Fabric, Fabric, Everywhere

I have been cutting fabric this month. Not much sewing but that is another story. I cut all of the fabric for Bonnie Hunters mystery quilt "Double Delight"

I bought a LARGE Tumbler Block acrylic template at the quilt show in Chicago last fall. I have cut blocks to make another QOV quilt. Ruthie at bought the next size down has already cut her blocks and has pictures on her site.

Toby and Ashley came for dinner last night and their list of 75 things is completed.(for the quilts mentioned below.)
Tait came by today after work and his list is finished too. One of my sisters', Louann, was the first one finished with her list. Four down and nine to go. Each person is supposed to give a list of 75 favorite things/and or sayings from when they where children to present age.

I bought a pattern called "It's All About Me". I have started cuting the blocks for this. I have over 200 novelty fabrics. I plan on making 12 of these quilts. I'm calling them BigBoy/BigGirl quilts. For my three sons, daughters (wives of two sons), three sisters, brother, husband and grandson. They are all quilts for adults, my soon to be 14 grandson. I am in love with all of the novelty fabric avaiable. I got a package in the mail today from
z& A total of 23 half yards of fabric all novelties. I need more feminine type fabrics and faith type fabrics. If you know of some that you noticed on line at a shop please let me know.

Ruthie and I were supposed to have our BOM from
quilts done by tonight. I got a reprieve until next week because of bad weather. Ruthie's are done mine were lost and I found the blocks today. I have two blocks to cut and put together, besides sewing rows together. I do not know where I put the last two blocks thus, my quilt will only have eleven blocks. I'm not very good at designing quilts even with eq5. So, Ruthie came up with a layout of my blocks on point that I think is going to look really good. I have to have the top done at least by next Wednesday.

I'm planning on making my sil a Wizard Of Oz quilt. I dug out the fabrics that I have purchased. Now, I have to decide how to put all of the fabrics together. There are three lines of different WOOz fabrics. it will be a fun quilt. I'm going to either make it two sided or make two different quilts. I'll keep you posted.

I am way behind with reading blogs that I'm tracking and I'm new to Drankland and haven't logged on to it either. I've been reading instead of doing anything else. When I'm interested in a book I can't hardly put it down.

Until next time be safe, warm, and enjoy each day.
