Heather Ross is selling fabric on spoonflower

I was reading through Heather Ross`s blog and she has fabric for sale on spoonflower. I know it`s expensive, but you can`t find it anywhere without paying an arm and a leg ... so I thought I would share just in case someone has some extra $$ lying around.

Denyse Schmidt should do this with her free market fancy line ... someone should tell her ...

I got distracted

Normally, I am the type of person that works only on one thing until it's finished ... and then starts the next thing. Now this doesn't mean that I don't want to start something new = in fact it's quite the opposite.
If I had a choice, I think I would be working on 100 things all at once, but, I don't think I would ever get anything done that way. So, I try really hard to focus and finish each project before I start a new one.

Well .. I have been distracted from this little rule, and I started a new quilt.

Here are the fabrics I started with:

zig zag quilt fabrics

Then, following this really cool tutorial over on Bee square blog, I have been making a zig-zag quilt.

This is after doing the strips:


Then, I cut them into smaller squares:


And then ... I had to try and lay out the smaller squares ... I NEED MORE ROOM !! My husband hates when I do this, because I always steal the kitchen table. I suppose I could try and do it on the floor, but ... I don't want to:

I am not really sure how to rotate these pictures ... does anyone know how to do that?? Advice would be appreciated : )

This quilt actually has gone together pretty fast. I will show more pictures of this one, and the single girl quilt when they are done.

Ta ta for now,


Please try and ignore the mess in the background .. I have issues with keeping my sewing area (aka my dining room) clutter free.
