Robots and Rainbows

Okay, so, I'm in a but of a lull in terms of sewing.  Well, maybe it's a lull in actual project completion!  Instead of sewing the past few nights, I  1) sat down with my hubby and watched a movie (which was wonderful), 2) doodled out a robot on graph paper to see if I can paper piece one for the back of Elliott's quilt:

and 3) went to my first ever sewing class last night.  This has left little to no room for actual project completion of any sort! 

On a happy note. 

I wanted to share some lovely fabric that I got in the mail last week - it's from the Far Far Away III collection by Heather Ross and has been out for a while (though I just stumbled upon it recently due to my 'newness' to fabric shopping)! All I have to say, is 'Guitars in Pink'

The fabric is partial linen and the feel of it is wonderful. I generally buy quilting cotton, as most of my time is spent on actual quilting, but after making the penguin backpack I knew that I needed some other types of fabric to explore creativity options! The problem is, I just don't want this material to get dirty, so I'm not sure what to use it for (like making a kids bag is out of the question)! :)

There are still some shops that have this material and others in the collection available, like Bloomerie, but I think it's getting scarce! 

On a happier note.

I was able to finish this 34x34 section of the back of Elliott's quilt.  I still have a long way to go with more scrappy sewing, but it's coming along!


On an even happier note.
I stumbled upon this wonderful reminder in Arlyn's room this morning.

I love little reminders like this. 
I hope you're all having a rainbow filled day...and if you're not, one must be on its way!

  1. Your sketch for paper piecing looks awesome... and ambitious. You go girl! All it takes is guts to do most things, I think. Love how your top turned out!
