Seriously is it May? It feels more like October here. We even had a frost last night, thank goodness I have been too lazy and have not had time to put any plants in. I know it would have been a disaster for my tomatoes.....
I cleaned out my fabric shelves and can see all those pretty fabrics in there! The solids still need my attention but I will get to that another day.

As I have been cutting strips I am also adding to the scraps that I will give away on Friday. At this point it looks like I will easily have 2 bunches to give away, maybe even 3! If you would like a chance to win some of my scraps go here and leave a comment. Part of the reason I want to give them away is that I feel all my quilts are starting to look the same.

I cut out 206 ten inch strips and it took a long time. I still have to cut out the low volume strips. That will go much faster as I am only using about 12 different fabrics.

This is our raffle block for the Lancaster Modern Quilt Guild next month. It was fun to make and I look forward to seeing them all together. The requirements were a blue background and a yellow star.

So do you think this looks "manly"? This is a bee block and you know for sure it is not mine! I had a hard time finding any brown in my stash.

Now I need to put all 206 of those fabrics back on my newly organized shelves!



  1. What's wrong with all of your quilts looking the same? I love them all!

  2. organized and so pretty. Mine are a jumble right now, and worse I don't have room in the drawers for the new fabric. Can't cut into it, can't store it. Oy! What's a fabric hoarder to do? LeeAnna

  3. Nice work getting all those bits organized. I love your quilts and it is because of the fabrics you use. All those bright and cheerful colors.

  4. Rain, rain, go away...ugh. I love the fabric choices you make. Your colors are always so happy. Great job organizing your shelfs. Judie

  5. It is great to sort out fabric shelves. It seems to inspire and sometimes lead to rediscovering fabrics. Your shelves look great.
    Lovely work on the star block. I hope they are all as cheerful as yours.


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
