Catching Up!

It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks and although I have not been doing much sewing I have shopped a bit and planned a bit. I did manage to get this mini Dresden Plate finished! It is so sweet and I really need to find a spot to hang it. The finished dimensions are 19" x 23".
I also had a quick trip to Billings, MT and was thrilled to go to Fiberworks !It was a beautiful quilt shop and I was sorry to say I was shopping with a list. Before going I figured out what I needed for a couple of UFO's and I mostly stuck to my plan.
First I was looking for fabric for my upcoming needle turn applique quilt. I am loving these colors!
Then a needed a white batik to make a star quilt that I have a Bali Pop set aside for.
Next on my list was fabric for borders, etc for these star blocks. They were made a couple of years ago with a Honey Bun (Aster Manor) but I didn't have matching fabric. I was so lucky to find some!
And finally, because I could not resist (they had an amazing sample)! I can't wait to dive into this pattern, but first I have a few projects to finish I guess!
I could have spent so much more time (and money) at that store!
Now I better get washing all my fabric so I can start using it!
Happy Stitching!
