OK, First of all, I deserve a freaking medal for resisting this one this week:
And they had free shipping on top of that! I almost caved, but by that point most of it had sold out so I decided to just Let It Go!!
So, as I’ve mentioned in my “ignoring my deadlines” Wednesday posts, I needed to buckle down and figure out what I am doing about some of these swap projects I signed up for. I am not sure how much I can say (since it is a secret partner swap) but my schnitzel and boo mini quilt is at the top of the stress list. I thought it was a mid July deadline, but it isn’t. It’s the beginning of the month. So, using my partner’s likes and comments and changing my mind a lot, I finally chose a pattern – Jaybird Quilts Northern Lights. But I needed to get it!
So I packed up the kidlet and headed out to my LQS first thing Monday morning to see if they carry it. I knew they had the large pattern and ruler, so I hoped maybe they would have the minis as well. Well, they didn’t, but they could order it for me. So I had them do that and sweated the wait.
Thursday afternoon I picked them up. The clearance room is getting refilled (they wiped it out a couple months ago) and there are some good things in there, but nothing I was willing to jump on fabric wise. I’m trying to pretend to be good. However, I did pick up a couple of clearance patterns.
Back in the day, before I had the guts to quilt, I used to make doll clothes. I loved the ModKid doll clothes patterns. I really don’t make real people clothes, but I thought the chef set would be darling for the kidlet someday when he is into dress up. And, you know, why not get the skirt? I’ll never make it. I don’t even know if it’ll fit. But there it is. I want to know what she is looking at with such hopeful amusement.

They also have these fun buttons. I wanted some of them a few months ago, but didn’t get them and they sold out. So I grabbed a few this time. They are different sayings this time around, but I like these too.
And, here is the whole point of my post – My new mini patterns and mini ruler and a sneak peek at my mini quilt (in progress) -
And don’t forget to look for my mini quilt (and link yours!) in a future
