Distractions

Lately I find myself distracted from other ongoing projects, and the culprit is inspiration from other blogs! On Stitch Mischief I found this scrappy variation of Camille Roskelley's Norway pattern and immediately downloaded the pattern to try my own scrappy block. I love everything about Jade's design and will probably shamelessly copy it, but I also want to make the pattern version of it.


Another distraction is buying forbidden fabrics! I did very well the first part of this year with my moratorium on purchasing fabrics, but I have slipped back into fabric addiction. I justified my purchases though. I needed this Hello Bear fat eighth collection to make a quilt for this little guy - my great-great nephew (yes, great-great!).


Love the quirky characters of Hello Bear - it will be perfect for a two-year old boy. I found it at one of my favorite Etsy shops.


I will need more Moda Marbles to make a quilt for my granddaughter, patterned after the pillow I made for her birthday. I had to search a bit to find the quantity I wanted and found it at this online shop.


This fabric, Wishes by Sweetwater, was on sale, and I need more low volume prints, so into the cart it went!


And this print I simply fell in love with - Flight Patterns by Tamara Kate.


I did catch up yesterday on my Farm Girl Vintage blocks, and today I hope to finish up the Little Joys quilt. I hope all of you are having a happy, undistracted week!

Quilting is more fun than Housework

  1. Wow, 'Flight Patterns' is gorgeous. I haven't seen that one. I might need a piece of that. Wouldn't it be a great backing, all on its own? So pretty!

  2. Hello Linda! I can completely understand all your distractions! Love the Norway pattern and the scrappy look... it will be a beautiful quilt. Your fabrics purchases are also beautiful and your great great nephew is as cute as a button! :) x

  3. So much for your 'not buying material' statement - you have certainly put that to rest! Beautiful fabric for your GGN - isnt he just so cute. Now that you have all that extra fabric youre going to be soooo busy. Love your new block pattern too

  4. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap! But now I am wanting to play with that scrappy block myself. Cannot. Start. Something. New!

  5. It's always fun to see someone else has purchased some fabric that is in my stash as well. I never knew its name (Wishes by Sweetwater) but I had a fat quarter of it and used it as a low volume background in a scrappy patchwork quilt I made last spring. So pretty! As are your other fabric purchases, too!
