Pink Strings Top
I corresponded with the Secret Santa Christmas Swap Elf, Donna, today about my likes and dislikes for the benefit of the person who has my name. Mentioned that I don't really like pinks unless they are paired with browns or are double pinks. So it's rather ironic that I sewed today in my bright pink t-shirt making pink Heartstrings blocks. Hmmmm. Originally, I had planned on using a cute pink print with tennis shoes for the border, but it just didn't look the way I had imagined it. Luckily, I found this print in my stash and it seemed just right. I may applique a few random hearts here and there. After quilting, this quilt will go to the local Habitat for Humanity's auction next spring.
Checking my email, I found that Alice from Quilted Giraffe announced that I had guessed the closet to how many buttons were in her tin and I won the pail of batik fat quarters!!! What a lucky gal I am today! I love getting fun mail so I'll be on the look out for this one.
Tomorrow I'm heading to the Kalamazoo Log Cabin Quilter's Show held in Portage, MI. I hope to keep my fabric buying under control despite the thirty three vendors. Oh, my!
