Today is Tuesday....

At my LPS on Saturday I saw some patterns which reminded me of a class I had started about 11 months ago at the lovely Nikki's Honeysuckle Stained Glass patchwork shop. Remember these......



Here is the post which shows the four of them. I hadn't finished them as I didn't have all the colours I needed to paint them so I got all the paints while I was at the shop and I actually finished painting AND I have nearly finished stitching one of them, she just needs her ballet slippers and her bullion roses on her wreath finished.
Next we have Coco's quilt finally finished but poor Coco doesn't have it yet, it's down at the LPS as she is going to do a class with it..... one day Coco will have it!

On the back I have put a piece of Holly Hobby fabric that I found HH was around when her mother was little so of course her mothers nick name was Holly Hobby and she still gets Hob for short sometimes


I have all the blocks finished on the Amy Butler quilt. I really shouldn't call it that as they aren't all AB fabrics just most of them are.....well I think I have finished unless I make another four blocks as I didn't get to use a couple of fabrics and some are favourites.....




Finally I must confess, the rest of my fabric purchases........
I am not absolutely sure what I am doing with them but I think some of them will be made into scrappy log cabins
These are Alexander Henry's and Prints Charming two young street....



And these are from the new Amy Butler range I think it's called Midwest or something similar...



Now that's what I have been doing I would love to hear what you have been doing.....

I am so glad all these prints are now the vogue. I am so glad you love them, but I hope so much that I stay quite remote from attatchment to them at this stage.
I can appreciate, but it is so nice not to be tempted.
I do have to confess to getting one panel of the very hungry caterpillar. After all a children's librarian has to have these things.....vbg.

Those teddybears are unbelievably sweet!!!! And the fabric you suggested would look fantastic in some scrappy log cabins - so fresh and colorful. Thank you for sharing!
