Blog Entry Number 498 and Counting
I'm starting to collect together some things for my 500th post giveaway. So far I have a book called Mindful Meandering, which has lots of great ideas for free motion quilting. I accidentally ordered two from Amazon when I forgot I already had one saved in my cart. I also found this very cute template which I used to make Paige's Whirlygiggle quilt. I thought it was lost and bought an extra so I could finish it up. I'll dig around some more in the next couple of days to see what else I can add, so stay tuned for more info. I'll probably even include some things that aren't random things I bought by accident!
I was motivated by Judy's design wall Monday to do some sewing this evening instead of collapsing in a ball of exhausted stress after a long day at school, which was my first instinct. I had already cut out the next three in Amy's BOM, although I'm still in March. I am sure I will catch up soon enough. I'm having fun trying all the new patterns and loving the way that they are all coming together. I have worked in new fabrics in as I ran out of the old. A shopping trip may be needed in the near future to replenish the stores.
Here is a close-up of this month's blocks. I think friendship star is first, followed by cactus something and then my favorite block for it's name, scraphappy.
