A New Project!

It seems like forever since I started a new project. I'm almost finished with the doll quilts. And the Blog Tour this week is making me desperate to try some new, graphic designs. Alas, I have one more commission quilt to get done. It's okay though, I am really excited for this one.

A few months back one of my old book club friends contacted me. She's moved away and is now expecting her first baby. I was lucky, she said she loved my style and asked if I would make her a quilt. She gave me free reign after asking for something bold, bright, modern, and just a bit girly. I knew immediately what I wanted to do. This is my initial fabric pull, and more to join in soon.

Tomorrow I have the WHOLE day to myself. Hubby is taking the girls out, then the Calgary Modern Quilt Guild is meeting. Nothing but sewing, and maybe a little nap. Now, if only would come clean my house for me today so I don't feel obligated to do that too.

no sense in cleaning, it will only get dirty again. A sewn seam stays sewn!!!

Ooh! A whole day to yourself and you get to meet with modern quilting friends and sew? Sounds fantastic!

I look forward to the first Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild sewing day. We just had our 2nd meeting last night.
