A Little Inventory

I’m heading out of town in a few days for a fun sewing weekend with friends and I’ve been making a pile of projects to take with me.  I’m hoping to get all of these at least started, and maybe a few of them finished.  Wishful thinking?  Perhaps.  It’s better to take more projects than you’ll need, right?  I wouldn’t want to run out of things to sew!

Scrappy navy prints

First off is this stack of navy prints.  I want to make a whole quilt of the Scrappy Susannah block using just navy prints and maybe a yellow or mint in the center.  So these are the navy prints all cut to size and stacked.  Any input on what color I should use in the block centers?  I'm still trying to decide!

Stack of fabrics

Next up is this fun stack which will be used to test the throw size of one of my upcoming patterns.  I’ve made a table topper size and loved it, but I’m still playing with the size of the sashing and posts. 

Fabulously Fast Quilts - a book by Amy Smart

I’ve had this stack of Art Gallery prints for about a year now and I’m suddenly itching to put them to good use.  I’m considering using them in a quilt from Amy Smart’s book, Fabulously Fast Quilts

Story Book Classics fabric and Cross Stitch quilt pattern

And this is the one I’m most excited about!  My friend Amber recently released this Cross Stitch pattern and I’ll be making it with these Story Book Classics prints.  You can find a PDF version of the Cross Stitch pattern here, and a paper version here.

Anyone want to place bets on how many of these I can get done in 3.5 days?


  1. Hey! I'm heading to quilt retreat too!(McCall, Idaho) Between you and Amber (I clicked on the link) I have many ideas of what to take to do. NOW it's just getting it all ready!
