I've been buying fabric again

At the last Guild meeting they were getting ready for the Annual Quilt Show and we were brainstorming to see what could be sold at the Guild booth.  Some of the suggestions were potholders, mugrugs with a mug to match, aprons, and colourful luggage handle wrappers.  So I went shopping to see what I could find.  I was thinking that if I made potholders I would make a block and put binding and a loop on it and call it a potholder.  I have lots of Insul Brite to go inside them.  So, of course, I had to go shopping. 

I also have this really nice Halloween fabric that could be used for something.

Christmas fabric was also on sale so I got a good selection of that for placemats for the guild and probably some potholders.  Time will tell what it is made into.


I think the only thing I am going to need in the near future will be some thread.

Work in Progress

I have been quilting my Kakabeka quilt this past week.  I'm not sure I enjoy this part of quilting but I do it if the quilt I am making is not too big.  It is 55x68 so I consider this to be slightly larger than a lap quilt.

The Thursday group got together again last week.  The first time since before Christmas.  We had so much catching up to do that we got started late with any sewing but we were able to make some pin cushion thread catchers.  So maybe next Thursday I will remember to take my camera and take some pictures of them being used.  They will save Joyce's house from being too messy with threads all over.
