On typical Saturdays I take my girls to the Farmer's Market for veggies and gluten-free baking. Today was not typical....The Pixie slept in and both girls wanted to hang out in their pj's for a few hours. So I let them.

By the time they had been sufficiently fed, dressed, and allowed to have unreasonable tantrums it was too late to hit the farmer's market. We still wanted to go shopping, so we went to a fabric store we don't usually shop at because they were having a sale. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I have no idea what these are but they're pretty and they were immediately chopped up and added to stash.

The other three huge cuts were purchased with the House Of Love in mind. Remember House Of Love? I has been waiting to be finished for months. I still love it.

These are destined for backing and binding. What do you think? Will it look good? Do you have any great ideas about how to quilt it? I have no!

I've been on a roll with blocks for Rambo Bright...the total number of large blocks is now 37 out of 49.

 I have also been toying with the idea of starting a long term piecing long term it would take a year just to make the top (one block per week).

 Or maybe I could get a little feedback from the couple who will be receiving Rambo Bright. Maybe they hate it and I have to keep it.

 Perhaps I should consider entering it into a quilt show. I think all local quilt shows happen in the fall, though.

 I may just content myself knowing that the recipients thrive on colour because they are crazy artists. They will love the quilt.

 If I end up showing off this quilt it will be brought to my LQS for brief admiring. And more pictures will have to be posted here, of course.

So, what do you think? Love them? Hate them? Passively indifferent?

Saturday's Free Confession of the Week: I have a new addiction. I can't help myself. It's kale chips. Cheezy Chipotle Raw Vegan Kale Chips. Ask me for my recipe if you dare. You'll get addicted, too.


  1. I love all the bright colours xx as to quilting your House of love why not start with simple outlines and see how you feel... getting started is often the hardest part... when you do the inspiration usually follows xx

  2. I love the brilliant colors and the pattern you've made with the next to the last photo. It's beautiful!
