Friday Fun

It's Whoop Whoop Friday over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, so here goes!

Yesterday I finished quilting Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin. Today I trimmed it so it's ready to bind.


Whoop Whoop!

But then...I couldn't find the fabric I'd set aside for the binding!

Uh Oh.

It's not like I can go out and buy more fabric.

Even if we had a quilt shop in the vicinity, I'm on a "fabric fast" for 5 more months! Drat!

After a brief panic, logic kicked in and I thought of my UFO cupboard. Maybe I'd tucked the fabric in there? It's kind of a UFO...

Whoop Whoop! Let the happy dance commence!

Not only was it there...it was already made into a binding, ready to sew onto the quilt!

The quilt is under the foot of my machine, ready to go, but I somehow got distracted and worked on my Scrappy Plus quilt instead.
Sometimes that's how I roll...

The colours are surprisingly accurate!
See the empty pincushions? There are approximately a million pins in play here.

In addition to using all the pins in my cushions, I've emptied two boxes and started on a third. After this project I'm changing to a stickier fabric on my design wall FOR SURE!!!

Here is a similar shot in normal mode: poor lighting, and all. My apologies, but the sun when down!



It was my birthday yesterday, and my mom gave me quite a treat! 
Lucky me!!! 

New fabric without breaking my "Fabriholics Anonymous" pledge!  

Can I get a Whoop Whoop! (Last one, I promise! Ha!)


Thank you so much, Mom!

    1. They are 2 1/2" squares! I have so many scraps begging to be used, so it made sense to dive right in. Perhaps I need my head examined??? :) :) :)

    1. Thank you! I can't wait until it all comes together - love how the look changes when the "bits" are pieced into a whole.

    1. Lol! Yep, my Mom does know what I need/desire/lust after, that's for sure. :) Thanks, there's nothing better than a (birth)day of quilting that ends with a family feast cooked by someone else!!
