Moving moving moving

So, the internet man isn't here yet, so I am back at blogging, this time from the ipad, which is easier than the phone, but not as easy as the computer.....

I've found a few more personal stash boxes that got mixed in with the shop stuff, and a couple of random bolts of backing....and I know that I said that I would start May 1st, but as I am really tired of unboxing, and putting away, and all of the stuff associated with moving, I am going to start a few days early, and give myself a break this afternoon and evening and do some sewing, because I haven't touched my machine in two full weeks, with the exception of a 10 minute demo that I did at Cozy Quilt Shop this weekend, and to be honest that 18" seam really didn't count in my book....

So, here is the status of the room....


And this is going to be my first project. Nothing fancy. Just a quick and dirty strippy racer destined for my cousin in Ventura who wants a king....her bedroom has been blue and yellow for as long as I can remember....so I thought that these jelly rolls for Sunshine by April Cornell for Moda would be a great option. I am fairly certain that she doesn't read this blog, so I feel no guilt in announcing this to the world....besides! how can you be my accountability partners if I don't tell you what I am working on.....

As for how old this fabric is, I have no clue, except that it was purchased here in CA from Cozy Quilt Shop during a strip club Saturday (if you look closely you can see my name written on the tag). So, up to 9 years ago. I would guess it is closer to 7, since when I first moved here strip club still had 50 strips, and jelly rolls didn't exist.....you can also tell this is early on in the world of jelly rolls, before Moda pinked their edges, so within the first 18 months of the life of a jelly roll.....



So, I am off to the sewing room, and I'll let you know how it goes...

Happy Quilting!

Catherine
