This is to document my love of and obsession with fabric and quilts! The true, guilty story of buying "just a little bit more", of shopping at thrift stores for the extra large mens shirts to use in your next quilt..and yes..even eyeing up your best friends blouse wondering if she'd notice if you "borrowed" it and just how many 2 inch strips you could get out of it!

First finish of 2012
Finally got to quilting the baby quilt this morning and it went by quickly. I just echo quilted around the balloons. What was so weird was being able to bring it outside and lay it on the grass to take a pic of it in January!!
I really found out how important my quilt league night is to me and getting things done. This past month, I didn't stick with it and got near to nothing done. So, starting this week, the Wednesday night quilt league is back in effect! One whole evening of nothing but sewing. Yay! I have lots and lots on the back burner that I hope to finally get caught up on.
Today is a cleaning/sewing day. Not sure how much else I will get done, but I will take anything! Tomorrow Shellie is coming over for a sew in so hopefully will get tons done since the quilt shops will be closed and we can't buy any more! lol
I am keeping track of how much I spend on quilting to the penny this year. I know some people worry about how much stash they have, but that is not a concern to me..the cost is. So, we will see how I do.
I have been asked to teach a class on my Geese Crossing quilt (YIKES!! Me...TEACH??), so instead of grabbing the next box, I will have to get this quilted so it can hang in the shop first. Then I have to figure out fabric amounts, how to teach...I don't think I can do this! Here is a reminder pic of Geese Crossing:
