The days of happily hand sewing binding while watching football are winding down. Both teams I was rooting for won yesterday so let's see what today brings. Actually I only was cheering for Baltimore because I have them in our pool (sorry Peyton Manning!).
I'm hoping to finish up Shabby Heart today. I am so enjoying being draped in this pretty UFO.
I have found that some of my fabric tastes have changed over the 3 years I wasn't quilting. I'm really into black & white prints now to pair up with my brights for Project Linus quilts so have been adding those. The modern fabrics are also calling my name (not the solids so much). I'm crazy about Kate Spain so am trying to add what I can find of her older lines.
I'm really most interested in seeing the movement of fabric in and out as opposed to the end result I guess, but I'm going to commit to a year of tracking and see. A 10 yard bolt of muslin for string blocks and a year end clearance parcel arrived this week to plump up my numbers. I'm not counting fabric used until the project is complete - more motivation to finish!
