Well. I spend a lot of time in my favorite café, but I promise, it's productive. I take things I, um, might or might not have purchased this afternoon, and I turn them into projects!
Aside from the Sugar Pop, which is going toward the Lolly Fields quilt backing, the new fabrics are for a Garden Fence quilt. I've been stash-building toward something bright, splashy, and sashed in white. (Or Kona Snow. You know how much I love Kona Snow.) Then a couple of days ago I repinned this picture and it has been percolating since.
Tonight, in the middle of sewing my bear claws (4 down, 77 to go) I began wildly pulling all my brights out of my stash. Fabric flew everywhere! Mr Poppleton was consulted. (And overruled. Sorry, honey.) I took a this and a that and a whatsie and a hoodle and came up with this!
Some Loulouthi, some Meadowsweet, some random Michael Miller, a Kaffe Fasset, and a random I found today while I was attempting to sign up for a quilting class. (I am GOING to do a class in the new year.)
So! I have six new episodes of Community, thanks to my gorgeous friend Kate, a tall glass of ice-cold water, and my schmick new rotary cutter. I'm going to cut this quilt top out tonight! WOO. This is the life.
Time to get my feet moving!
