Well I'm back! Life (work and trips away) has got in the way of recent blogging. The last two weeks I've had the pleasure of visiting at least 6x quilt shops. Joy, oh joy! The photo shows two of my buys. I know I don't need to start another quilt but I just cannot resist starting the house quilt in the Blackbird Designs book. It is devine and mostly used needleturn applique which I have recently begun to love! I think I will be able to start sewing the first block soon. The fabric bundle I bought is by Moda and will be perfect for a quilt pattern I found (yes another quilt) in a Homespun magazine.
