It's Here!

The box of fabric from Quiltmaker finally arrived today. Sorry I can't show you what's inside the box just yet.  Take if from me, it's pretty.

Now wish me luck on getting this quilt done within their timeline.  Quiltmaker is giving us until August 23rd to get the quilt done and back to them.  Well, I have news for them.  Mine is going in the mail by the 15th of August because after that I'll be away from my sewing machine for a week.  And the 15th is just 17 short days away.  I feel a vacation day or two coming on.

I can't tell you how hard it is to sit here at my desk and not touch that fabric.  It is sitting next to me where I can stare ( I mean occasionally glance) at it though.  Five o'clock where are you?

The pattern we were given is printed in black and white since each of the eight people making a quilt will have different fabric.  Quiltmaker did a terrific thing.  They cut a small square of each fabric and pasted it to the corresponding fabric number on the pattern.  So trying to figure out where they want each fabric is no longer an issue.  Thank goodness.

My next post will probably be of 3" churn dash blocks that I'll be using as my leader enders while I'm making this top.  I'm hoping to get a few more of those in the done pile.

Happy sewing,

Julie
