Thursday/Friday

Thursday was a crazy day for me - the moon and stars were definitely NOT aligned.  
It was a day full of angst for me - sigh - don't ask.  LOL 

My Cherry Christmas layer cake project has been put on the back burner for a few days - sigh - don't ask.  :-)


Fall is on the bottom of my list of favorite seasons so I don't have many Fall themed quilts. 
I hit 'pay dirt' today because I discovered a bin filled with an old line by Sandy Gervais for Moda called Nature's Kaleidoscope.  Rusts, rusty reds, greens, gold, purples and blacks - very yummy!  There was a pile of fat quarters, border, binding and backing fabric.  Wowzer! 

I spent the majority of the day searching for a pattern; once that was found then I started cutting so I can spend Saturday sewing, sewing, sewing.  woohoo!  I'm anxious to get it pieced so I can quilt and bind it.  I think it'll look beautiful on my quilt rack in my entry with some Fall decor. 

I hope your days have been pieceful.

In Friendship!

Sorry your Christmas quilt got sent to the back burner. I had one of 'those' days today! I was cutting up a layer cake for a project and made a wrong cut. :-o I am hoping I can add in some similar looking fabric to fix my booboo. :-/ The autumn fabrics look great! What pattern did you choose? Have a fun sewing Saturday!

I'm looking forward to seeing what pattern you selected for your fall quilt. The fabric looks beautiful. I hope you have a productive weekend because I can't wait to see your results.

Really?!? Fall is my all time favorite season! Love everything about it! SO happy you will have a fall quilt to enjoy. I'm hoping for some happy sewing time this weekend too.

Looks like you founds some great fabric to make a fall quilt. Can't wait to see what you decided. You'll be pleased to have it for your entry.

Fall is definitely at the very bottom of my list of favorite seasons - I yearn for spring and summer!!! I have finally stopped decorating for fall, the colors don't do anything for me and it just reminds me of how much I don't care for the season - I just bide my time and wait until I can put up the christmas decorations. Happy quilting to you - and watch out for Wabbits.

I can't believe you don't have a fall quilt. I think that's all I ever make or at least those are the colors that I always go to. The new quilt in those colors will look great anywhere.

Thank you,I am reminded that i need to make a couch quilt for our newly renovated areas downstairs, that means I need to check out my "kit" boxes.

Your fall fabric looks yummy! I just bought two fall charm packs today! :0)

No sewing today for me. I did get a few hours in last night though! I hope to post tomorrow. :)

AnnieO said...

OK, I won't ask :) But I will say I love Sandy Gervais' designs and colors. She is a Fall lover, like me. Hope you edge closer to loving Fall with all those yummy prints and hues!

Well good riddance to THAT Thursday! I fly by the seat of my pants, but I don;t like surprises that upset my balance. LOL. I hope that your weekend was filled with only lovely things - that pretty fabric being one of them!

Ugh, I hate days like that. I love to see piles of cut up fabric. Like a nice to do list.
