That's a song from the '50's that I used to plunk out on my Grandma's piano. I am humming it right now because yes, today is a happy day. Bags are packed and I am off to my favorite state, Iowa, and a great quilting retreat! The whole weekend will be a happy weekend as spring arrives on Saturday and it's also National Quilting Day! I will be celebrating in an appropriate manner .......... I'll be sewing!
You've seen the fabrics in this photo before but now they are almost ready to be stitched into a quilt. This is a Quilt*A*Long project that Dana of Old*Red*Barn shared on her blog last summer. You sew 2-1/2" strips together and then cut them into square blocks. All the strips are sewn together.....14 strips total and each set of sewn strips yields three blocks for a total of 42 blocks. Gee and I thought I couldn't do math!! So, anyway, the next time you see these fabrics they will be a fully assembled quilt top and ready to be quilted. There's actually a possibility it will get quilted this weekend. You'll find out when I return next week. Til then.........Have a Happy Spring and Sewing Weekend!
P.S. Next Wednesday is the start of "Good Eggs Hoppin' Down the Bunny Trail Giveaway." My post on Tuesday will tell you the story and the link will be posted that will take you "hoppin' down that bunny trail to some fun Giveaways and great blogs!"
