What To Do!

I filled up a "punch card" at the LQS when I purchased one of these patterns below...
so I asked them to order the Lori Holt patterns for me....
it was such a nice treat!
I have some new patterns that were free and fabric to go with them as well!
Last week or so ago, FQS had 50 percent off of their RB fabrics...
so I scooped up on some!
It was a bargan but do you know how some places sell everything by the half yard?
Well, my confusion and haste while ordering got me twice as much as I needed.
But seriously, you can't have too much fabric can you?
But I might have too many choices!

I saw this Cake Stand pattern made up recently somewhere
and they substituted a domed cake stand in each of the rows...
there were cupcakes under the dome. I just might have to add that
twist to mine! I think it was just an embroidered dome.
I think that these will be future projects .

Right now I am trying to be good and get these handles sewn on
these blocks so I can finish up this quilt! It has been on the back burner
for way too long.

Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts is having a 6 week
6 block event called Busy Work.
These blocks are really cute!
This is how far I have gotten for block #2.

It is suppose to look like this one...
this is Pam's sample block

She just posted the third block today in case you are interested in some
Busy Work!

What I know I need to work on this weekend... is 

ah yes, a certain little Schnibbles pattern. I am
going to use the Vintage Modern  charms this month!
This is really sweet fabric... so I hope that it turns out cute.

Oh, I also want to thank you all for your comments on my last post.
#1 for thinking that Evie is as cute as I think she is!
and #2 for offering so much support and ideas for my obsession in finding
the fabric panels for Dolly Dresses.
I got a couple of good leads and was able to get what I needed.
Did I say needed? hahahaha!
Anyway, mission accomplished!
I got very lucky at Shabby Fabrics. They had a lot of Lakehouse fabrics, although they didn't
show any of the fabric panels on line. But with a quick phone call... and a little question, it
turned out that they had a couple of bolts of the panel but it just wasn't on line.
Have you been over to their site?
They have a free BOM available.
In case you needed something for BOM Rehab!

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE Lori Holt's patterns. I only wish she would make a vintage Halloween applique pattern. OMG that would be awesome!!

I wanted to let you know that I will be sewing all day Sunday and figured it might be fun to host a virtual quilt day in case others wanted to join me. I have a ton of binding to do and virtually sewing with others makes it a lot less tedious. :) :) If you are interested in playing, I have the details on my blog. No rules really! Just something fun to get encouragement from other quilters!! :) :)

I'm so glad you found the dresses panel for your adorable granddaughter.

Some of the pictures aren't showing up on my screen so I'll have to peek in again later.
