I celebrated my 28th birthday on Wednesday. I had to work. The mister had to work. It felt like a regular day. But then I tracked a package I had ordered the previous week and it was scheduled to be delivered on my birthday. Hip, hip! I ordered some yardage and a turnover of Figgy Pudding to add to my small stash.
I didn't learn about Figgy Pudding as early as the rest of you so I've been searching high and low for shops that still have some of it left.
I'm using Momo's Odyssea for the Jellyroll Quilt Along with Moose on the Porch Quilts. I bought solid Kona cotton in green, brown, and cream for the backing, sashing, and binding. When I ordered the Figgy Pudding, I decided to buy an extra yard of some Odyssea to supplement the quilt somewhere when we're done with all the blocks.
Yesterday, I stopped by my sister's house and was as giddy as a schoolgirl when I opened her gift. There was a new quilt book with really fun quilts for kids;
a quilt journal,
complete with blank pages for sketching
and graph paper for layouts;
some blackboard material for making chalkboard pillows for my two kiddos;
a scrapbook page for inspiration on a family tree quilt (we tossed around a lot of ideas for putting that one together);
and last, but certainly not least, a 24-piece fat quarter pack to make this kite quilt from my new book!
There's some Blush, Bloom & Grow, and others that I don't know the names of.
Thanks, Hawl! You made my day!
The only downside of my birthday was that my back went out and I haven't been able to stitch an inch since Sunday! I'm dying to make some more progress on my Life Is What You Make It quilt as well as finish off the blocks for my Swirling Stars quilt.
