Weekends and Friends

I finished sewing the top to the surprise quilt today.  It turned out to be king sizeish.  All I need to do now is find a pretty back for it.  I made it out of 12 1/2 inch squares of floral pinks.  Ooops that all the info I can share.

Last week at shopping spree with Carla and Joyce I had a chance to buy a little fabric before it is come out.  This bundle is posy by Aneela Hoey for Moda.  Joyce at surprised me with this.  Oh it is so super cute.  Just love the little girls.  Joyce is so sweet and always thinking of others.  You really should go and visit her blog.  She has made the cutest rug and out of t-shirts.  Super Cute.  Thank you so much Joyce I just love my new fabric.

This line is Sweet Cakes.  (Riley Blake)  I love the hearts and the strawberry's together.  

This is Durham Anew by Brenda Riddle for Lecien.  The floral's are just beautiful I have ordered this fabric and it should arrive Februray/March 2013.  Boy that just seems like forever.

Friday was a day of sewing and quilting with Carla.  On Saturday I had to work until 2ish.  Sharon picked me up from work and we went to Quilt Festival and dinner.  It was so much fun.  You know I just do not think you can ever get enough of all that goodness.
