Getting There

I reworked the Princess and the Pea. In the last post I had strips running perpendicular to the center of the quilt top. I decided I hated that so I cut them off, cut them up and will be using them as a coin border. That will be my next post. I love this now.

Something Fun for Me

I won this great little bundle of fabric from QuiltHome. I signed up for their weekly newsletter to enter the $50 weekly giveaway and was a winner the next week. I never win anything. How fun it was to shop for free!!

I ordered fabric just for me that I normally wouldn't have bought. I treated myself to the Princess and the Pea and coordinating fabrics to make myself a lap quilt that no one else will be allowed to use. :)

It is starting to take on a life of its own though as I keep adding rows and strips. I love the wonky look of this. It goes with the crooked ladder and the precariously perched mattresses.

Yesterday I found the most perfect remnant on the $5 table at Joanne's that will be perfect for the backing. More to come...
