Shopping Leads to Sewing, right?

People who know me 
would find it hard to believe...

that I have been working too much...

and that
is the reason
my absence this month!

But it is true. 

Usually my work week centers around my lunch dates
and impromptu stops into the
local quilt shop.

I haven't even had much of an opportunity 
to quilt on the weekends!

But what I have done...
was to treat myself to some on-line retail therapy!

So I thought I would share some photos 
of my new patterns...

First of all... The Pattern Basket
has revealed a sweet group of new
hot-off-the-press patterns 
that were just a little bit unique and equally sweet.

and I think you will agree!

From Thimble Blossoms..,

I scooped up on Camille's spring cleaning event and got
a few patterns I have been wanting for a long time.
Norway, and Mini Red Letter day

Turnstyle by Amy Ellis and also Octagon Shimmer by Jennifer Sampou
These have been on my wish list also.

and then there was this one...
the Tic Tac Toe Dress for my grand daughters.

I think I can do this....

but I just need to find some of
that precious time!

You'll love making the Octagon quilt. If you want to check a different version, Google Sewing Party in Laguna Niguel and under classes she shows it done in dark blue with various Japanese fabrics -it's beautuful. I still need to hand quilt mine.

You really did take in a lot of retail therapy. All very nice patterns but I am in love with Feathers. I may add that to my 'someday' list.

I love the pattern you've picked! Perhaps you should start with the mini it's a fast and easy pattern:-)

I just love the Pattern Basket patterns. The strawberry one is one of my favorite quilts. So easy to follow and great pictures too. Just had to order Feathers. Love birds and this just looks so darn cute!! Thank you for posting these new patterns!

I love all of these. Good choices. I love the Feathers, That is a delightful pattern.
I hope you enjoy making all of these. I am greatly looking forward to your finishes.
If you are like me, you will probably work on three at a time.
Have fun!!
