not quite down the second, but already planning No. 3 & 4

Fabrics for next quilt
Originally uploaded by kprange1
I am very excited about this quilt. I am going to attempt the disappearing 9 patch quilt that has swept the internet and intrigued me. I was determined to use fabrics from my stash and did just that. I even have it all ironed and cut so far. I want to do a little bit of patch work on the back of the quilt too but I haven't sat down to draw that out yet. I just purchased some of Anna Maria Horner's fabric, received Drawing room and I love it and Garden Party should be on its way. I already have plans for the Drawing Room quilt but have no idea what I will do with Garden Party. Other projects on the list are more cube bags, zipper pouch for circular needles, purse and knitting bag. I am going to attempt my first Amy Butler pattern, wish me luck!

in the mood to send a postcard...want to join me? {edited}

I have been in the mood to send off some postcards. Any one want to join me? Just random. I have seen some really inspiring ones on etsy like this set (maybe because of the typewriter) and this one. Beautiful. Also I am loving this idea to make a little postcard keeper. I want to go home and pick fabrics right now! I even think I am going to try to make my own seam binding finally for this project, another task I have been wanting to accomplish. Leave a comment if you want to do a postcard swap with me!
