Friday Night Sew In - Results

Friday Night Sew In happened last night and i was amazed at some things I  got accomplished. 

Finished putting the pieces together on the Marshmallow Brochette Quilt that I was making for my daughter. I also spent some time getting the back done. I just love making the backs as interesting as the tops!  
My beautiful assistants and great view!
I also got a TON of cutting done and some BowTie's created for the Scrappy BowTie Block Swap. Ive decided to utilize 5 fabrics and make 5 blocks. Swapping 20 and keeping 5 for myself. I might make more but I'll have to see how far I get!

Caught the bug ..... Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-long

I caught it! and its got me badly!

The farmers wife quilt-a-long hosted by Amanda and Angela, where you make 2 blocks out of the book a week.

A blog posting at Pleasant Home had me super excited. She was so organized about the process that I felt I could totally handle this project!

I sure do hope I can do this! I wont have the book until later this week (shipping ugh). But

But now for my DILEMMA......

I'm thinking of using these fabrics combined with a solid.. maybe white? I don't know what solid to use... Any ideas? White, snow, charcoal, or other?

Kona Snow?
Kona White?
Help me out!!

Sunday Thought

by smilesdaball

The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

A righteous man may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all.

Psalm 34:17-19

Crash not burn

After leading the crafts and activities for VBS camp, Im exhausted! I was incognito for the last two weeks trying to make sure alot of the things were taken care of, my leaders were trained and ready, and that I would survive. It ended up being an AWESOME week with the kiddos, with God giving us many blessings.

On the quilting front, not alot got done. I did cut 100 2" strips of muslim for one of the crafts (the kiddos got to dye the strips and keep them). I did manage to get some fabric shopping in!!

I have no clue who or what this fabric is, but i love the two together:

 What do you think of the yellow, white, grey combo?

I also got a stash of Kona White and Kona Snow... seems im learning these are essential colors to have on hand.

Oh and I did sign up for 2 bees: Scrappy BowTie Swap; and NuBee Bee. Im very excited to give them a chance and see if im cut out for the world of Flickr Bees. 

I have also been working very hard at the Skill Builder Series, and while a new tutorial is up (i havnt done yet) I'm pretty much caught up...
