A New Squishy!

A squishy arrived in my mailbox today!!! And it came all the way from Nottingham, UK!!! My friend Quilter1962.. well that is her chat name from the Quilting Board gave me these gorgeous Fat Quarters today!

We were involved in a Valentine's FQ exchange on the board. I just love the fabrics she sent me, and can't wait to create something with them! I am thinking I might use the 2 FQs with the different squares in them and use them as the centers for small courthouse step blocks. Perhaps I'll make it into a little wallhanging.

I listening to the local weather forecast earlier today and we might be in for a wee bit of snow storm this weekend. We could get up to 30cm of snow by the time it's all said and done. I think it's the perfect kind of weather to be sewing in! Tonight I picked up the thread I want to use to start free motion quilting Celtic Knots for the Double Irish Chain. I have about 15 minutes left of basting the quilt and then that baby is going on the machine! I can't WAIT to start the free motion work again!

Tomorrow I start up my classes again for the winter session. I have a 9 week Double Irish Chain class. It is a small class of only three women, but it will be a good one. As I did before, I will post photos as the girls progress through their quilt making. Tomorrow we will just be getting the fabrics ready and cut. Next week they will start the actual sewing.

Well I'm off to bed. It's almost 11:30 and I'm ready to get some sleep. It was another very busy work week and I'm looking forward to a couple of nice relaxing, and of course quilty, days!

Quiltingly Yours
