I hope everyone's finding time to quilt today to celebrate our special day. SewCalGal is having a celebration with a linky party over at her blog, there's a lot going on over there.
I have my own personal challenge going on right now, use up or get rid of some fabric, I have a lot. You know the fabric that's just too pretty to resist, then it sits there mocking you? This is my latest, use it or lose it.
These beautiful butterflies have taunted me long enough, I fussy cut them, which wastes so much fabric but really who cares, more scraps for the scrap bin, they'll look good in a string quilt.
I finished the borders this morning and it's laid out for sandwiching. The open yellow spaces are going to be free styled butterflies and bonus! the backing is another butterfly fabric that has sat and gathered dust.
Here's hoping you're finding time to celebrate, poor Maya is just partied out, look at those dark circles.
"No mom, please not one more stitch" LOL
I'll leave you with a conversation at our house last night:
Me: Tomorrows International Quilting Day
Him: So it's a holiday for your kind....you're species?
Him: Should I buy a present?
Me: Fat Quarters are customary, big piles of them.
So to all of my kind and my species, Party On! and Happy Holiday!
