The fabric enabler has struck again! Yesterday my sweet husband suggested that I ride along with him when he went to his morning rehearsal. Not too far from the rehearsal were three quilt shops, and I visited every one of them and got fabric at every single shop. Best of all, he was buying! It was an early birthday present--he knows what makes me happy.
I was looking to replenish my stock of black and white prints, and got 12 different fabrics, all 1/4 yard pieces. I also got two RWB pieces that will be great for Quilts of Valor. I had used the light one with the music notes before, and was very happy to find more of it yesterday. The stripe may become sashing and/or border on a QOV that my sister and I are making together.
As for usage, I finished up 30 brown bowtie blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and 6 Wonky Stars for Alycia's QOV block drive. I also made 4 Twinkle Star blocks for the Block Lotto, but they all came out a little small. Maybe I will keep them for myself or see if I can fix them to end up a smidge bigger. They are too pretty to not be used somewhere.
