more QAYG blocks & notebook paper fabric


August 2010 I started making these (not surprisingly) FUN blocks, along with Penny of Sew Take a Hike.  You quilt them as you go thus I call them my Quilt As You Go blocks.  Clever, eh?
I finally decided to make some more just to keep my sewing machine going as I'm in between big projects at the moment.  And yes, I'm still loving them!   Still no where close to having enough for a lap quilt, but I'll get there!  Want more info on the process?  Check it out here!
{Just watch out - its addicting!)


And a little fabric love!
I've seen notebook fabric here and there for not an affordable price but THEN I saw Timeless Treasures had a print in The Pixie Pops collection, and I had to grab some!
Isn't it fun?
When making quilt labels I think this will be adroable!  Not to mention keeping my words straight as I use alphabet stamps... one... letter... at... a... time.


Said Notebook Paper fabric is from Fresh Modern Fabric on Etsy... and she even included four squares of fabric I had never seen before, from the Hello Pilgrim collection by Lizzy House.  YUMMY!  I may be placing another order with them soon!
I'm such a sucker for greens and blues!

What are you working on this week?  
I just finished a quilted throw pillow for our bed!  
I'll be sharing it with ya'll soon!

I've ordered fabric from Fresh Modern Fabric recently as well, and I got the orange colorway of Hello Pilgrim. So cute, and such a fun surprise :)
This week I'm starting work on a commissioned quilt for a niece. It will be awesome, but it will take months. Meh... Can't wait to see the pillow!
