Yesterday was so dark and gloomy! I wanted something to brighten it up- so I cut out this!

I bought the rainbow fabrics from the "threadsofconversation" shop on Etsy. The white is a Moda Bella Solid. I am going to work on it at the retreat this weekend! I decided the Amy Butler bag was too complicated to work on at a retreat- I'd rather work on it when I am home and can concentrate on it.

I am still working my way through my stash, cutting fat quarters. It's been nice to fondle all my fabric! And it's a nice, cheerful project- especially in the gloominess we've had for the past 3 days. We are supposed to have another day of storms, possibly severe ones, and then it will get sunny tomorrow.

I am going to visit a new quilt shop tomorrow (well, new to me...)!! It's called QuiltPlay, and it's in a town about an hour east of me. I would never have known it was there, except that one of the "swap mamas" for the Doll Quilt Swap works there! That's why I am going tomorrow- she works on Wednesdays, so I get to meet her, too!


  1. Very cool! Those sat in my stash for so long, they look so much better in your quilt top! LOVE IT!

  2. What a lovely way to brighten a dreary day! Have fun on your outing.

    Cheers...Ann :)

  3. bring the Amy Butler bag stuff with you just in case. I can help you decipher it. Which one is it? I'm bringing the Nappy bag to make. Along with 3 you go girls, a camille and a quilt. Do you think I will get it all done?
