I Think This Is Going To Be Fun

This weekend I am ready to start on my new "list" for the quarter!

I had Gypsy Kisses on the list and
 that one seems to be calling my name!
I had little bundle of Lori Holt fabric that I got as
a sweet birthday gift last October. I
have been holding on to it... and I think it 
will work good for this pattern.
Although I was very tempted to use April Showers like Cindy had used.
I learned the freezer paper method of paper piecing with those two practice
units in the photo above!  Cindy used that method to make her 
Gypsy Kisses quilt.
I am thrilled to know this method...
because I am really not a fan of the other option.

A couple years ago when I first got the bug
 to make it I saw one over at Frieda's Hive 
blog that Nanette was making. How cute is that center?!?

Of course this was the first
 inspirational one... right from Material Obsessions.

Here is Evie last Friday at the lake... all ready for the 
festivities of the Fourth of July!
This weekend we will be back over there for the annual BBQ.
I am looking forward to play time... in the sewing room
AND at the lake too!

I hope you have a great weekend!

It is going to be fun! Love your fabric and so glad you like the freezer paper method. It changed my feelings about paper piecing.

Hi Sinta. Looks like darling Evie is standing out across from the Forks, near the dock. We were supposed to go to Bass Lake tomorrow for a few days. My Mom and friends have the house rented on the lake. She is heading out early tomorrow. Greg just couldn't get away from work right now. I didn't want to go without him. Boo!!!!
XO Kris
