting on the weekend.
I have so many plans for this weekend’s free time I’m not even sure where to start. I am hoping to finish the quilt top on the crazy nine patch quilt this weekend. I am 2/3rd’s of the way through the last set of 9 squares and after that it’s just sewing on the sashing. I have scrap fabric from the squares that needs to be pieced as part of the backing, and then I’m in the home stretch.
I am also hoping to hit the fabric store this weekend to pick out some fat quarters for the Quilt-a-long over at one of my favorite blogs, oh, fransson! If you’re a newbie quilter like me, this quilt-a-long is shaping up to be the perfect learning experience. Elizabeth has already done a couple of really great post on basic color theory and choosing fabrics so far that was a huge help to me.
Speaking of fat quarters, I have to say I made out quite nicely in the Sew Mama Sew quilt swap. Thanks so much to Calico Daisy, Simply Cotton, and Sibling Craftery who sent out such nice fat quarters. Please stop by their blogs and say hello.
Well, I’m off to begin the Spring Break festivities…first stop, quilt shop.
