I just had to do it!!  After all, it was a sale! I bought five yards of black Kona cotton. It was on sale for $4.95 per yard at Crafts Direct. It was tempting to buy other colors, but I did hold firm and only bought the black. (Do I get a gold star for that?)  Did buy 1/2 yard of dragonfly fabric so that I can make a gift for a good friend of mine who loves dragonflies. Thought that was a very good reason to purchase more fabric.  LOL  

Attended Featherweight club this week. One of the attendees, Sarah, had her challenge project (not due until August) almost completed. The challenge is to make a "disappearing 4-patch" quilt with only "solid" fabrics.  An example of the project is in the new magazine, "Quilty - Jan/Feb issue," by Mary Fons.  We can make our quilt any size, just can't use batiks or tone-on-tones. What part of not doing the project until the night before it is due, do some not understand??  After all, I am a regular member of procrastinators anonymous.  TeeHee

Currently, there is a mess in the studio. I am working on a string quilt and the strings are dumped out on the floor. Quite a few blocks have been completed but the pile of strings just does not seem to get any smaller. I just know they reproduce like rabbits over night. Plus, there are more strings piled on the sewing cabinet. Where do they all come from??

Hop over to Judy's Patchwork Times and see what others are doing:



  1. Good job holding steady on the purchase! lol I am getting to the point I need black and white and I buy them in large quantities when I do! Would love to be part of a FW club, too bad I live so far south! Boo-hoo.

    1. Deb, We would love to have you at FW. There were about 14 of us meeting on Thursday. I too try to keep a fair amount of black, white and other neutrals on hand and buy when they are on sale. Hugs, Beth

  2. I would probably fall for the Kona sale too! Love the dragonflies that you got and I really like the D4P in solids - I just finished one in Christmas fabric :)

    1. I have done some D4P blocks for a charity quilt, now I just need to get one started in the solids for our FW challenge. I'll bet your quilt in the christmas fabrics was beautiful. Sarah did such a nice interpretation of the D4P. Hopefully my friend will like her gift made from the dragonfly fabric. She likes everything that has dragonflies.
      Thanks for stopping by, Hugs, Beth
