I'm back...still snuffly and the lurking occasional cough...but I'm back.
Just wanted to post a quick things...first I've been cutting more scrap fabric for more 9 patches. I'm obsessed I know it. This set is using up almost (and I mean almost) all my pink fabric left over from various girl quilt projects. The other color you can't see is a bright limey green that's underneath the stack of 9 patches. Once I got them all organized I couldn't bring myself to unshuffle them for a photo. I bought some very light pink Kona for the sashing.
I'm also working on a boy version with frog fabric that I had left over from a quilt I made for a silent auction. I'll use a light green Kona for sashing on that one. It already has a home. Christy actually won the original quilt I made for a silent auction, and with two boys in her house it is a frequent point of discord, so scrappy frogs will go make peace at her house. Picture of fabric to follow.
So to my next very important tip.....if you are quickly becoming a Kona Cotton freak like me, you'll love this shopping tip. FabricShack! They have a WIDE selection of colors, more than JoAnn's for $3.99/yd. And their shipping rates ROCK! Like try $5 for a purchase up to $75! Awesome! I just got my order today and everything was super duper. They even enclosed some Starlight mints and some Handquilting Needles as a Thank You! So if you like a bargain and love online shopping check them out. They have tons of other fabric too!
