One Step Forward, Two Steps Back (or more)

I taught a class at Cottage Quilts over the weekend. It was a lot of fun... nice people! One brand new quilter in the bunch... we did our best to be a bad influence on her. The newbe and two of the other girls even signed up for my retreat! Whoohoo!
I couldn't help myself when I found this pattern over the weekend! I had seen Sherri at A Quilting Life working on this and it looked like fun. I had some Aviry fabric in my stash and was able to get it all ready to go... because I am almost done with the Fig Tree Turnover project.


I just need to get these rows sewed together and the borders on and wha-la!
Here is another project spinning around in my head that I want to get to. It's Pam Kitty Morning's new purse pattern. I thought I would like to try it out in some of the vinyl covered fabric in Shangra-la and the coordinates to it. I can see that it will be cute in any fabric group!

I don't know what I am going to do with these yet. I started collecting the pink and just added a little to it with some fat quarters that were on sale at Cottage Quilts. I'm kinda of leaning towards basket blocks... what do you think?



Here's a little bundle that might work for the purse pattern too!




A plethora of directions to go in! I have this sweet charm pack of Bunny Hill fabrics that Cottage Quilt made up. A Snibble might be the answer but I am really getting into the Dresden Plates also... decisions, decisions!


So as the weekend ended... I was ahead with my Fig Tree shop sample project but I seem to have a bunch of projects to add to my list!

So much to comment on here...where to start? Your confetti quilt is going to be wonderful in Aviary!!! And the Turnover quilt is wonderful...I have that pattern and will definitely have to make that one as well!

Love the quilt! And your love that collection you have there for the bag, particularly the blue/green but the brighter colors as well. Hope you have fun with it!

You have a long "to do" list! I think it's all going to turn out great. Can't wait to see some of the finished projects.

Oh my goodness. I had been afraid of the Confetti Cake pattern, but now that you are tempting me with Aviary---I just may have to make that one!!!! Working two jobs is cutting way into my sewing time.
