What's in the bag and ...

it's been raining a lot. There are some huge mushrooms growing in our yard, I hope mushrooms represent good luck. They are so pretty.

Lots of rain, hot and humid means I get to sew more, Yay! I've had this Urban Chicks fabric for a while and decided to stitch a scrappy quilt out of it. I feel like it's a great way to showcase fabric and it doesn't take forever.

The first row has this block in it and I couldn't make myself cover up the little bird's face with a block, so she will stay peeking out of her little paisley house!

I'm machine quilting this in a fun "Swirly Q" design, making it up as I go along.

So that is what is on the line on this cloudy, almost last day of August. There is a little whirlygiggle (Woodland Bloom) block in there, I can't wait to get started on that quilt, another good way to showcase some of the beautiful, irresistible fabrics out there. Also some stacked coins out of the Woodland Bloom.
(Yes, I am obsessed by fabric.)
; )

Riley loves to dig a hole and lay in it to keep cool, guess he will be sleeping in the garage tonight!
