Don`t forget

I went shopping The Quilt Store in Newmarket had all their fabric, baticks, fleece and cotton fabric 50 percent off. Tomorrow is the last day. The 2 fabrics above are going to be in 2 quilts that I am working on. The blue one will be for the swap blocks that I had joined you can see the icon on the side Winter White.
The second fabric is going to be my opposite fabric for my sally post quilt…Gosh I just love it!!
Then I bought a bunch of 1meter cuts. That is it for most of the year my Christmas gift from my honey…he gave me money and I spent it wisely…
I also started my Birds of a Feather block that I am working on with a Yahoo Group called
 Applique Your Way all pinned and ready to applique my first block. We are alternating BOAF and Vintage Valentine each month. There are many other BOM`s that people are appliquing if you need a boast or want to finish what you have started.
I also got my fabric from my winnings from This n That fabrics I am not a purple person but I really like that one with the stars in it, I picked them and needed to get some new variety in my stash. I want to use some of that gold one at the end for my Sally Post blocks.
The Sally Post blocks is what I will be prepping this weekend and working on too this pattern is currently being posted again (with a twist so that they can coincide with Barbara Brackmans BOM Sentimental Stiches is posting them on the straight) . The Yahoo Group I belong to called
Prim Folk Art Quilts are making these blocks in their own special way. Some are machine applique some are needleturning some will be backbasting....each have their own technique and it is fun to learn from the members.
Remember you have till midnight tonight to post on the last post to win the 6month membership for The Quilt Show. I hope you get lucky, they have a wonderful BOM this year.
Well time to catch a nap just finished nights and doing some running around. hope there is a good movie on.
Oh shoot!! forgot I got a great Tshirt from my friend Mary (no blog) I will post that you will get a kick out of it, and I also got some great books I will post next time. Put it this way I think I have all of Black Bird Designs quilting books. Love their patterns I can`t wait to have one of their quilts hanging on everyone of my walls....and hopefully some Sally post blocks...
Until tomorrow for the draw…
