Look at the amazing fabric that I picked up at my LQS on Friday night! As you know, trying to use some more modern fabrics, is my quilting resolution this year and these fabrics will be a part of it....Soul Blossoms by Amy Butler. I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet. Maybe something with bigger squares to highlight the larger prints. I'll need a solid fabric too. I've never used any grey solids in a quilt, in fact I can only think of one quilt where I've used any solids at all! Any ideas?

One Friday a month, I usually go to a potluck dinner at my LQS. We have a theme for the meal, bring a dish to share and everyone brings a project to work on. It's a great time to enjoy food, fun and friends! I finished the Basket Block designed by Sarah Vanderburgh for the Layer Cake Quilt Along last Friday during the January potluck. The fabrics on the sides of the basket handles are actually in the wrong places. The main fabric should have been on the top and the accent fabric should have been on the bottom. Somehow, I sewed them on the wrong way, but you probably wouldn't have known if I hadn't mentioned it. I didn't change it because it really didn't matter, but don't think I didn't consider it!

Has anyone else tried these delicious Hershey's Bliss chocolate candies? They are just amazing....way too good and somehow I have eaten way too many. Maybe sneak them in as an early treat for yourself before Valentine's Day or enjoy them while you are working on your next quilt!
