Remember the new Bunny Hill pattern I was drooling over a couple weeks ago? Pumpkinville? Let me refresh your memory:
I didn't sign up for a block of the month program because I want to make mine with darker fabrics--fall and winter quilts just feel "right" to me in darker shades. The problem was, though, that my stash was a bit lacking when it comes to oranges and rusts.
Last weekend, I needed to run a couple errands to Trader Joe's and the quilt shop that's in the same shopping center (they had taken down their Schnibbles display, so I needed to pick up some quilts I'd loaned them). I had one of those "customer appreciation" reward cards burning a hole in my wallet for a few months, so I thought I'd use it for some orange fat quarters. Nice, eh?
Not bad for a start, but it gets better! Last week, I got an email from Renee Nanneman/Need'l Love about some new fat quarter bundles for fall. Was she reading my mind or something? It almost seems that way! So I quickly placed my order and look what was waiting for me when I arrived home from work tonight:
Now I can hardly wait to put the rest of the fabrics together and get started!
I hate to change the fall atmosphere on you, but I've got to tell you I finished this month's Merry, Merry Snowmen block--yes, "got to" tell you!
Why "got to"? I was getting a little worried about having too many block of the month projects going on, but I'm pretty pleased with myself right now because I think this is the earliest I've finished a Merry, Merry Snowmen block since we started. I've also finished this month's Autumn House and Country Cottages and I'm working on Harrington and Hannah now.
I guess I just want to be sure that if I start another project, I'll have time to fit it in and not become overwhelmed. But I wonder if I have time to fit three or four more projects in? Because that's how many I want to start in the next couple months. Yikes! At least Autumn House and Merry, Merry will be finishing in a few months. "Sew" many exciting projects, and "sew" little time!
