Play day

I took today off to get rid of some of my stash.  I have finished all of my little baskets and didn't want to integrate the leftovers back into my stash, so I cut them up for other projects.  I am going to be taking a class taught by Bonnie Hunter in Jackson on March 5.  She is teaching the Pineapple Blossom.  I had lots of browns used in the basket quilt so thought I would do a scrappy brown pineapple blossom.  I now am ready for the class.  I probably don't have enough cut out but certainly have enough cut out that can be finished in the class.
Then I cut the remainder into two categories:  one in 2" strips to be used in a scrappy french braid quilt and the other to be used as half-square triangles in one of Edyta Sitar's patterns -- don't know which yet because I like all of her patterns and books. 

I don't use Edyta's triangle papers since I have Brenda Henning's Triangulations 2.0 and print my own.  I love that program!!! 

And I have two rows of my Crazy Bet quilt sewn together!!!!  Yeh!!! 

Yes, yes, yes!!  This has been a FUN day!!

  1. You'll have fun in Bonnie's class. I took a class with her in Nashville a couple of years ago (Sister's Choice, plus lecture/trunk show).
