a finish and some new fabric

I finished a quilt yesterday!  I can't show it for a bit yet, but it will be soon!  Actually, I just finished another one on Friday.......*that* one I can show you (and will in a post tomorrow!).  I wanted to show how CLOSE I came to running out of thread for quilting the one I can't show yet though.  I was *sweating* when I had to wind a half a bobbin to finish it!
I was especially sweating because it was thread I got from Connecting Threads and would have to wait at least a week to order any, then another week to receive it if I ran out.  WHEW, relief when I finished and didn't completely run out!

I participated in a polka dot charm swap - and got these lovelies in the mail last week!

I have 4 charms of each polka dot plus 4 charms of coordinating Kona for each polka dot.  Now........  what to make with them????

I also picked up a couple packs of the new DS print fat quarters from JoAnn's (on sale plus a 10% off total purchase coupon).  I am in LOVE with the aqua floral!!!!!!  I wish it was in yardage because I think I'd get about 10 yards.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I want a quilt backing and pillowcases from this print.  Alas, it will not happen since it's just in the FQ's :(

  1. I recently sweated it out while quilting a quilt. Had JUST enough to finish - whew! Wow, what a great stack of polka dot charms! I need to get some of those new DS FQs - she had them for sale at our lecture last month and can you believe I didn't buy any?? I also didn't buy the stack of the not-yet-available Chicopee she had. I must have not been feeling well that night - LOL!
