I have a few more clues to my quilt project out here. What you've seen so far was log cabins. I forgot to let you know that they finish at 4.5"! Each log is only 1/2" wide. I have 32 more log cabins to make. But here is a peek of what I do have done.
Today mom was feeling good so we went to my favorite quilt shop out here - Li'l Country Shoppe. This store is all prims and folk art stuff (well mostly) and I always find tons that I love. Today was no exception. Mom treated and I brought all these goodies home! We had so much fun shopping and picking out fabrics. First the fabric above is just misc fabrics I got for projects I"m working on and/or I know I will use and can't find by my house.
Then these are going into a prim project I"ve been dying to make but never found the right plaids! I'll keep the project a surprise because I'll probably start it when I get home! (Well home in IL).
Then the coolest purchase we got were these fabrics and book. The book is "Laps from Fats for Family & Friends". This is the 3rd book EllenReplogle has done on fat quarter quilts. I just loved the other two and picked this new one up, opened the front cover and there was a quilt I fell in LOVE with! Mom took one look and practically begged me to make it for her! So we then started over and picked out fabrics for it. The big stripey fabric is the backing.
So can you tell today was as good as Christmas! I can't wait to get back to sewing tonight!
