And last but not least (well, actually it is least because I hate it.) Here's the Snippets Pinwheel Quilt.I don't like how it went together at all. I'm not a perfectionist but I like for my quilts to be well made. I tried on this one. Really, I did. But me and pinwheels just don't get along. I just don't feel as though it is of the level it should be. As soon as it's quilted it will be in my shop for a "seconds quilt" price.

Scrumptious reproduction fabrics. Patterns! The patterns actually came yesterday. I got them on sale from Fat Quarter Quilters- thanks Laurie! Now, that's a good thing and a really bad thing. See, the bad thing is that I've been eyeing that Rings of Diamonds pattern that Emily created for months now. Since I found it on sale, I gave into buying it. But that then lead to buying fabric for it. Here's the thing; I usually like to take patterns and then use my own choice of fabrics on them. But, Emily's choice of Moda's Cotton Blossoms is just too perfect. So I broke down and bought the fabric. Um, for 2 quilts. And for the brown and aqua quilt, I bought enough to turn it into a king size quilt instead of the 60"x60" quilt that the pattern allows. I did only buy the red and cream though for a lap size. I hope I like creating the quilt because I have now committed myself to making them. My humble quilting bank account won't let me forget it either!
