This weekend, my goal was to quilt the charity quilt for my sister. While I made progress, and simultaneously drove my husband crazy by overtaking the living room for quilting… I got a little sidetracked.
So, is anyone really surprised that I got sidetracked? Wait, you are? You must be new around these parts. I’ve got about fifty projects going at any given time, and it’s no surprise that when I walked into Rock Paper Scissors, aka Heaven on Earth, I was instantly smitten with a 10″ charm pack. I’m talking, it immediately became someone’s quilt and I just had to make it now. Did I mention I went to get 4 yards of black for the Molli Sparkles Broken Herringbone quilt along? Yes, I’m late to that party, and 4 yards turned into 12? yards of gorgeous new fabric. Who.does. that?! (And, sorry, Molli – I’ll catch up soon, I promise!)
The new project:
That is Kona Cerise as a perfect compliment.
aka. This was meant to be. #lifecolor
(Yes, I did just hashtag on my blog. I do what I want.)
The fabrics are Joel Dewberry’s new line, Bungalow that I didn’t even know existed. Perfection.
Now, I have a date this week to finish quilting the charity quilt and start chain piecing these beauties. Oh, and don’t worry. It will soon get a natural lighting photo. But, it was randomly designed between 6 and 7 tonight while my husband was running, because the cooking streak from last weeks epic win is over. I served him cereal for dinner tonight. It was either quilt or cook. Don’t lie and tell me you wouldn’t make the same choice…
