Oh, My! Again

So did you visit Sinta?  If you did, you know that she made the first sample quilt for
Fat Quarter Shop's Scrap-Basket Sensations Quilt Club using the pattern for Picnic along with Hometown fabrics by Sweetwater.  What you may not know is that Kimberly enjoyed your sweet comments and has decided to give away five more copies of the book!
The drawing will be on June 1, so scoot on over if you haven't entered. 

I spent a little time in my playroom this weekend working with my bag of strings.

And trimming a few triangles.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Is the Weekend Over Already?

Is it just me, or do weekend days go by so much faster than weekdays? 

I worked on sample blocks yesterday for an upcoming class, and I had a lot of 2 1/2" strips left over.  I had seen Heirloom Creations' Jelly Roll Race a while back, and decided to sew my leftover strips this way.  Instead of sewing the strips with diagonal seams, I sewed them end to end.  Since I wasn't using full-length strips, my quilt is smaller, but large enough for a baby quilt. 

If you haven't seen the Jelly Roll Race video, check it out.


Have a good week!
