WIP Wednesday and a Bad, Bad Me
Thirty-six scrappy stars are now on the design wall. These were started as BOMs from my local quilt shop about a year ago and are from the Jo Morton pattern, Scrappy Stars. I am now auditioning setting squares. Today I played with a few print fabric squares. I may look through books for a simple pieced block to try out next. I have LOTS of Jo Morton fabric!!! This quilt will be for DS2. His townhome has lots of browns and golds so I think he'll like it. On the Quilts-For-Sons front, the strippy snowball/Hawaii-flavored quilt for DS1 finally has some border fabric purchased!!! Photos on another day.
The bad news is, while I was shopping for the aforementioned border fabric, these three books followed me to the register! I was so sure that I had Folk-Art Quilts but when I wanted to find it the other day, of course I couldn't!!!! So I may or may not have two copies---time will tell. I sure hope the rest of you quilt bloggers do that same thing--buy the same book twice. Humor me and say you do! The other two books just had some neat, neat things in them and as I approach the done-done stage of several quilts, I am chomping at the bit to find some new projects. Kansas City is still experiencing some very gorgeous weather. 50s and 60s with lots of sunshine. Hope your part of the world is nice too.
