OMG $8 a Yard for Batiks - Any and all

Olde City's Thanksgiving Sale... OMG Crazy..... My Batik stash has been running low - and "too grey" of what I did have.... (are you buying the excuse).

Here is just one of my piles - $8 a yard for all BATIKS - OMG heaven...

The bright happy pile.

Plus a novelty. Another friend had a boy. So, I'm off to make a baby boy quilt for Logan (I will not be using the pink). I've designed a quilt using Deb Tucker's V Block ruler.... I hope to post by the end of the week.

Flower Girl is Quilted

Well it has been crazy with commuting to the new job in CT.  As most of you know, I stay there in a temp apartment during the week and then head home on the weekends.  I get a decent about of sewing finished during the week, although lately I've been pulling some long days- with the shortened week it couldn't be helped.

In any event, that doesn't leave me much time to long arm but I finally got Flower Girl finished.  I used a new pantograph and I think it turned out FAB!

This is from Thimble Blossoms new pattern; Flower Girl.  I used a variety of FQs (20 for the flowers, 7 for the leaves, and another for the cornerstones.  It is very easy and a great stash buster.  It is the feature pattern for my December Stash Club at Pennington on Saturday, December 15th.
