Lots of Updates!!

It has been a craft-happy week! And now I have something to show y'all (and blog about!)...

Quilt 1:
Central Park Jelly Roll - by Kate Spain

I already had 2 charm packs of this fabric, but now that I have this this jelly roll I was finally able to dig in and get started on this quilt! (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE! this fabric??) Saturday I spent the day quilting away .... I took up the kitchen and the whole living room floor, ha!

Quilt 2: I've also made progress on the So Charming quilt ... I have about half of the black frames sewn. Once I finish them all I'll be sure to document my progress for y'all to see.

Quilt 3: And the quilt I'm probably most excited about at the moment (but, then again, I love them all!!!) my 3rd quilting WIP -- a precious baby quilt for a little girl due in July ... On top of being a project that should piece together quickly, it's made up of a beautiful soft colored palatte that will be fun to work with.

I bought the fabric from a quilt shop I found on my drive home from NJ this weekend. It was my first quilt shop experience. I was in awe!!! All these fabrics that I usually only see online were right there in front of me to touch and play with!! I ended up choosing some fabrics from the Sunkissed line by sweetwater. I'm so excited to make this. Here are the fabrics I chose.

I also added the green fabric at the top that I'm thinking will be a border fabric and the SO SUPER SOFT pink dot fabric for the backing.

They are calling for snow/sleet in Baltimore ... maybe I'll be lucky enough to not have school - and then I can quilt all day tomorrow! =) I can hope!!!
