Oh about the 20 yards, Amazing Quilts was having a clearance sale.  40% off on a lot of Christmas fabric that wasn't Christmassy.  Great for some borders and backings.  soooooooo.........   Borders and backings I do not have in my stash.  so I would I have to buy it anyway.  so I get it when I find on sale.  I always, buy with  a project in mind.  I don't buy yardage just because. Almost always!  LOL... but this time, with projects in mind! 

New projects started:

Broomstick Hollow:  Cyndi and I are working on this together.  I am cutting up my oranges for it.   Oranges and blacks are all cut.  I can start sewing! all houses and pinwheels are done.  now for the stars! 
Blessings of Spring - rebloomed BOM:  blocks #1, 2, 3 done
A little bit of Boo:  everything cut
Mom'a 9 patch block qlt:  all blocks are done (100), all sashing sewn to one side, 2 complete rows sewn together. 
Wool tulip basket table mat:  all ready fused and ready to do the hand part
Shabby Roses Beauty Mystery Qlt:  center block prepped, and hand embroidery started. 

While up in the mountains I did a lot of sewing, or rather my Mom did.  I did some.   My mom wanted to start another qlt.  Yeah!!!  This is her third quilt.  she just wanted to sew to squares together.  big squares.  So I looked in my scrap drawers.  my 3 1/2" squares were over flowing.  I thought those are big.  we will use those!  Well, her idea and my idea of big are very different!  LOL... 

She sewed 900 squares into rows of 3. 

Then into 9 patches, then a strip of sashing to one side.  Now she has 100 blocks

 Before I left, she had 2 rows completely done.  I left the featherweight with her so she could sew until I could get up there again.  each row has 10 blocks.  she is doing a great job!!! 

I finished embroidering the Jan and Nov blocks from the Colorwork pattern.  Now I can sew them into little table hangings.  this is a big project!  I think I have 3 months done from the whole year of hangings.  but the next step will go quickly!  yeah!!! 


I also finished all the orange houses for the broomstick hollow quilt.  I just have to add stars and moons to these blocks.  cant wait to finish this!  I love this quilt!!! 

My Mom's neighbor is a quilter too.  she brought over a top she just finished!  isn't it pretty?  I love how the stars sparkle.  Thanks for sharing Mary!
