a little piece of advice from me...

I pieced this little coffee themed quilt (I used a moda charm pack, "bistro")  for a special (secret) reason. I got the pattern off moda bake shop that you can find right here.

while I originally thought that I would like this pattern, it turns out I was wrong. also, if you decide to make this, make sure that after you print out the PDF, you go through the tutorial on the blog, and fix all the mistakes. the directions on the moda bake shop blog are correct, but the PDF has not been fixed yet. (i'm glad that I checked back before I started making this quilt!!)

I love this coffee line, bistro, and have hoarded collected several charm packs of it, just waiting to find that perfect pattern. if I were to make another quilt, I would use the line dance pattern, which you can find over here.

I made the line dance quilt this summer for our scraps to wraps quilting group at church. I used a charm pack of oink-a-doodle-moo, but do you think I can find a picture of  it? (no!)

anyway- have fun piecing!

some of my favorite things!

what could possibly be better: quilting, a mystery, and using fabrics from my stash? Bonnie Hunter is starting a new mystery quilt Celtic Solstice . I've never done one of her mystery quilts before, but if you do a quick google search of images, you can see some of the spectacular quilts that others have made. (like here and here )
I'll be making the 75" X 75" quilt (111" square is just a tad bit too big, don'tchathink?). I'm excited about this for a couple reasons. now that the gardens are mostly done, I've had a bit more time for quilting- which I really enjoy. also, I'll be using fabrics from my stash, and ALSO Bonnie's quilts have TONS of TINY pieces, and since that is something that I would normally steer away from, I 'm looking forward to doing something different than what I would normally choose.
the mystery doesn't start until Friday, November 29, so you still have time to pull your fabrics and get ready. who wants to join me?
