Last week I showed the pattern Wild Thing that I bought and the two Bliss charm packs. I was determined to get that top put together before today. As I was looking at the pattern I decided that it was not big enough. If I make a quilt I want it big enough to go on a bed. So I did a little calculating and figured that if I bought two more charm packs I could make 80 blocks and get the quilt up to 80 x 96". Off to my LQS I went and bought the charm packs and the fabric for the borders. That was the 5 1/4 yards that came in. I was able to use most of that plus 3 yds. of an off white background that I had. I started working on the top on Tues. afternoon and finished the last border on Friday afternoon. Let me tell you, this was one easy quilt to put together.
I have been working on my gifts for my quilt group. We will trade gifts on the 15th. I decided to put together the Tiny Totes by Happy Zombie. These little things are seriously cute. I cut out enough for 15 and have sewn up 4 already. I cut up 2 yards of stash for these but I will count it next week when they are all sewn up. One of the reds I used had 1997 printed in the selvage. I think that one had aged enough. (Just want to let you know the red really isn't that bright. It is a deeper more luscious red.)
I need to quilt a charity quilt that is on my machine and then I can put Wild Thing on and get it quilted. The good news is that I am back in the black.....just barely. But I will gladly take that. Woohoo. To give me an extra boost I am going to have a give away, my very first. I will post it Monday morning and have the drawing on Friday so it will help my stash report. Any suggestions or hints on running a give away will be appreciated.
One of these days I need to get going on my Christmas shopping. That is not nearly as much fun as sewing tiny totes. How is your shopping coming?
