Two in a row!

Lookie here…two posts in two days…it must be spring break!  This weekend was very busy with errands and odds and ends, but I did get some things accomplished.  The crazy nine patch squares are completely pieced, all 36 of them.  The next step is to get to trimming them and then it’s time for sashing.  I can’t wait to see the quilt top come together.  OFquiltalong

I also did a little fat quarter shopping and used up some gift certificate credit at the local quilt shop, Calico Junction. It was only my second time in the shop and I’m pretty sure based on my browsing that’s it nearly 90% Moda fabric, which was just fine with me.  The lady who was working on Sunday was super sweet and cut fat quarters for me right off the bolts. She even did a little hunting with me to choose just the right yellows and oranges.  I went in armed with a printed out color wheel and my notes on color schemes and ended up with what I think is a nice  palette.  I haven’t chosen the sashing or the backing pieces yet but I do have something in mind. 




My most exciting news is that Chris and I have finally narrowed down what we want to do for vacation.  We’ve booked our plane tickets and tonight reserved our room in London.  I’m so excited I can barely stand it.  I’m really looking forward to some overseas blogging so stay tuned!


  1. Two posts in two days!?! Get in the habit—we like it! LOVE the fabric choices—especially the colors. London—I’m so jealous. It’s been 20 years since I was able to go to London. I absolutely love the place. Love the “tourist attractions,” the broadway shows, the palaces, the country side, the…… I just love it all. Can’t wait to hear about all your adventures there.
