Oh! It's Friday!!!

Finally.....I have been waiting for this day for several weeks, no, months.  While it is not payday Friday, it is VACATION Friday.  I will be on vacation next week and I am thrilled.  I only have a list of 15 or 20 things I need to get done today before I go!  No sweat, right!

Just so happens my vacation week is Quilt Market, MQS and KCMQG Meet Up week!  I chose the dates well.  Amy Butler is in the house on Tuesday at Nelson Atkins, sponsored by Harpers.  Denyse Schmidt is in the house next week sponsored by my favorite Bernina store!  Weeks Ringle is in the house for the May KCMQG meeting.  Jacquie Gering will be here for market and she is giving a class on the Flip and Stitch method in her new book "Quilting Modern".  Yes I am in Quilty Heaven!  Vacation will definitely include hours of sewing and quilting.  I think on Sunday I will not leave my machine.

I have been working on Some things.....this is my entry for Round One of the My Precious QAL on Flickr.  This will be first up on the quilter this week. I love how it turned out.  The pattern is Out Fox the Fox by Lizzy House and the fabric is my precious Lush by Erin Michael.  The solid is an organic cotton I got on sale from Marmalade Fabrics.  Can't wait to finish.

I have also finished my Bleachers quilt top that I made from Habitat and some Kona solids.  This is a new pattern from Empty Bobbin Studio.  I did not test this pattern for Shea Henderson...

 but I did test Crosshatch.

Well enough for now.

I have to get this day

started so I can get it done!

Enjoy your Friday!!

  1. Have a great vacation, Paula! Sounds like you've got some fun planned. You've been busy sewing, you quilts look great! That pop of yellow in the Crosshatch binding is pretty cool.
