Coming along

A while back I went to a Stack and Slash class and used a Dream On layer cake.  I was not thrilled with the results so I put the blocks away for a while.  Then when I was talking about making my SIL (who is very ill with lung cancer) a quick quilt, my sister reminded me about these blocks, so out they came, and, voila! 
I started quilting it Sunday and hope to have it complete by next Sunday.

This cabinet used to house cassette tapes.  I had the bright idea of cleaning it out and using it for my fat quarters.  So now it sits in my sewing room full of FQs!

Here's some close ups of my pretties:

Time to get ready for work.  Was going to complain there for a second, but then I thought, wait!  Be happy you have a job, and I AM, very thankful I have a job, AND a wonderful family, AND a warm, dry home, etc., etc.!  Have a thankful day, my wonderful friends!

  4. What a sweet housing idea! I think I have one of those, somewhere...I like anything done in those dream on prints, gee, I have some of those, too, lol

  5. Great idea for FQ organization and display, easy to see what you have and they will stay dust free!! The quilt for Jacklyn is beautiful!! I pray that she will have many days in which to use it....

  6. A very cute way to store your fabric.
