The new Fat Quarter Shop 2009 Designer Mystery Block of the Month arrived in the mail yesterday! I was heading off to sew with some friends, so I decided to cut it out right away! This months pattern is designed by Brenda Riddle of Little Acorns, and it’s a terrific block. These blocks are always designed well, and there is always plenty of fabric to make the block with left-overs to spare! In fact I had so much fun making one block that I decided to make two! Using my Prairie Paisley leftovers from this Schnibbles quilt, I decided to cut out another block. That way, when next May comes around I’ll have two Designer Mystery quilts, and I will have used my stash for one!
Oh, and I wasn’t a very good blogger at the sewing get-together yesterday…I forgot my camera! But it was wonderful sewing (actually I just spent the time cutting fabric and visiting). And eating….the food was terrific! We had a wonderful chicken salad, delicious meatballs, an awesome salsa called “glop” and a fruit dip that was served with deep fried cinnamon-sugar tortillas…I quite possibly ate more than I worked on my blocks! Hope you have a terrific weekend!
