Rootbeer Float----Orange Soda Quilt along

It is a wonderful 70 degrees here today.  I did a little shopping and yard work, enjoying the sun.  I have blocks to start for my Sew Sew quilt group next week.  They are red, white and blue and the finished quilts will go to soldiers that are recovering before heading back on active duty.  The block that we choose was Arrowhead, I will post pictures as soon as I get them done.

I have also decided to join the Orange Soda Quilt along from the Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters book.  Mine is a collection of fabric and charm packs.  It's call Rootbeer Soda, the contrasting fabric is a brownish gray---

It's Finally Summer! And I'm Back Quilting!!!!

It has been a long snowy winter here in Alaska.  I haven't posted in a very long time, I know.  Late Feb. I got that flu, cold thing that lasted until the last week of school.  I know I should have gone to the Dr. but I didn't.  During this time I did Quilt a little----- Pictures coming very soon.

While I was sick I decided that I was going to start using all the Kaffe Fassett fabric 

I've been  collecting the last 10 years. So far I have all the blocks done for both quilts, next I have to begin putting them together.
