I dang near missed To Do Tuesday this week… AGAIN. Thank goodness for quilty blogger friends who check on you when things seem amiss. You know who you are… and I am thankful for you!!
I did not finish my grungy windows quilt. The weekend was filled with house cleaning and errands. Cleaning is such a dirty word… but I couldn’t avoid it any longer. I was really torn between sewing and cleaning, but gave in to the more practical and necessary (that’s subjective in my case) chore. Since I have no quilty progress pictures to show this week, I’ll share a picture of the Tula Pink Eden bundle that I received last week. This was a birthday present from the Mister. Love that he knows the fabrics I love. We won’t talk about the pre-order email I received that I forwarded to him along with a “my birthday is coming up” comment.
Fantastic book by Amanda Murphy!
I also bought a book from Amazon by Amanda Murphy entitled Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book. It is fantastic! I always look at a blank quilt top and think, “Now what? What do I quilt? All over design? It would be fun to quilt the blocks individually, but…now what??” This book has ideas on how to quilt quite a few different blocks. Like a dresden, a churn dash, wonky star, log cabin, and many others. (I’m currently at dinner and don’t have the book in front of me to give more examples.) The designs are not difficult, and it’s simply a great way to get you inspired to quilt different designs. So happy I purchased this book!!
Ok, this week… I REALLY want to get this Grungy Windows top completed this weekend. Fingers crossed I will succeed!!

Happy Birthday! That pile of fabrics sure are eye-catching! Good luck with the c25k program! You go-getter, you! You keep teasing us by mentioning Grunge! You know how I love Grunge, so hope you give some sneak peeks soon.
Thanks! I keep petting the bundle of fabric when I walk by it. I just love it! I am really, really, REALLY hoping for a Grunge quilt top finish this weekend! I am excited to get a full picture of it, and then get it quilted! So close to being done!!!
Happy birthday. Your hubby seems like a smart man.
Thanks! He does pick up on the in-your-face hints rather well. Hahahaha!
