My Grandma's favorite color is red so I'm going to do a red/pink diamond pattern since Pam's QAL taught me how to make those fantastic HST's. Well, I couldn't find any precuts in the colors that I wanted so I just bought yardage. I started cutting away and after thinking I had enough I devoted myself to my sewing machine. Well, as it turns out, I only accounted for half. I have no idea how I counted so wrong since I even drew it out and counted them up on my handy-dandy graph paper. I'm pretty sure I'll have to grab some more fabric so I may have to swing through a quilt store in AA to pick some up. I really, really want to get this done so I can give it to her. I'm going to quilt it myself to save a bundle of time.
I also stopped at a quilt store in Haslett on my way home from the hospital. It was a little store, but I managed to grab some fabrics while I was there.
I really like the blue one and the baby print was only $3/yd! I bought the rest of the bolt :)
I also bought this:
I got the elephants at Creative Quilt Kits and the rest at Joann. I thought the elephants would go well with the embroidered blocks I found in my Grandma H's belongings. It was only a remnant so I hope that the little amount I have can fit in somewhere. I haven't even began thinking about it!
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend! Here is a (pretty bad) picture of my lovely kitty creeping on me to help envision what my weekend has entailed!
