Look at this awesome fabric I found! I LOVE aqua and red. I found this yardage at the discount fabric store a couple towns north of us. It was only $6 a yard and I bought all five yards they had. It was a splurge, but I think it will either be a great backing or a possible border for the Farm Girl Vintage Sampler I am working on.
The aqua dots were precious too, but I only bought three yards of it. I tried to show a little self-control which was not easy!
I got some half yards of these three because they were also $6 a yard, so $3 for half yards is a great bargain and I need more yellows.
The reason I went up to the fabric store was to get a backing for my Baby Chicks top and I found this--
which is PERFECT and only $6 a yard! I need to embroider the legs and eyes before I can quilt it, but I love the backing.
I finished binding the apron block for the Snapshots BOM at Fat Quarter Shop http://fatquartershop.blogspot.com/p/snapshots-quilt-along.html I am making my blocks into mini quilts.
Here is the backing with the label/corner hanger.
Today was my last day of work for this school year! I am so ready for some home time. I came home and got caught up on my Farm Girl Vintage blocks. This is the Baking Day Block. It went together very easily. I am making the six inch blocks.
This is also a Farm Girl Vintage block--the Butter Churn Block. I did not make the flying geese blocks in Lori's method, instead I just used the rectangles and squares method as it is the easiest for me. Here is the link for information about this sew along http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com
I also made my last two blocks for the Charm Square Sampler Quilt Along. This is block 8 http://moderntraditionquilts.blogspot.com/p/charm-square-quilt-along-2015-block.html
and block 9. There are only nine blocks for this quilt and they measure 16 inches each. I am going to turn mine into a bright, summery tablecloth for my kitchen. I am going to work on piecing this top and finding a backing for it. With my summer here, I will be spending a lot of time in my sewing room trying to work on my many UFOs!
Thank you all for your hugs and condolences about our dog, Dora!
