My Fall 2010 market sewing is officially finished--for the second time! Well, let me explain. Monday morning I shipped off my final market project (or so I thought); later that afternoon I received an e-mail...could I make one more quilt and have it back by Friday?! The quilt was one I'd made earlier this fall in another colorway; however, it involved applique', and I just wasn't sure I could do it! My husband took over most of the household stuff (cooking, car pools) so I could sew, sew, sew! And yesterday I was able to overnight the finished quilt less than 48 hours after it arrived. So that was pretty much my week along with my son's Junior Varsity football game and working in the snack bar tonight for the Varsity game!
Today I was lucky enough to find binding fabric for my American Jane Snippets quilt--(one of these days I will learn to buy binding when I start a project--seems as if I'm endlessly trying to find bindings for older projects)! I found the perfect binding in another American Jane line, Happy Camper--I'll be binding this soon, for sure!
And, my search for all 45 Flea Market Fancy prints is nearly over--I have 44 of them. The grey print on top was the final piece I collected. I'm so thankful to everyone who swapped or sent me swatches (and sometimes bigger pieces) of these fabrics.
I'm still missing one print (the other green bubble dot print), but I've pretty much decided to start my project without it...maybe I can leave a space for it in case I'm ever able to find it.
Oh...and you're probably wondering about the winner for my box of scraps giveaway--I used the random number generator which chose #266--Jessica! Congratulations Jessica...I'll send you an email to get your address so I can get those scraps in the mail!
