Let's Make a List ...

Of all the "new to me" quilty things out there in the blogosphere that I am in love with ...
  1. This quilt pattern (wish it was available as a download).
  2. This chevron pillow.  I will make these FOR SURE.  And while we are on the topic of Oh Fransson, let's just talk about Elizabeth's book - The Practical Guide to Patchwork.  It kept me going through the sewing drought.  I didn't have time to sew so I would read about quilting.  At stop lights.  In bed.  While making dinner.  Wherever I could find an extra 30 seconds.  
  3. Rounded corners!  Binding is my arch nemesis.  Well, binding and a certain mother at my children's school but you don't want to get me started on that.  I am completely in love with rounded corners though.  I am going to give this a try.  I may also give this binding tutorial a try.
  4. My friend Greta's Postage Stamp quilt.  I mean, c'mon, it is amazing!  Quite jealous of that quilt. [Edit - Greta's quilt is back from the quilters.  Even more gorgeous than before.  Jealous.]
  5. This Hexagon Park quilt pattern.  I've seen it done up in AMH's Innocent Crush (which, if I am being completely honest, I do not crush on all that much - please don't hate me AMH, especially since we will be together in NYC in October).  I have a lot of that Innocent Crush fabric in my stash so I think this is an option to put it to good use.
  6. A Single Girl Quilt-along.  Awesomeness.  Nothing I am going to do, like, tomorrow but so amazed by what is shaking down there. 
  7. What I might do though, is a Single Girl pillow like the one on Fussy Cuts.  C'mon, seriously, how cute is the pom pom trim.  Fussy Cuts is a new to me blog that I am loving, loving, loving.  
  8. Red Pepper Quilts (can't pick one quilt).  Really?  I am not sure how all those quilts get done.  I have quilt finishing envy pouring out of me.  This is one of the reasons why.  You should see the back too.  Fabulous.

The list goes on and on.

PS - Another amazing thing.  How the arts and crafts community has bonded over disaster relief for Japan.  People have come up with so so so many amazing ways to raise money for those in need.  It is beyond amazing.
