So much eye candy coming in on flickr and blogland from Quilt Market! I have spent some serious time living vicariously through anyone who posted photos from the weekend.
Sample Spree sounds like madness. I love fabric just as much as the next gal, but I don't know that I want to go into the fray for it. But to those who braved it, kudos to you! I guess if you're lucky enough to go to Market, you should experience Sample Spree at least once.
Seeing previews of upcoming collections has me in a bit of a quandary. I've been wanting to buy a few OOP collections I've found on Etsy and a couple of online fabric shops. But the photos from market have me drooling. My quandary is this: do I spend my small fabric allowance on the sexy new stuff, or do I buy the FQ bundles of older collections not widely available anymore?
In sewing news, which I have to keep short because of an adorable 2-year old demanding attention, here are a few bee blocks I've finished:
For the Love Circle of do. Good Stitches, Deb pointed us to this tutorial and asked for Patchwork Wheels in bright prints. I love scrappy blocks, and these were really fun to make.
Robin sent pre-cut squares and asked for Granny Squares for her Aqua and Red Bee blocks. I had a little bit of a discrepancy after squaring up the blocks, which I'm sure is obvious in the picture. I used a scant 1/4", so I'm not sure why they didn't square up correctly. Anyway, I love the fabrics she sent- very pretty!
