After supper I decided I really need to find the fabric that I used for my Baltimore Liberty blocks. I used so much of that fabric that it was driving me crazy!
That green polka dot fabric! I used so much of that in my block that I just couldn't accept the fact that I didn't have it in the house. My mind is going..."Did I let mom use it?.....Did I let someone else have some?....Why wasn't it with the other fabrics that I have with these patterns?.....WHAT WAS I THINKING???.....What the heck did I do with it?!!
Okay, got tired of wondering and decided to go looking for it on line. Of course I "Bing'd" it. I would put "yellow/green polka dot fabric," "moda fabrics," "green dot fabrics," and what ever else I could figure out. I went to Fabric.com, as well as a few other sites. I used to have an envelope of quilt shops that I shopped at when I needed something. Nope, that was on the "old" computer. I usually don't buy fabrics, because I do BELIEVE I have way too much as it is. Specially since I do applique. Plus between mom and I, there is way too much fabric! Okay, I decided to just check out Connecting Threads for the fabric I'm looking for.....WOW! There it was! At least it looks like the fabric. I remembered the design and sure enough the design is the same! Of course, I can't just buy that one piece of fabric! I found more fabric that looked pretty and would work on the baskets......yep, I bought more fabric! What was I thinking?! Heck if I know, I was looking and "liking" what I saw! So, now I have about 5 other fatquarters coming with the 1/2 yard of fabric I was looking for! Didn't learn a thing....did I?!
This is one of the blocks I worked on last night. I realized after I did them, that all the purple pieces were supposed to be one piece and not 5 different pieces. I'm trying to decide if I want to take it out, and chances are I will. The tear drops go over this. I was thinking of putting all the tear drops together as one piece but this flower needs them to be tear drops. Ugh, all that work I did last night to find out all I had to do was look at the pattern before I started with the flower. Oh, well, we all learn something from time to time.
I forgot to post my photos on my photo page, so updated that today. Not a lot of photos, but will add more as I start going out to take photos.
Tomorrow is bowling on the travel league. I'll be gone most of the morning and back in the afternoon. Not sure if I will be able to get a few stitches in when I get home. We'll be heading out again for our night bowling. We went and got my bowling ball today. Forgot I was bowling twice tomorrow. Remember on Friday and that didn't do me any good.
As I sit here, thinking of what I just spent money on, I'm hoping they will work in my baskets and Liberty quilt. I need to go downstairs and get a white fabric for the center of my flower. I want to mark a few more blocks and get the baskets basted so I can get started on more flowers. My mind is off and racing....all about quilts.....which leaves me Happy Quilting!
