This and That

I took a little trip to a quilt shop in a near by town with a friend yesterday. This shop is participating in the Row by Row program this summer. I’ve never been interested in collecting the rows and making a quilt like this, until I saw the row designed by this shop.


Yep, had to have this pattern! I won’t buy any others but I couldn’t pass up a Jeep pattern! I also got a few yards of this blue and the FQ of red was a gift from my friend. Thanks, Pam!


I told my friend how I really needed to do some serious work organizing my sewing room. Sometimes just putting that out there can motivate me to start. I came home and started tackling the out of control batting scraps. I had several piles that looked like this:


I pieced pieces into useable sizes, measured, and labeled them like this.


This is so much better!


I got some happy mail this week.


Jeep parts! Woo hoo!

And hubby came home from Sam’s Club last night with these.


He paid $4.16 for one, and 4.86 for the other. That’s a decent discount! 

Have a great weekend!

  1. Haha — you definitely needed that Jeep Row by Row! Have you picked up the J is for Jeep fabric from Moda yet? It’s too cute! Nuts — I was just at Sam’s yesterday and didn’t even think to look at the magazines. I was on a mission to get in and get out and get home to quilt! Your hubby is definitely a keeper!

    Just the week you needed. Fabric, Jeep parts and new quilt mags. And I see that Mr. Wonderful is earning his title.

    Can you tell me where you live? If you are any where need me I want to stop in that shop for the pattern also. My son LOVES his Jeep.

    That Jeep surely is a fun pattern…especially for someone who loves their Jeep. You do have a keeper of a husband for bringing those magazines home for you. Enjoy your weekend! –Andrea

    Hi Katy,
    Darn it – I never saw magazines in Sam’s. Huh, who knew?!! I love that row – I like campers. Patti A – it says Michigan in the picture. I’m just across the lake in Wisconsin but do not know where that city is. Probably too far away. 😦 Anyway, what I really want to say is that your straightening is impressive!!! Would you come straighten my batting scraps too?! Please?! We are near Kenosha, WI where Jeeps were made once . . . maybe – I think I’m stretching here. HAHA ~smile~ Roseanne
