Post Paducah High

Still feeling the glow created by all the beautiful quilts seen in Paducah.  Here is See Rock City by Julie who I was excited to meet up with at the show.

See Rock CityJulie’s quilt is wonderful….better in person…..as you can tell it’s BIG!!!

And it’s DWM so here’s what’s up on mine, March and April’s First Saturday blocks.  We have two more months and then we’ll get suggested settings.  One we got a glimpse of Saturday had the bright blue & white HST’s continued into sashing and I think it will look quite nice.  Be sure to hop over to Judy’s DWM post to check out other projects in the works.

DWM 5-5-14 I finished sewing up these two tiny 4 1/2″ pp pineapple blocks….they may be the only ones I make, ever!

PPP BlocksI’ve been thrifting a bit & found some good light shirts.  I especially like the two pink ones on the left and the gold print in the middle.  The three shirts on the right have a beautiful hand to them. That’s what convinced me to get them, well that, and the $0.79/lb price 😉

Thrifted ShirtsA while back Bonnie Hunter mentioned that chocolate brown thrifted shirts are hard to find.  She’s absolutely right!  So I snagged this one immediately (if it doesn’t look chocolate brown, trust me it is ;-P).  Then I saw this blue/turquoise flower print…yum.

Thrifted Shirt and DressAnd check out these J Crew boxers!  They are the perfect weight, not thin, and have the softest feel.

Thrifted Map PieceSince I’ve not salvaged the fabric from my treasures, there is no change in my stash report 🙂  That’s my rule, not stash in until it’s stashed 😉
