OMG!

And....check out the gift! Isn't he great?

I haven't been quilting this week. My son's play is this weekend, so we've been running to rehearsals all over the place. My youngest one has been sick, I've had tests in my classes, and I cut my finger with the rotary cutter when I tried to quickly sneak in 20 minutes of piecing. Ouch! I think I need one of these:

I joined an online quilting bee. Along with 11 other ladies, we begin to create blocks for one another starting in January. At the end of a year, we will each have a quilt of squares made by the other members of the Bee. It sounds like so much fun!

I know it sounds crazy

I work with a lot of precut fabrics, fat quarters, layer cakes, etc. So, I don't prewash much of anything. And one of my favorite parts is the smell of the nice new fabric.
Is that crazy?

It's here...and couldn't be more gorgeous!

My Material Matters quilt kit from Honey Run Quilters in Chico, CA arrived today...it is so beautiful. So much prettier in person than the magazine or web could possibly show. Thank you so much to Carmen who picked out the most perfect fabric for the back and packaged it with a lovely card and obvious care!
Now I can hardly wait to cut into it...even though I know I will be nervous!
Silk, velveteen, brown, turquoise birds. Only one word: exquisite!
