Sometimes I just can't help myself when I see a new fabric line that jumps out at me and says buy me. Buy me now!
This fabric line, called Rachel Remembered by Betsy Chutchian for Moda, is fabric that needed to come and live at my house.
So here's the story behind the block. After I got tired of putting everything away from the quilt show, I sat down with my sketch pad. The sketch pad was only a ploy so Mr. Joe would think I was working instead of snoozing. (I had every intention of taking a snooze!)
Who could sleep while looking and fondling this fabric? I started to draw different quilting components and this 10" block was born. I can just picture the machine quilting around the center star. I ran upstairs to my sewing room and starting cutting into the fabric just like Edward Scissorhands. If you've seen the movie you can just picture little pieces of fabric flying around the room. Now I have to clean that room again!

Throughout my day, I may just happen to drift upstairs to my quilting room and become Edwina Scissorhands.
8th grade graduation party tomorrow here at the house. I'd better get my act together today to be better prepared for tomorrow. It seems like the girls just started Kindergarten, and now they will be going to High School.....before you know it, they will be going off to college. YIKES!
