Stash Fun

I spent some time yesterday just looking at my fabric (and petting it, a little...). I rounded up all my black and white prints and put them together in a tub- don't they look great together?

I also finished pressing my Amy Butler fat quarters. They are so happy!

I also finished up another swap quilt that I am going to be mailing today. It's super cool! Once she gets it I'll post pictures of it. I almost didnt' want to send it away!

I've been following the story of Natasha Richardson. It's so sad. Everyone, PLEASE wear a helmet when you are cycling, rollerblading, skiing, or riding a motorcycle. The helmet is designed to absorb the impact that otherwise is absorbed by your brain. A helmet can't absorb all of the impact, and if you have a blow to the head while wearing one you should still see a doctor. But even a seemingly minor impact can rupture blood vessels in your head and cause your brain to start swelling. Helmets are proven to reduce injuries to the brain. Adults need to wear helmets too! I know helmets aren't very "cool", but they are a heck of a lot cooler than being dead.


  1. I was grouping my blacks, whites, reds and pinks last night too! I think Sophie inspired all of us w/that black/white/red quilt of hers. And I put all of my Midwest Modern together 2 nights ago. I love that line!

  2. Nice eye candy. I've been adding to my stash (when I shouldn't but...). Don't those Amy Butler's look lovely!

    Happy Stitching...Ann :)
