Sunday Stash on Friday

Work-in-Progress Girl is having a give away so I must do a post! Of course if I do a post I will have to admit I purchased fabric. Quandary!

I know magazines are not on the fabriholic fast list but they lead to fabric wants. I purchased the Sea Glass quilt kit from Fat Quart Shop. Love it! So not my colours but the Pat Sloan Art Gallery Fabrics have the best feel to them. Soft and silky! Did I say love! Oh yeah!
And while I was there, 2 jellyrolls of Little Black Dress 2 fell into my cart. Again saw a picture in a magazine of a nine block. Again fell in love. Wanted it! Now I have it! I must say it makes me so happy!

So I guess while it is still March I will purchase the Tula Pink Workshop for Craftsy so it is all in the same month! April will start off clean and clear!

Triangle Quilt Along

Do I need another project? Do I need another unfinished project? Do I need my head examined? One of these requires a yes. I have the ruler and was looking forward to finding a project for my Kate and Birdie Winter's Lane cake squares. This will be perfect. I was going to do HST's but this will be wonderful.

WIP Wednesday - March 26

The last month has flown by. Nothing like being sick to lose chunks of time! I was to have done my Bee Blocks last weekend, but did not. So sorry bee mates! I had totally forgotten about a charity quilt I had promised myself I would make. Friends are doing the "Ride for Cancer" and I really wanted to donate a quilt. Birds, bikes, and buildings, yes! A riding quilt!
Finished! It started out as a baby quilt. But the colours were not screaming baby at me, so, added a couple of borders and ta!da!, a lap quilt. The striped border is also the backing. Thank goodness there was enough! No pieced back here taking up extra time.
Tried quilting with straight lines off the edge of the quilt, I think because of the stripes.  I like it, but I think I would have preferred around more.
And bonus! It is all from my stash. The back is repurposed (stolen) from another quilt, but all is good. I had two backs for that quilt anyways!?!
On to the bee blocks!
