You have been absolutely wonderful sending me fish scraps! They are arriving in the mail now and it looks like I will have a good variety for my fish bowls. I've got lots of bowls to make and have been asking for 8 1/2" squares of scrap. If you can spare a square of fish scrap or even something aquarium related (coral, seahorses, shells) let me know.
Indian Paintbrush is sitting and waiting for backing. *SIGH* In my stash is the perfect backing, all four yards and I need five! Darn it!! Today has been spent making several more stars similiar to the ones in the quilt and using the leftover scraps for a pieced back. I'm nearly down to slivers of scrap from the leftover fabrics. I'm on a mission and will get this quilted!
Are you aware of these Shout Color Catcher sheets? Use them! Do you see the dingy gray in comparison to the crisp white sheets? I tossed three sheets in with this quilt for good measure.
I do not prewash my fabrics unless I have something questionable that I feel will bleed and I certainly wouldn't prewash honey buns, jelly rolls, charm packs, turnovers, etc and so forth. Who does? I think that would be a big mess.Dawn is giving away a copy of her NEW book!!! I don't really want to tell you because it makes the odds of my winning whittle away. But I do get a couple of points for sharing the news and because Dawn is a sweetie I'll share the news. Oh....if you go over tell her Quilt Hollow says hi (maybe she'll give me extra points!)
Please check my side bar for two more giveaways added today!! I'm ever so grateful if you tell them I sent you over. In addition, it got me thinking for those who do tell them I sent you on these giveaways ... one of you may just get a little surprise from me to say thank you!!
In addition, my friend at Primitive Elegance (listed on my side bar) posted several of her gorgeous tops. Stop in and say hello...she is a new blogger!
