Fabric Choices

The weekend plan includes making some blocks using these fabrics. There’s an idea for a small quilt that’s begging to be made so last night I pulled some batik and hand-dyed fabrics that will be in the 12 blocks I plan on making. I’m planning to stitch them on the machine and am hoping that I can get all 12 done quickly and then put the little top together. There are a lot of tiny HSTs (half-inch ones, actually) in each block. I may decide to use a black fabric instead of the white.

My plans for the long weekend are almost all quilt-related. Along with the blocks mentioned above, there’s one quilt I want to get quilted (machine quilting), a top I want to finish and perhaps get basted, a top I want to baste and perhaps start the quilting of and a few design ideas I’m dying to play with.

While putting the fabrics out on the board to photograph, a little helper arrived to investigate.

Baxter seems to prefer to sleep with his front paws up around his ears. Makes us laugh every time.

  1. Just hearing your list of what you hope to get done this weekend is exhausting! Wow!
    Little Baxter is just trying to decide which color of fabric will taste the best. He’s so funny! He’s also trying to cover his ears because the sewing that is going on is so loud he can’t get a good nap! 🙂


  2. Pretty fabrics, I look forward to seeing what you have planned. Pictures of Baxter’s exposed tummy always puts a smile on my face :0)



  3. Baxter seems to enjoy all aspects of quilting from fabric selection to helping sew 🙂 I am sewing bindings this weekend and the cats are having fun “holding” the quilt down.
