I still need to cut the side triangles before I can start putting these blocks together into a top. I plan on adding a pieced strippy border too. I think I am going to like this one.
Besides the applique blocks I brought along on vacation, I also got to take a mini shop hop with my sister. We hit three different quilt shops, and I made small purchases at two of them. It was truely a case of self control, as there was so much I would have liked to buy. But I limited myself to a bundle of eight 30's reproduction print fat quarters at one shop and a dozen miscellaneous fat quarters(at $1 each!) at the other. As a bonus, my sister bought me a charm pack that I was almost drooling over. It is all Moda fabrics from the line Holly Jolly Christmas. I can't wait to make something from those!
