perhaps since this IS a quilting blog.....

...I really ought to show something quilty. So, I share this quilt from the 100th issue of American Patchwork and Quilting... I've been nudged by a friend that it might be a fun quilt to work on.
I sent my hubby into town bright and early this morning to find my own copy....because somewhere in the back of my mind I thought I might have the perfect background fabric buried deep in my stash...
Not sure that I will follow through with making this quilt, but may toy with a block or two and see where it leads me.
40 hours spent at the ice rink for hockey camp left little time for stitching this week...
Up before the rooster this morning and I made a bit of progress, wish I could share the entire project but that will have to wait...
Meet my new friend....a vintage turtle cloth tape measure..... my latest find on Ebay. My apologies to the bidder that I stole him away from, but I just couldn't let you win him for $14.99. I'm sure that you must feel horrible for bidding the price up so quickly in the last 5 minutes of bidding...apology accepted. I don't doubt that the seller would love to thank you for trying to outbid me. Better luck next time!
