S U P E R B O W L   S U N D A Y!

Yes it's prime time sewing for those of us who don't like football and can escape from our partners without them knowing your not around.  As long as you keep the snacks a coming!  I on the other end love the game and can't wait till each new commercial is aired.  We have a friend coming over to join us today--a female friend who also enjoys the game.  Don't know who to root for since our San Diego Chargers aren't playing.  I'm sure I'll be rooting for the underdog unless my DH shows that he is more passionate about one of the two teams...  I've prepared for the long afternoon watching the game with two binding projects.  So I'll actually be accomplishing a few things today.  For our "game food" I've got corned beef, Swiss cheese, some sauerkraut, and seedless rye bread for some Rubens.  Sound tasty?

Did you receive your March/April 2011 issue of Quiltmaker yet?  I did on Friday and I'm so excited about a pattern in it that I'll be sure to make.  Perennial Petals by Caroline Reardon.  I don't have any piece large enough for the background and that part of this project won't be scrappy...well maybe I'll need to rethink that part.  I definitely have enough batiks for the "petals".  Hmm, scrappy neutrals just might work.  Get this issue it's a good one.

I've been sewing a little bit this week but can't say that I actually used enough to even get to a FQ.  I assembled a block for Sunshine Quilt Guild's BOM that I always participate in.  For years I've been doing this and only once have I won the blocks...does it seem to you this happens or are you lucky to have won a better percentage than just participate?  So for this week here's my stats.

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 53 yards
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD: 6.25 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2011: 46.75 yards

Did I ever zero in on that pattern - and it really would be stunning with a light scrappy background, however, would you use "other" cotton with your Batiks? That would be my dilemma - guess I am too much of a purist, but I do have several light Batiks.

Also, I love, love the Dinosaur Games pattern color option on page 37. In my attempt to not make star quilts, I can definitely see this one with some focus fabric and all those checkerboard pieces coming off my design wall and if I needed a child's quilt the dinasaur one would be perfect. I just love the layout. Good magazine this month. Judy C

Hey you NEED another project,

Yes my discount was on the entire purchase, I feel good that I limited my buying to 8 yards of fabric.

Enjoy the game.

I'll be looking for my copy, with all the snow, the mail has been slow here.

Great stash busting numbers!

I got my copy too, but I am drawn to the scrappy baskets in Bonnie's article. I think scrappy neutrals for the background of Perennial Petals would be pretty.

I got mine too and noticed that quilt out of all the others. I've always loved that block pattern. Just can't all anything else to my 'list' at the moment. I'll just sit back and wait for you to post the final quilt when YOU make it! LOL!

I was happy with the final score of the game. I did some binding work on my lap quilt and got it all done. It was a good game.
I know you will be making the Bonnie quilt, I haven't seen it yet. When will your next wild flower be done? lol
