Getting ready for a little local Sew Fest coming in July.
I love having a new project or two
all picked out and ready to work on.
Went to my trusty local library, which happens to be a quilter's heaven.
Lots of great quilt books to check out.
So I pulled my favorite off the shelf. (for the umpteenth time)
Dare to Be Square by Boo Davis.
It's one of those books that I read over and over again.
I'm ready to bust out a quilt now.
Just need to narrow the field a bit.
They are all SO cute. Love the sizes....60" x 70's.
I seriously can't decide.
Corrie fell in love with Storybook Toys by Jill Hamor.
a few months back.
She kept trying to reel me in and I wasn't biting.
But I finally picked up the book and I'm hooked!
Yes, let's make every single doll in there.
I want wool stuffing and wool hair and wool felt.
I want polka dot dresses and embroidered underwear.
The cat pillow?? Yes please.
And I don't even like cats, Shhhh!
The dollie purse? Yes, Yes, please!
Where do we start?
Scrap-Basket Beauties pulled me right in
with the cover photo.
They're all made with 2 1/2 " strips.
I love buying a jelly roll for a rainy day
and now I have plenty of ideas to work on.
Sew Fest 2013, right around the corner.....
Here I come......
