My 1st tower!











Sonnet Collection, by Moda! Look at all those fabrics - aren't they yummy! They are in the dryer right now, as I am typing this. I still have to get some background fabric, but here is my start on Gratitudes... Many of the prints are large, but I think it will work out together. And, I will definately have enough left over to do a 2nd quilt, maybe even a 3rd. Ohhhh, the possibilities!!!

That is my big quilt-y news for the day. I don't have tons of time for sewing lately so I've been sticking to some little projects to keep me entertained, while I put together some fabrics, pattern ideas for when I do have time to quilt. Oh - and the American Girl doll - I didn't buy it, it is one of my nieces!

Neat fabrics-- I keep a wish list of quilts I want to do, The Gratitudes quilt is on the list--- I don't know whether it's the pattern, the name or the designers I love better...
Enjoy your weekend--

How pretty - I am such a sucker for those fat quarter towers. Now that Moda is doing the 5" charm packs I'm finding I can usually be satisfied with those - thank goodness! Better for the budget and better for the stuffed shelves in my sewing room. Can't wait to see what you do with these!

Are those "oranges?" Very pretty assortment. (I have never purchased a tower before...) I have purchased a tower's worth of fat quarters, but no actual tower... 100 - they were a dollar each & it was my birthday money!

I had never heard "tower" before today... I feel like such an ignorant quilter!
