Slightly Tarnished Project - Found

When I opened the stash closet door I was prepared to spend a few minutes (or longer) searching for my 'slightly tarnished project'. 
Imagine my surprise when I spotted that 'diamond in the rough' - it was sparkling and taunting me.  :-)
 
I discovered four Honey Buns of Happy Camper by American Jane for Moda. 
 I had enough background fabric so it was obvious to me; it was meant to be. 
 

Back in 2010 Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co introduced a pattern called Short Line using these fabrics. 
Who am I to argue? LOL
 I pressed my background fabric and one Honey Bun and got busy. 
 
I'm sewing miles and miles and I'll be ready to show some progress tomorrow. 
 
I hope you consider digging through your stash in search of a 'slightly tarnished project'. 

Pieces parts of my Postage Stamp quilt. 
I'll be working on another section this week end, as well. 
 
One more thing - September is coming - do you know what that means?
teehee!
 
I'm off to enjoy another pieceful day - I hope you're doing the same.
 
In Friendship!

OOOH! Looks like a great project. I am too afraid to open my closet for fear of a bunch of projects falling on my head.

Now THAT looks like a fun way to spend the weekend! I'm afraid to go 'hunting'. It could be days before I resurface!

Ok. This is a test. Did it work? :-)

That's not a tarnished project! It's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Love that fabric!

I had to think for a bit about what September means! LOL. Are you going to be leading the charge for us?

Quilter Kathy said...

I like that descriptor "slightly tarnished"! I MAY have one or two of those around!!!

Kindred Quilts said...

Slightly tarnished will soon be a shining gem! Sometimes fabric hides from us deep in our closets, knowing the right project will come along someday... then you open the door, and there it is, yelling "pick me!" Can't wait to see the Happy Camper project...

Happy Campers is my absolute favorite line by American Jane. I've made two quilts so far and have plans for another two or three. I can't wait to see your project.
