about the shopping trip

I've been looking for fabric to use on the back of the baby quilt 

now that the center moose block is almost finished, I'll probably be stitching this top together by the end of the week 

on most of these baby quilts I've been able to find a print that coordinates with the theme in a juvenile print  

I made the excursion to the other fabric store yesterday 

the only forest animal fabric was much too "adult" 

 I was able to get this soft tan fabric that has little vines and leaves on it 

this should be a good color coordinate for the strong browns, rusts and greens on the front of the quilt 

just need to run it through the washer so it will be ready when I finish the top  

time at the sewing machine again yesterday 

I've been working on putting together the pieced strips of this charity quilt top for a couple of days -- there are enough of them for two quilts 

I wanted to get a soft green to put with those at the fabric store, but I couldn't find the right color, so I just put together the pink one yesterday 

one more afghan square finished 

 this is the end of that red toned variegated yarn -- too bad, it was fun to work with 

time to get movin'

Such a happy quilt. Someone will be very lucky.
