I can start making my Bible blocks any day now that my fabric has arrived! Yes! The mailman was here an hour ago and dropped it off! It always looks so much nicer sitting in front of you than it does in the catalogue pictures and this bunch of fabric is no exception!
If you're following the updates, then you may remember that I decided I'd use shades of yellow, orange, blue, purple, red, white, and brown for this sampler. I spent some time
drooling over browsing through the Quilter's Candy selections at Connecting Threads when it was on sale at 40% off and this is what I came up with. This is the order I received today:
Bible Sampler quilt top - all the fabric
Fabric for Bible blocks
Background, cornerstones, sashing and border/binding fabric
Join me next month when I post the first block!

A few weeks ago, I happened upon the invitation issued by Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy to join the Kaleidoscope quilt along that she's hosting. After thinking about it for about thirty seconds, I decided I wanted to play.
At the start of June, she gave us the fabric requirements and today, we are underway with the cutting instructions, yayy!
I was able to print off the template with no problem and in checking through my sewing room I found that I already have the 6.5" ruler and I just cut the 4.5" triangle from some template plastic so I am in business!
48 prints and 48 solids and 48 corner triangles for the baby quilt, you say? I'm on it - see, I haven't changed my mind and I'm still going to use this fabric:
If the baby size impresses me, I may just have to make the big quilt too, but 120 prints and 120 solids is a little more ambitious than I'm up for at the moment. Between cutting triangles and playing catch-up with the FWQAL, I'd say my Thursday is planned! There's still time to join in the fun!
