Well, not really "lifes" necessities, but I did need a few things to finish one of my quilts. I've showed it before, Sisters Choice blocks, and I've made the decision to set this on point. I know, the responses were about 50/50 for on point vs straight set. I do agree with those who said that I will loose the look of the block by putting this on point. However, I didn't make this because I loved this block, I made it because I did a 9 patch swap and needed something that I could work them into. So now I need a variety of shirtings for the setting triangles......and it was the first day of shop hop......and we needed office supplies.......so...........
I picked up a few on our travels today. DebS was the driver, I was the co-pilot. Some stores didn't have reproductions....so I picked up a few of these.
Have you seen Edyta Sitar's new book? Laundry Basket Quilts. Wow, is all I can say. I just had to start adding some of these neutral batiks into my sewing basket. Immediately all of the above became this.
A big pile of laundry. Once I get them all pressed, I can get my quilt together.
And who could resist this? It's perfect for a medallion quilt.
Fabettes, we finished our day on a high note in your shop, you are the best!
Off to bed, it's a work day tomorrow..........they all can't be like today!
