I'm linking up late to the party today because one of my favoritest people came for a visit. My quilting sensei, K! And to make things even more awesome, the temps are finally starting to rise above freezing, and everything teamed up to make this weekend super awesome. (Yay!)
And, because I miss K's invaluable quilting advice and assistance, I immediately dragged her to the fabric store to help me pick out a fabric that would make friends with my January Stash Bee blocks.
I think this will do nicely. I had expected a massive search for it, but we walked in, and within two or three bolts, had located this one. Not bad, not bad.
I heard a rumor that IKEA was discontinuing their super popular large scale text fabric. (Thanks for the warning, Sarah!) While I think this is a ridiculous idea--why would they do that???--I happened to visit Chicago last week and made a trip to pick up some yardage. I only cut three yards, mostly because I was trying to show restraint, but I figure I'll get two baby quilt backings out of it, so that's good, right?
And because I have two littles with birthdays in the very near future, some truck fabric was in order. I'll be making them pillowcases for their beds. This set is for Banzo.
And this set is for Lito. I'll also be appliqueing them some t-shirt goodness and making some other party decor. Oh, the trucks. (So many trucks.)
These are my spoils for the week. I'm linking up with Sunday Stash, this week hosted by Alisa at A Stitch in Between!
