Before I start working today (yes, it's sunny out but it's also cold and I'm feeling anti-social) I wanted to put in a quick plug for Cindy's Fabrics. I ordered another 4 sets of her 5-1/2 inch I Spy squares for Arman's quilt-turned-playmat (and suggestions on fabric to use as the backing for this are much appreciated) and she's been just wonderful. I've emailed her with a list of characters and concepts that Arman likes or is learning, and she's been doing a fantastic job of hunting down just the right fabrics to make this quilt perfect for him. I can't tell you enough how responsive she's been, and how much effort she's put in for me already! I will definitely keep requesting these from her, and I highly recommend her to you if you're looking for something similar. She's got other stuff in her shop, but I've been so enamored with her I Spy squares that, honestly, I haven't really looked. :-)
What's everyone working on today? I finished the QFK quilt last night (just need to finish the binding now) and I have 32 of 63 blocks done for Alishia's string quilt too. Man, strings are fun and all, but I can tell I'm going to be burned out on them by the end of this. I'm thinking of starting on Mai's quilt today, to see how hard/fun/intense Hunter's Star blocks are. I just think that the one I saw here is so pretty, and would look really good with some red thrown in (as per Mai's favorite color combination). I guess I could start on Mom's Paddington quilt, but I've only just barely gotten all the parts in one place for that. In fact, I just realized that the backing fabric is actually still in the car. That one feels like it's not quite ripe yet. So I guess Mai and Alishia it is! :-)
Oh, and at some point I'm going to make something for myself...haven't figured out what yet, but it's going to be queen-sized to fit Nick's bed. Did I just hear the Jaws theme?
