Yesterday, I received a package in the mail, sponsored by Downy. I had actually forgotten I had requested this kit for Quilts for Kids. My first thought when I opened the package and saw the fabrics: "Oh my---BOY colors!" LOL; quite a change from my pinks and purples! And, of course, I couldn't NOT dive right in to the quilt top; the kit came pre-cut, so I could literally jump right in.
After about 90 minutes, the top was together. VERY fast piecing!
The blue dot fabric on the left is the backing they sent along in the kit --- YUP! Backing included in the kit! I'll have to wait to quilt it until after I return Saturday night from picking up Candace from my parents. If you are interested in donating your time and piecing talent to help some children, here is the link to request a kit.
Recently, I received a package from Connecting Threads that I had ordered when they were having a close-out sale on their Twilight and Mama's Cottons lines. I simply couldn't resist!
Sadly, this will bring my Net Stash Used for the year to a DRASTIC low (specially after hitting the 50% sale at Hancock's this Saturday). But, speaking of that, I HAVE set a limit and shared that number with hubby. He didn't faint, so it must be okay :0)
Take a trip back down memory lane with me:
Date: April 29, 2008 (yes, two thousand EIGHT).
Fast-forward to present day:
Blocks done with hopes to have a finish Sunday---before February hits. It's not the UFO that I had scheduled for January, but----SO WHAT!?!?! It's a UFO that has been sitting for dang-near 2 years :0) Do I hear a woo-wooo???
Happy Thursday everyone :0)
