A month or so ago, I went to Mama's Log House Quilt Shop in Huntington, Ar. I blogged about it here. I purchased the "Be Attitudes" Quilt Pattern book by Nancy Halvorsen. I also purchased 3 bundles of fat quarters that looked like would be a good fit for this quilt.
With the beautiful sunshine we have been having (until today--it's very cool and rainy now), I am itching to get away for a few days at the local lake. So I decided that I would get a project ready to take with me.
I have read on several blogs about how they packaged up projects to take on trips or quilting retreats. I decided to bag up a couple of blocks for the "Be Attitudes" Quilt.
I spread out the new fat quarters I purchased last month and a whole lot more and set to work choosing fabrics.
After I chose the fabrics for the first block, I decided to go ahead and cut the fabric into the sizes I needed for the block. As I was cutting the fabric, I looked down at the selvage edge and guess who the designer was for one of the bundles.
Yep, Nancy Halvorsen. No wonder I thought they would be great for this quilt. Coincidence? Fate? Luck? Nope, just beautiful fabric calling my name.
Well, I have one block in a kit, now I'm going to sit down and do a couple more while I watch "Army Wives". If I wouldn't play around with the fabric so much, I would get a lot more accomplished.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
