Fun Saturday

I had such a fun day yesterday, Saturday's are just the best! I started out my day picking up my mom and taking her to breakfast. She lives an hour away so I try to get down there as often as I can but you know how that goes, the days just get away from me. After eating we went shopping, had to get a new pair of black shoes for a wedding in 2 weeks. Mother is 82 and is having a hard time standing for any length of time so we didn't tarry long. We had a nice visit and on my way home I stopped at one of my favorite quilt shops in the area and picked up a few things.
I am working on a Fig Tree pattern, a table runner that calls for 60 degree angles cut. Well, I must not have done it right since they didn't work when I tried adding the strips so I had to get more of the wonderful creamy fabric. I am still having trouble so I just put the kit away and will try it figure it out. I could use a recomendation on a good ruler to get the correct cut!
I love the new book I got, cool ideas for bits and pieces in my stash!

When I got home I decided I needed to finish up old projects, get rid of the guilt of starting anything else, and pulled out this, Circles of Scraps quilt. I started this in 2008 when I received my Spring/Summer 2008 Quilt Sampler magazine and put it away when harvest started. Well, I now have all the pieces cut so I just have to put the pieces together. I have used mostly Jo Morton fabrics so I am really loving it!

Hope everyone is having a great quilty Sunday!

Your project is pretty can't wait to see it finished. I am trying to finish up ufo's instead of starting new things too. It's a hard thing to do when you see all the lovely new fabrics and patterns out there.

Hello from Australia, I see you have some new Wrapped in Paisley fabric, I bet its beautiful. I want some but no one around here stocks it, I wonder if I could interest you in a swap. If you coud get me a charm pack like yours I would send you some fabrics from Australia, let me know what you think.
Love Leanne
