Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!

No I didn't win a chicken dinner, but I did win a gift card from Red Pepper Quilts and Southern Fabric! It was hard to decide what to buy because Southern Fabrics have so may beautiful fabrics! They shipped the fabric quick too! I bought the sock monkey fabric for baby quilts. The whale piece will be dyed to make the background teal so that it and the teal piece will fit into a project I have in the works. Thank you Red Pepper Quilts and Southern Fabric!

I also got a packaged from Fabric.com. Yes, I am bad, but they were all on sale. The Moda Boo Crew fabric is earmarked for a quilt for a birthday present. I paid $4.60 a yard! You can't beat that! Remember the white spider web fabric I bought not too long ago? That will be for the sister of the girl getting the Boo Crew quilt. The Boo Crew fabric is so cute! I wasn't sure about it at first, but it turned out that it will be perfect! There are hints of orange and green in the characters and for the girl this quilt is for, orange and green are her favorite colors!

The other fabric I bought to go with pieces I already had in my stash. See? Don't they go together great?

I did get started on making binding last night. The strips are sewn together, but I didn't have time to press it.

Why didn't I have time? Because I made cookies for the guys for Easter.

I have lots of plans for the weekend, projects I want to work on, maybe some yard work.

Have a happy Easter.

Can we see the entries that you previously couldn't talk about?
And candy corn paired with boo crew would be a great fit.
Gotta love a gal that's working on Halloween all year 'round.
