I had to use up a bunch of vouchers at Calico & Ivy (um, yeah, my old boss and my friends are the coolest) and I actually didn't want more yarn (I'm trying to cut down on the stash) or fabric (ditto). I looooved this quilt. It's all the Katie Jump Rope series, by Denyse Schmidt. One giant log cabin design, with panels of irregulat widths, plus some odds and sods of random quilting on the back (most of it is the brown floral, though). I ummed and ahhed over the price, thinking "but I could buy the fabric for a third of the price and make it myself!" Then I remembered that I can't quilt, don't have the time for it, and don't have the inclination for it.

Bought quilt it was. I heart it. It's an excellent curled-up-on-the-couch-watching-so-you-think-you-can-dance quilt.

That is gorgeous.

And I'm slightly embarassed by how much I'm enjoying and looking forward to 'So you think you can dance'.

Wowow, excellent choice! I think the choosing of a finished object was a great idea, something to remember your old job by (err, if that is a good thing! :P).

Beautiful quilt, boy do I love log cabins.

it 'tis a lovely quilt. a fine purchase.
and the weather is fantastic now for a quilt. Personally we watch 'Singing with the stars', and I burn my hands on the nasty acrylic that I'm making a log cabinesque blanket for my father-in-law.

autumn is here soon right?
loving the cool weather
