Thanks for sharing this I have wondered what came in these...love that mouse print!!
Ahhh I have been waiting so impatiently for Catnapping to be released somewhere I can buy it! I desperately want the mouse print!! I love the mouse on the bike
I just pinned this tutorial today: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2013/09/scrum-diddly-umptious-baby-quilt.html the larger squares would work well to show off the novelty prints, and the smaller ones would work for the bracelets and jewel fabrics?
Joke I love the little mice also, to be honest I wasn't really sure what line it was at first since it had a mix of fabrics.
So funny you picked this tutorial...Erica from Kitchen Table Quilting is a sweetheart! I own her X and + quilt (its gorgeous!!! and the reason I picked that block as August Queen) I love this pattern, also thinking maybe the sawtooth star block. Thanks for the link and the suggestion!
Is that the momo one?? It's so beautiful (and was posted on my birthday hehe). Now I'm jealous of your quilt as well as your haul!! How are your bee blocks coming along by the way?? I still really want to make an x and plus!
Similar to a sawtooth star pattern is the 'avalon scrappy summer' on moda bakeshop but that would take more charms than you probably have
Joke yes, it was the momo one and its really beautiful. Now that all my Christmas gifts are finished... I told myself I can't start another project until I get all my unfinished quilts done (Queen blocks and pillow pop excluded from this self ban). This one is on the top of the list since I want to hang it in my new sewing room. I was just looking at backing fabric today for it. Cant decide if I want to go with a green, red, or blue backing. The blocks have so many beautiful colors in them its hard to choose a good backing.
Skynme I'm trying something similar! I've written down a list in a notebook of the WIPs I should be finishing (especially the ones that are almost done!). I'm dying to start a swoon, but I have told myself that I am not allowed to under any circumstances until I finish off my lager WIPs. I'm trying to get as much done a I can before the New Year as I really need to figure out a better schedule for my time.
You could always use all the colours in a backing!! The new sewing room sounds exciting!
Joke Its so hard to finish my WIPs when I keep starting new projects...but there are so many I see and want to do. Maybe we should get like an incentive plan finish 2 WIP, get to start 1 new project or something. That way we stay motivated to knock them out. I am also on a new fabric purchase/anything quilting related ban right now (minus my monthly clubs that I already bought, or if I need a particular color for the bees) I've only been on it for two weeks and I feel sad. I thought working on WIPs would help, but it doesn't really. Nothing like getting a box of fabric (I'm such an addict) LOL
I've seen the 'Fabric Diet' being posted around various blogs, but there is no way I can go "cold turkey" and not buy any fabric!! There's a whole bunch of lines coming out next year I already know I want, and just today I filled up a cart at FQS... I haven't bought it yet, but it's sitting there... tempting me...
I'm going to participate in this linky next year: http://fiberofallsorts.blogspot.com.au/p/2014-lovely-year-of-finishes.html I figure to start with I can nominate my current WIPs and by the time they're finished, the other projects I started while working on these WIPs will become WIPs that I will need to complete for the linky later in the year... ha. I think there's also a UFO group here where members send you a FQ for every UFO you complete as incentive.
How fun! Glad to hear that you are getting really nice quality stuff too :)
