frustrated but not stopping!:)

here are some fabrics that i can't wait to get my hands on. i bought them last summer when i was at the fabric shack and i just couldn't figure out the right pattern. well i think i found it!!! that is really exciting. the hard thing is i'm having trouble with my machine AGAIN!! but even though i'm frustrated i know that i can cut out this quilt and figure some things out like the size and all that good stuff. if i knew my machine a little better i'd probably know the problem right away. i misplaced the manual (yikes!!!) and so now i have to go online and try to find the manual. i'm not good at the putzy stuff like that.

anywho - i'm going to use this pattern!!! i love the raw edges. i've only done one raw edge quilt and i gave it away. this should be fun cuz it's been awhile. i love the colors and think i will throw some white in there. i love what white does to bright colors. i think i will find some other solids also. so that's the plan even though i can't sew it yet!

hope you are doing well and enjoy your day!!!


  1. Oh yeah. I'm thinking those fabrics are going to look fantastic with that pattern. Plus, those colors just look like summer, so I think it's the perfect stack to work on right now.

    I'm so sorry about troubles with your machine. :-( I'm so non-technical that I just panic when things break. I hope it's something small and simple that's easy to detect and even easier to fix!

    Looking forward to seeing your circles....

  2. Ooh, what a lovely pattern. Perfect for some fabric I have MY eye on. Can't wait to see your quilt!

  3. What a fun pattern! I used the fabric on the top of your pile on a quilt I made this past December. I would love it if you stopped by my blog to check it out. It's listed under the label "quilting." Happy Monday :)

  4. I love the pattern--that is going to be so fun in your fabrics! I have a few pieces of the fabric...but not enough to make a whole quilt with!!

  5. The fabrics are very nice and I checked out the link to the pattern you will be using. It is so cute. Would you show us a close up, after you wash it?
