Happy happy mail from my awesome friend, quilt master and general go-to girl, Amy. Anna Maria Horner Bohemian - a HUGE stack, templates so I can make this quilt (most likely not quite as neatly as Amy's) and (hidden from you all) a load of Liberty from Target goodies. I'm not ashamed to admit I used a really big cuss word when I opened this package. The one that rhymes with duck. It was said quite a few times, in sheer excitement. And before you try sneaking over to her place and stealing her - she's my friend. Hands off.
Fabric porn in swatch form from Kaufman fabrics (honestly, these quilters linens are beyond awesome. I need some in my life and as they're solids I can justify it, even as part of Stash Pact. Oh yay!)
A single girl progress report...
I'm 5 full blocks down, and the rest are in various states of completion. Remember, I'm trying to stay ahead of the rest of you guys so I can answer questions that might come up. Don't be panicking if you're not even at the cutting stage. Just work through at your own pace. And please ignore the fact that I'm using white thread on a dark purple background fabric. It was what was threaded in the machine and I was too lazy to change it. Go shoot me. If the sun ever comes out and I remember to turn my camera off of the artsy setting Miss G has had it set on I will get some pics of my blocks so far. They're slightly wonky in places, but I'm not going to lose sleep over it. It's an achievement in itself that they're blocks at all.
The first episode of Single Girl - a quiltalong, season 1, is showing here. With all details of future episodes. Next week Megan talks about piecing the rings. Fun fun fun. (no, really - that bit is fun!)
I can't believe it's almost Friday. Where did the week go?
