Mostly this weekend I am getting organized for my trip to Michigan to see Bonnie Hunter! Since Bonnie had to cancel her Canadian visit in 2012, I decided that if I was going to be able to see her I had to go to the US, and the Town Hall Quilt Guild in Clarkston has allowed me to join in the fun with them! I am so excited! I will also make a quick visit to see my neices and nephew who live in Michigan.
So this week I have been stash diving and trying to put together somewhat co-ordinated piles of stash that I want to use up. I started out thinking, all old fabrics are going in the "use up" pile, but since then I've put a lot of them back on the shelf because they are too nice to use...like my favorite batiks (even I know that this is CRAZY!!).
Now I'm thinking about using up my old plaids for the Blue Ridge Beauty and for Cathedral Stars I am still working on a plan...I have one more day to decide! Okay Kathryn this is not rocket science...just pick some fabrics already !! Here are the background scraps and the gold pieces for the star points, but I am still working on the other decisions. Oh yah...I should probably also pack some (preferably clean) clothes!
What are you doing this weekend??? If you don't have anything else to do today, how about a virtual fiber field trip?!? Check out the fabulous list that Vicki regularly compiles and visit a wide range of interesting artists & projects - click here...enjoy!
