I got some goodies this week. I really fell in love with Puctuation. There's a Black Colorway in the pack that i think will look so cute. Since the quilt I made Logan has numbers i thought i would make Eli's letters. Of course after i bought the charms i saw that they also sell alphabet panels...so i may be purchasing one of those as well. Im making 2 full size quilts, one for each boy. In the meantime I have alot of quilting to do. I have 3 sandwiches ready and waiting. I have a little lap quilt that i pieced the other day and decided I wanted a paisley flower type thing. None of my quilts are crazy creative lately. I start making it and they end up looking the same and sorta old fashioned. I am working within my means. For instance this quilt cost nothing extra. I had all the stuff to finish these except the batting. I used a soft sheet for the backing and binding on the one im working with.

I've been revamping things on my blog and decided I wasn't comfortable having all my personal pictures/feelings etc that I used to have on the blog one and the same with my quilts, fabric etc. 

I know I know.  I just have alot of emotion dear diary stuff on that one and thought wow I used to really expose myself!  So I have a vent blog now and a quilt/craft diversion blog.

I am currently working on a pinwheel quilt for my aunt.  Not much in the way of modern quilting.  I did get a new book called Stackable Curves.  It was an interesting concept.  You make a simple block then cut a curve on two blocks and then sew together.  It really made it look cool. 

We've been super busy and not alot of quilting time.  I'll try to carve out some time today do for the tedious pressing and trimming of hst's.
