Yesterday I finished my Starry Eyed Quilt Countdown to Christmas flimsy and I am beyond thrilled.
I discovered this pattern on the Moda Bake Shop last year and wanted to make it very badly. I'd already made several other projects using Countdown to Christmas and simply couldn't justify spending more money. So, I printed the pattern and added it to my 'someday list'. Sigh! :-)
Fast forward to 2012.
Not long ago I was chatting with my friend, Carol at Brown Quilts 4 Me and she mentioned that she had a fat quarter bundle of Countdown to Christmas and wasn't sure what she wanted to do with it. Well, I immediately sent the link to the Moda Bake Shop pattern and she was instantly smitten. :-) I like being an enabler. teehee! The pattern requires a layer cake and two charm packs (ironically I had four charm packs). She offered to share her fat quarter bundle with me and I offered to send two charm packs to her - TA DA - now we could both make this quilt. (insert happy dance) LOL
Carol and I have shared fat quarter bundles in the past and have some wonderful quilts.
We have lots of fun planning and sharing projects.
Carol, thank you so much for being such a great friend.
I appreciate your visit - I hope you're enjoying a pieceful day.
