A sew-filled weekend

Kevin and I didn't really have any plans this weekend (well one party that we skipped on since I was running behind schedule, and it was raining and I dont' like going out in the rain, we stayed home instead!) so we stayed home and I got a ton of cutting and sewing done.
I finished cutting and sewing the house blocks for Victoria's Block Party.
I ended up getting 25 house blocks sewn together, and around 40+ 10 1/2 inch squares.
(Now I just need to get to the post office and mail them to her!!)

I cut and sewed together two star blocks for our AMQG June Challenge.

I cut out and sewed together a quilt top for a baby quilt (following the basic directions from Oh, Fransson! (And cut out the pieces for another one, I just need to sew it together.)

And I washed and ironed the fabric I had purchased a while back.
(As I put it all away I decided I really do need to stay away from fabric shops for awhile, I have so much fabric!! I wanted to purchase some online over the weekend, but I quickly deleted my cart and got off line so I wouldn't be tempted anymore!!)

I hear ya on the "stay away from fabric shops" comment! I walked by my local shop earlier this week and had to go in and get a yard of Kaffe Fassett that was in the window begging for me to purchase! I am giving it away later this week in honor of my 100th posting on my website. Love your blog, BTW!
