Today I didn't get any sewing done, but I did spend considerable time with the stash. In particular, I was considering options for the Plaid Bunny Quilt backing. My first plan was to use Asbury's Geofabulous plaid-like fabric but then wondered if I should make some kind of nine patch arrangement with kissing bunnies and other bunny fabric in the mix.
I also added another page to the blog featuring the fused applique small quilts I made in 2011 as part of Vicki W.'s journal challenge. As should be very clear, I recycle designs a lot.
I also want to show you some recent fabric purchases in case you have a blog and maybe didn't realize how easily you might influence one of your readers. You probably also know that I have a large enough stash and you should think long and hard about being a bad influence.
You know who you are.
In some cases it is the fault of several blog authors and maybe even the fabric designer. The bottom row are fabrics that have been out a while that I wasn't sure how to use. Of course, I now see that these fabrics feature owl eyes for the alternative universe Dear Jane quilt.
And last but not least I would like to mention that the dean of Kitten U has taken up the dark arts. I understand how a kitten might like to burrow into a quilt top while I'm sewing it or ironing it. And I don't know what trouble awaits me trying to layer it. But Molly has taken to stealing sheets of paper and then ripping them up. Oddly, at two different times she grabbed hummingbird designs and shredded them. But her biggest obsession is the magnetic pin cushion which I now carefully hide and she carefully searches for.
