Who’s with me?? Strawberry Fields Revisited

I now have my fill of precuts, fat quarter bundle, Frivol and charity Quilt Along kit in my sewing room.  At some point I will order some yardage, but I need to give my credit card a break.

Both of these packages arrived yesterday and I opened the biggest box first…



My feet were squirming a bit when I pulled this out of the box.  This is the Crossroads Quilt Along kit from Fat Quarter Shop.  It is their second (hopefully annual) charity quilt project that will benefit the March of Dimes.  They only ask for a $5/month donation – but the patterns will be available for free from their blog page.

I just want to unpack it and roll around in the fabric and lay it out on the bed …. but it won’t breathe any fresh air in my house until it is time.  Need to protect it from kids and cats.

The smaller box I received was the much anticipated Moda FRIVOLS.  I am not getting all of them (they are a monthly series of 7″ square cuts of fabric collections, packaged in a super cute tin and original pattern).  This is my third FRIVOL purchase.  But it will certainly be the first one that I actually quilt.


I think I will open this one up over the weekend (maybe tonight) and start to digest the pattern instructions.

Although I plan to work at least one day this weekend, I am taking Monday off from work to hang out with my kids.  I bought a coupon for services at the Mad Potter.  You can pick out some pieces of ready-to-paint pottery and have fun.  Kids need something to give Dad for his birthday and my kids LOVE to paint.

Hope you are excited about your weekend plans as well!  Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear if you are as addicted to this fabric as I am.
