I want to make a quilt for the Poet and his fiance for Christmas and I was looking for something modern. I found this at 2nd Avenue Studio and it's exactly what I was looking for. Even the colors are perfect. So I ordered a Bali Pop in the very same colors from Batiks Plus. It arrived while I was out of town. It came with a nice note from Cookie, who explained that her grandson plays hockey for the Saginaw Spirits, our local hockey team. She sent me these gorgeous batiks as a bonus!! Aren't quilters just the nicest people in the world!! I have a couple things I need to finish up before I start this, so I have to be patient ... but I can hardly wait!!
I did a little sewing today. I made some Christmas coasters and a tiny basket. The basket actually started out as a mistake. I cut a piece of fabric too small, so I decided to see what I could do with it. It turned out pretty cute!! I like to let projects just evolve once in a while and this was one of those. I think I'm going to hang it on my Christmas tree as an ornament!!
