Wonderful Quilting Day

First off here is my new little baby machine. My quilting buddy Paula gave this to me for my B-day. I just love these little machines. I now have 3 and all from Paula. She knows my weakness for these little gems. This will move up to the shelf above my cutting table today to it's permanent place.


Yesterday I had a wonderful quilting day with my friend Stefanie. Stefanie is just getting started quilting and is doing it with gusto. She bought the accucut machine and I went over yesterday and cut out 2 quilt tops in no time flat. It made such a quick job of cutting we had time for fabric shopping and lunch out. There was an undiscovered quilt shop near her house we checked out and I found several items I just couldn't come home without. This coffee fabric was just too sweet to leave behind. As my Mickey cup shows it's a thumbs up. I have other coffee fabric and I'm sure something for the dinning room will come from this.

This is one of the tops I got cut out yesterday. I've been hoarding my oriental fabrics for a good while and was a bit hesitant to cut in to them, but with the accucut I jumped right in and now I'm ready to start.

And the second top all cut and ready to go.
As you can see it even removes the dog ears.

Always on the hunt for more oriental fabric
I found this at the quilt shop we stopped at. Just loved it.

2 very sweet little FQ I found at the quilt shop
It was a wonderful day and there was one other highlight. Stef discovered a great on line shop that we ordered a few things from. The shop is in her area so the owner let us do a pick up so I have a wonderful new honey bun and turnover from Moda to finish out my collection of Crazy 8's. I just love that set of fabric and can't wait to get started on that quilt. Well with all this fabric cut out I've not excuses to not be sewing. I have 2 new swaps to work on and need to get those patterns planned too. Too much sewing not enough time.
