Two things for show and tell!

001Last year I did the In Color Order 1/2-triangle-square block of the month, and last weekend I finally sewed all the squares together! I added three extras to make a long, skinny quilt for the back of the couch. Perfect to snuggle under with a bowl of popcorn and a good movie. I will be putting borders on eventually – I need to take it to the quilt shop and audition a few fabrics. I’m thinking of a yellow batik. What do you think?

And I got presents! Wonderful Mr. C (that’s “C” for charming, don’t ‘cha know!) brought home these!

The charm packs are Bella Solids for my orange peel quilt, and the jelly rolls are 2wentyThr33 by Eric and Julie Comstock and Boho by Urban Chick. Just because he loves me. I love him too (but not just because he buys me fabric, lol!)

How was your Saturday?

    Your quilt top is lovely. I’ll look forward to seeing how you decide to do the borders. And I’m very impressed by Mr C’s fabric choices 🙂

    I had a wonderful Saturday! I went skating downtown with my family and then had a wonderful visit with a girlfriend, including a surprise sewing project. 😀 And THEN I got an order from Taiwan for 5 of my CDs. Now sitting with all the lights off in honour of Earth Hour.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
