This and that


I was wondering if I should set up goal for May. I'm going to copy cat others and pick a goal from my FAL list. What a great idea! I'm going with Echino bag. Stage one - prewash the fabric - DONE! :-)

Have you heard about Jaybird quilts SAL? I'm trying out the mini Hex N More ruler so we'll see what I ended up with.


Do you have some strips in your stash? You might be interested in participating in Strip-easy quilt challenge. For more info check this post @ Pieced Brain.  I might be playing around with these. Some scraps I got from a friend.


As usual I'm all over the place.

  7. I love the fabrics for your Echino bag. Now I just have to figure out what an Echino bag is. I love hexie quilts so I'll be waiting to see how the ruler works, for you. Finally, you've got to love scraps and those ones are lovely. I wouldn't know how not to be "all over the place". That's the fun part of working with fabric...and yarn...and beads.....see, there I go again.

    I'm visiting from the new blog discussion group. Isn't this fun?!!
