Another rainy Saturday morning; but I will take it. A great chance to stay in and putter around the house. But I must admit that the temperature outside has warmed up and although the back yard is very soggy I do have a bit of the 'gardening bug'. I can see my herb garden come back to life along with many weeds that need to be pulled..... ah another weekend.
This week was another quilty week:
Here are some of the lovely fabrics that showed up in my mailbox this week! Do you notice a trend? Seasonal influences perhaps? Dreaming of summer? Yes, yes, yes! But I am in love with the line of fabric by Choe's Closet "Fruit Cocktail". (bottom bolt) very vintage vibe - the colors are lovely.
And I wanted to include a picture of my lovely magnets that I won as a doorprize at our Thursday night guild meeting. These are handmade by another talented member of our Modern quilt guild, the fabulous Amy Dame.
Today, on this rainy Saturday I plan to work on 'rug mug' designs for an upcoming 'rug mug' swap with the Vancouver Modern quilt guild. I have a few ideas. One is based on this lovely photo:
I love scrappy quilts. I made a smaller version of this quilt last year and I have always wanted to make individual blocks. Check out the link to Freida's Hive for the tutorial. I love the block!
