My DVR broke this week, which isn't a big deal because they just send a new one no charge, but there goes all my saved old movies. And while I was playing in St. George last week it was warm at home and every living thing in my yard came alive and sprouted buds and blossoms, including weeds. Spring is in bloom here from 0 to 60 all while I was gone. Now for fabric.
Isn't this Robert Kaufman fabric terrific. Look at those teapots and teacups, wow! So 70s. I sorta wish the colors would go better with red but I love them anyway.
I'm pulling grays and some gray blues for the pickle dish/gypsy kisses quilt. I want the blocks in the corners to be gray. These are from Sew Mama Sew.
I really love these 2. I figure the black and white look gray if you squint your eyes a bit. Well maybe not, but I'm using it anyway.
Speaking of the pickle dish quilt. I nearly ran out of this blue and white scrap piece for this unfinished block above. But I searched and searched in my small pieces to find just barely enough fabric to complete the block. I nearly had to beg for everyone to look in their stash for me as a back up because this dot is years old and I can't get anymore (trust me I tried). But I'm just barely okay. I hate that paper piecing uses more fabric than you think it will. I've been trying to make 1 block a day and so far it is working out. But not only does paper piecing take more fabric, it takes time, too. At least I think so.
I got this hounds tooth fat quarter set at Superbuzzy. I've always loved hounds tooth. These are cotton quilting weight, which are hard to find in hounds tooth. I remember the black and white wool hounds tooth from the 60s my mom had on her shelf. I think my sister got a dress out of it.
Happy weekend all.
