2013-05-13 11.41.48Well I managed to get 2 more diamonds completed the last few days.  I finished the blue one during the guild meeting Tuesday and the pink one last night after we got home from camping.  Two more diamonds and I can put the next row together.  Unfortunately I need to put this aside for a little while so I can finish a cross stitch piece that is a present.  I had started 2 pieces for my cousins twin for Christmas and just ran out of time to complete them.  I have 1 more part to finish on the second piece and then I can put them both together.

I passed out the challenge fabric for the block exchange at our guild meeting last week, and now I need to figure out what my 2 blocks are going to be.  I can’t get additional fabrics until I pick my blocks though.  I also need to go shopping to get some fat quarters for the fat quarter exchange.  They are due at our June meeting, so I need to get busy!

I am planning on going to Joann’s tomorrow to get some batting so I can finish some quilts.  I’d like to work on the red, white and blue quilt for donation at guild.  I also want to get my first hexagon quilt ready to be hand quilted.  I’ve committed to putting it in our quilt show in October, so I need to get started working on it!  I’ll finish the test piece once the hexagon one is done.

We had a speaker at guild last week that owns a quilt shop, Quilts & Sew Forth.  Of course they brought products to sell.  I don’t usually find anything that I want to buy, but I saw that they had a charm pack of Fossil Fern.  100 charms for $27!!  I could not pass up that deal!!!  Don’t know what I’m going to do with it yet, but it’s sitting here and ready to use for something!
