Le Petite November

For November's Le Petite project was butter churn a pattern by Sherri Falls of This & That. I made mine using a Happy charm pack and some Kona white. I ordered some additional fabric from this line to make this quilt a little bigger (this is way to small for my taste). I have order pink polka-dots and one of the purple prints from this line to hopefully make it big enough to be a baby quilt. Of course I waited and waited to order it and by the time that I did order the fabric it was to late (the fabric is going to be delivered tomorrow...). Again I had a lot of fun making this small project, they are very satisfying since they can be finished in an afternoon. I can't wait to see everyone else has made and see what is up for December.

Layer Cake Quilt Along : block 1

Lately I have been wanting to get more involved with the Internet community and I thought that this layer cake quilt along would be the perfect opportunity. So I have been in love with Bliss and I have been wanting to cut  in this layer cake so bad. Here is my Alabama Spinning block, hope you like it. I can't wait to see everyone's blocks looks like!

Stash Report 11-14 (on the 11-15)

In: 20 3/4 yards

I couldn't help myself above all fabric was having a great sale! I got 4 1/2 yards for backing for my make life... quilt, but the rest of it is just fun stuff that I like.

Out : 5 1/4 yards

This is a fig tree quilt pattern made with 3 tweet tweet charm packs and 2 1/4 yard kona chartreuse. I have the first two blocks finished. At first I wasn't sure if I liked the green for backing, but I really like the way that it is turning out. It's nice using something other than white as the back ground, I think I will be doing this more often.

Totals :
In: 20 3/4 yards
Out : 5 1/4 yards
YTD : + 14 3/4 yards

This week isn't going to be good either I found another good sale and Pairsville is out now... I should have a lot going out because I have to get a lot of projects finished this week. Keep your fingers crossed that I am able to get everything done by Thanksgiving.
