Ginger Blossoms... Black & White... and Being Behind

I went to my favorite LQS this week... Quilt Arts... http://www.quiltartsonline.com/ I love this shop! It opened last November and is already a hub of activity among quilters. You walk in and are just wowed by color and texture and pattern. When I walked in the door last week I was greeted with the Ginger Blossom line by Sandi Henderson (http://www.portabellopixie.typepad.com/) WOW! I love this line! I bought 6 lovely fat quarters... but alas they are now packaged up ready to be mailed off next week to a friend. Sigh! I think I must return and buy some for my very own! They are just to wonderful to do without!

I also bought a few black and white prints. I have some in my stash... received some from an online friend... and had bought some online. I am going to make my nephew a quilt for his High School graduation. I am using the Turn Twenty Again pattern and have been cutting fabric this weekend. I plan to start sewing tomorrow. I think I may add a small border of a single bright color for a pop.

Bonnie at Quiltville has posted step 5 of her current mystery quilt... Orange Crush... I am woefully behind! I have step 1 and 2 done... did a bit of step 3 and got frustrated... haven't even started step 4 must less 5! Oh well... I will press on (as well as cut on... sew on... LOL! sorry bad joke!) and get caught up one day!

I have been terribly unmotivated in the area of quilting the past few weeks, so I am thrilled to be back in the land of fabric, thread, rulers, rotary cutters etc. The slump has passed and I am ready to get going again!

Those are sweet fabrics, very summery. I bought a few pieces of Valori Wells fabrics because the bright fresh colors were irresistible & I love the Posh line too. I have been half- heartedly collecting B& W fabrics for a B,W & red quilt-someday!
