QUILT MARKET




By this time, everyone should have arrived at Quilt Market. Me, I am anticipating on how much money I will be spending in the near future. I am on pins and needles waiting to see how many, and what lines Moda is going to release and how many new Ms. Rosie patterns there are going to be. I think at the moment, my favorite patterns have to be Ms. Rosie and Glad Creations. I know I said that I wasn't going to be signing up for anymore BOM in the near future, but I did sign up for the latest mystery quilt from Glad Creations. I just couldn't resist. I love their system. Usually, they send you swatches of the fabrics you can choose from and they had these beautiful fabrics. I figured what the heck, I really don't have any fall quilts and now I will.

The pictures I have posted today were the BOM that I did from the Moda line Chocolat. Love how this one turned out and now all I have to do is order the backing. I'm on a roll right, wrong. It seems lately that I just can't get anything finished. It seems all I am doing is ripping out right now.

I received my name from Sharon today for the chocolate swap. Need to finish my card and get my package all ready to go. Hopefully, I can get this done sometime next week. Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't believe tomorrow is Friday already. Thank goodness. This week has gone fast but not fast enough. I just can't wait to sleep in. LOL. I have so many chores I want to get done this weekend now that fall has officially arrived. Need to start getting sweaters out and to the cleaners before it gets really cold.

Well off to figure out what's for dinner.

Cindy that quilt is just beautiful!You ARE on a roll...now that the cooler weather is here you'll get lots more done. I always seem to have so much more energy when it's cooler. Sharon's chocolate swap is going to be so much fun.

Cindy,
I'm doing the Glad Creations mystery quilt too! I have mine cut out and waiting for clue #2.

I'm planning on going to a mystery weekend in March. Hope I get to see snow and doing freeze to death in the process ;-)

oops! That should have been DON'T freeze in the process. Guess my fingers are tired tonight.

Cindy said...

So, how is the mystery so far. I really contemplated on doing and, that's why I waited until almost the end of October but then I couldn't stand it anymore. You will have to let me know how the retreat is. You might get to see snow in March. It seems like February is always the worst here.

Wow - what a beautiful quilt! I love the Chocolat fabrics! That must be the one you were seeking binding for. I can't wait for quilt market either. I got a few hints at the quilt shop yesterday but it's all very hush-hush.
