Stash Building #3 & Project Quilting

Hey Guys,

Have you ever look at your husband (or significant other) and thought to yourself, “I am so lucky!”  Well that is how I felt when I came home and saw a package at my door.  After all, he is my fabric sponsor and he did say…”Get that fabric, you deserve it!”  He’s amazing *sigh* … ;0)   Sorry guys…back to the fabric.Image

Do you remember the picture above?  I blogged about it in this post.  The quilt above is for my friend Tasha, well actually her son.  She has the sweetest, happiest, beautiful baby boy who desperately deserves a quilt.  Well guess what? In my package I got the fabric I need to finish the baby’s car seat quilt.  I am going to use this plaid fabric for the binding.  I think it is going to be so pretty! What do your think?


I also got all this fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop.  The collection is called Lobster Shore Thing by Emily Herrick.  Emily blogs over at Crazy Old Lady.  The fabric below is to make him some extra goodies.  I will share once I am done.


In other news:

I have been working all day on my Project Quilting.  Project Quilting is a contest I have entered and if you scroll down to the right you will see the button.

ImageThis contest is very similar to Project Runway.  Twice a month during the “season” Kim posts a challenge.  The current challenge is a square within a square.  I have been hard at work all week!  This process has really pushed my limits but I think it will be worth it!  I hope you take some time and check it out! Until next time, Sew Pretty!
