New FO for March

2014 NewFO Challenge

The end of another month and it's time for the linky party at Cat Patches, the infamous "just start something, you don't have to finish it" party, I always say that with a Bruce Willis voice "come out to the coast, we'll have a few laughs..."

First up is my "Book It Challenge" quilt
This is such a great challenge, if you haven't joined in yet, think about it, pick a book, magazine or pattern that you already own and make a quilt. Sharon's a genius

Even though I'm sticking to a strict fabric diet, when I saw this chevron fabric I saw the quilt I'd make, when vision's appear you have to buy it or you'll be haunted and end up going back and buying it anyway, and what if it's sold out when you go back?
Just a peak at my thought process, LOL.

   I only bought a yard and used stash for the rest so it's like eating chocolate covered strawberries, they cancel each other out, right?

Right after that one, David said the terrible words "I think it's time to replace your car", What!!?? I love my car, sure it's old and getting rusted and those little annoying red lights keep coming on and costing a fortune to turn off, but, I love my car. So car shopping and mourning Eddie (my car) pretty much ate my brain. Shopping for cars was all about how much they could hold, David would mention the terrible twins and every salesman would fold down seats to show the cargo area and I would be horrified, the twins ride seat belted in the back seat, the cargo area is for the two bird cages when we need to evacuate. Yep, I'm pretty sure there are pictures of me on a black list with the words "crazy animal woman" in car dealerships all over Miami.  
David said it was the best time he's ever had shopping for cars.

So without a brain I needed to sew without thinking, I made this

and then this

Both from precuts, no thinking really required.

So that's it for March, I hope you'll join us for the no pressure link up "just start something... we'll have a few laughs". 

Later gators,


  1. I hate car shopping too - but I have a thing for Jeeps so that's all I look at. All of your quilts are just so fun and interesting. Pre-cuts are always a good 'fixer'.

  2. Hi Dana. I like the way you think !!! And love the Chevron kwilt and the colors are yummy!

  3. Pretty projects. You have been productive. And, the Chevron fabric was an absolute must!

  4. What a productive month you've had!!! Your quilts are always so bright and cheerful, like a big dose of Key Largo sunshine:-)

  5. So cute! Bummer about the car.

  6. Lots started and finished this past month. All look cute.

  7. Hi!!!! Love all of your starts!!!! I think we should all get t shirts that say...Just Start Something!!!! Ha!!! Love it!!! Thank You

  8. Hi!!!! Love all of your starts!!!! I think we should all get t shirts that say...Just Start Something!!!! Ha!!! Love it!!! Thank You

  9. Hi Dana, Didn't quite know how else to let you know, but it appears your AOL email account may have been hijacked by someone from Russia. I received a suspicious looking message this morning (didn't open). Hope it turns out to be nothing, but thought it best to let you know.

  10. I'm just getting caught up on my blog reading (I'm sitting at the county office, waiting on a permit). I got a couple of looks for laughing at this post. Car shopping is always quite an experience. And saying goodbye is always hard! I keep saying that I'm going to drive my little Ranger until the wheels fall off. 17 years and "Shadow" is still going strong!
