Happy Independence Day!

The 4th of July has always been my favorite holiday.  After all, summer is my favorite season, and baseball is my favorite sport.  And who doesn't love a good fireworks display??  This 4th was different, though.  My brother-in-law and his soon-to-be bride are getting married in Maine tomorrow afternoon, and I didn't get to go.  :(  As a consolation prize, I treated myself to a shopping spree at Jo-Ann, and here's part of my haul:

Hmm, an awful lot of those fabrics coordinate, don't they?  Yes, I'm starting another project, and I'm stepping up the size quite a bit. The wall hanging I recently completed finished at around 12" x 26".  This project should end up being around 40" by 55".  I won't disclose what it is I'm making just yet (the recipient of this gift may very well be reading this!), but it looks awful girly, no?  Don't worry--not ALL of these fabrics are going into the same project.  I just can't help myself when I see the remnant bin at the cutting counter.  I mean, I scored 1/2 a yard of that chartreuse Kona cotton solid for $1.80!  My stash is quickly growing--now I understand why these quilters let it get out of control, because I'm loving it.

I expect this project to take me a week or so (not a lot of piecing, and some straightforward quilting), but I'm also making a smaller project at the same time, so as long as I can remember how to attach a zipper foot to my machine, I'll have something brand new to share in a few days.

Stay safe and stay free!
