I may end up selling some sets in my Etsy shop.... I have really nice vintage sheets. I mean r.e.a.l.l.y. nice sheets. Bright, fun, etc... I think I may make my Maybellene pattern in some of these this month. Each block requires 1/2 of a layer cake square and 1 charm square. We'll see....
...because I got side-tracked on another English Paper Piecing project. Notice the capital letters--it's because EPP is that cool. Yep, really old, old school is cool--don't doubt it's addicting properties. ;-)
So on that note, I recently placed an order with PaperPieces.com for some jewel shapes and some enlongated hexagons (with the acrylic templates to match). I know that I could cut these out myself, but life if too short for me to do extra cutting. Who needs the stress?? My son just got his driver's permit and he is going to get my Jeep so letting him drive me around like Miss Daisy is enough anxiety for me each day!!
I'm going to do a jewel star sort of hexagon quilt from the new fabric line Summerfest by April Rosenthal. Let me show you the fabrics...they are lovely!!
I'm sure you could tell that the soft rainbow-y goodness was a quick draw for me. I bought the charm packs online a few months ago from someone who picked them up at Sample Spree at market (and wanted to part with them?? Foolish...). Then I ordered the jelly roll from my favorite online shop, Green Fairy Quilts (free shipping and low prices). Now I really need the FQ stack...maybe for Mother's Day??? Here is what I've started so far...
Anyhow, that is what's up around here. One month until school is over!! 21 school days, to be exact. The teachers are way more excited to be out than the students ever will be. I've been trapped in high school for over 30 years now!! Let me out!! Also, I think I only have about 402 days left until retirement (one more school year). Awesome!
