…but nothing just right quite yet.

I’ve been super busy with tons of stuff recently – sorry the ol’ blog is feeling the pain!

Otherwise, we’re up to TWENTY SEVEN THIRTY branches of the Modern Quilt Guild!! Can you believe it!?! And more are in the works.  Amazing stuff!  Modern quilters unit!

Simple Squares

Got the baby quilt top all finished up. Super simple and quick to put together – all I’ve had time for recently!

Lots of polka dots and cute animals! Perfect for a baby.

Thanks for all of your kind words about Project Runway. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season holds!

And on a different note, I’m sure you’ve all already seen the amazing Craft Hope etsy shop that’s raising money for Doctors Without Borders in Haiti. Perfect place to go shopping if you want to.

Dear Chocolate Brown,

I’m leaving you for gray.  I’m sorry.  I hope it doesn’t hurt your feelings too much.  I’ll be back to visit a lot I’m sure.  But for now, I need to be with gray.  I hope you understand.  Look at my latest quilt top.

Gray Rectangles

Clearly we’re meant to be together.

Love,

Alissa

Obsessed?

You know you’re obsessed with fabric when you have a dream that your one yard of gray Kei Dots was exposed to the H1N1 virus and you’re being required to mail it to the CDC.  Yes.  I actually had that dream. It was more of a nightmare, really!  I’m sure that you readers can understand.

But I guess that the gray dots were on the brain because I’ve started a new quilt with them.  First I pulled all of the basics that I currently can’t get enough of:

Rainbow

I love a rainbow!  Notice the 100% lack of purple.  That’s not because I chose to leave it out.  That’s because I have zero.  Absolutely none.  And you know what, I’m not sure that I mind so much. Anyhow, some editing was in order so I came up with this.

And a bad photo of the very very beginnings of the next quilt:

Beginnings

I’m thinking that including gray solid is in order. We’ll see what it becomes…
