More Time in my Sewing Room...

When I visited my Skinny Sister at the beginning of the summer she picked out some fabrics from the Lucy's Crab Shack line for a table runner.  I hope to see her again next week and I have her table runner ready.  I love these fabrics from Moda by Sweetwater.  I purchased additional fabric for a t-shirt quilt I am working on.

My sister recently asked if I would make a quilt for a couple of friends celebrating their 25th anniversary... in August.  She wanted red and brown.  I am giving her this quilt from my stash.

Here are additional blocks for the Great Granny Along.  I went to our small JoAnn fabrics yesterday.  They are moving to a larger space next door to their current location and were having a close out sale.  I grabbed up a few DSQ bolts and they rang up at an additional 33% off. 

I am getting ready for Quilt Camp with my Iowa friends.  I think I will take my Grannies to work on.  I can't wait to see all the girls!

Did you get the Memo?...

I am running to JoAnn Fabrics this morning because I just discovered "Premium Quilting Fabrics" are 40% off.  {EDIT:  Premium Quilting fabrics are not on sale in-store until July 22, however they are on sale on-line.}This includes Denyse Schmidt Quilts fabrics, and as you know I am loving them.  If you do not have a local JoAnn you can shop on-line.  Use promotion code PAI228 and get free shipping with a minimum $35 purchase.

Here is Great Granny Block #3.  I am hooked!

It is going to be HOT in central Indiana.  It is a good day to stay in my sewing room!

Great Granny Along...

I managed to find some time this morning to work on my first two blocks for the Great Granny Along.

I love the Denyse Schmidt Quarters I ordered from JoAnn Fabrics.

And here are some Denyse Schmidt scraps rescued from my scrap bin.

Friday the 13th...

Friday the 13th is shaping up to be a pretty good day. 

The Denyse Schmidt fabric I mentioned in this post arrived from JoAnn - OH HAPPY DAY.  I can't wait to cut into this fabric.  I have decided to participate in Lori & Jodi's Great Granny Along.  It should be fun.  You can find details here.

I got in a very nice 5 mile walk this morning.  You see, yesterday I had my annual physical and my blood pressure is up and so is my weight {like I didn't know that}.  Once again, I am eating less and exercising more.  I have to go back to the Dr in 6 weeks and I am working on a notable difference. 

On my walk I finished Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.  I loved this book and did not want it to end.   I would definitely recommend this book if you have not read it.

Lastly, somehow Kate Spain found my little blog post about Chopsticks quilt I made from her Terrain line... and commented.  The fact that she took time to leave me a note brings a big ol' smile to my face.  How nice of her!

I may find joy in very  simple things, but today seems to be going my way, and it is still early in the afternoon!

Another Chopsticks...

I had so much fun making Julie Herman's {Jaybird Quilts} Chopsticks pattern the first time around... so I made another.  It is pieced together and it is ready for the quilter.  Here is a quick shot.  {I could work on my pressing skills... as well as my photography skills!}

The fabric is Terrain by Kate Spain in fun, funky colors I don't usually choose.

Want to Share my Love Affair...

Based on my recent posts, you know I am in love with Denyse Schmidt Quilts Collection fabric.  Well today I found a great deal for all who feel the same.  Currently, at JoAnn Fabrics, Premium Quilting fabric is 30% off.  And as an added bonus, you can get 15% off your total purchase by using the code DNJ189.  {This offer is good until July 7.} 

So, like me, you could have these new 4 great prints in one yard to add to your collection.  I ordered this one...
and this one...
and this one!
OH HAPPY DAY!  And there are several other DSQ fabrics to choose from!

Regularly $12.99, with 30% off they are on sale for $9.09 and with the additional 15% off they will cost you about $7.73 each.  I ordered my fabrics on-line. {It is sooo stinkin' hot, I am refusing to go out.}  I have not seen them at our super JoAnn store.  This means I have not touched the fabric.  I am hoping it will be as nice as other DSQ fabrics I have purchased at this big box store.
