Guild BOM completed....

I got some sewing time in today and was able to make the guild BOM for the drawing and one for me. I was given the 'focus' fabric for the guild one... the print and had a tough time finding something to coordinate with it. I went with the dark brown and think it came out ok.

I decided that we really need a quilt for our bed that goes with our room - yellow walls and blue carpeting. So I found a bunch of this mottled blue and a few fQ's of a pretty yellow/gold that I think will look good as a quilt. The pattern is from Marsha Hahn's website and the pattern is called Chisholm Trail.

We did the first water class with Aidan on Saturday, who did great. No crying and he was good in the water, even kicked a few times! Of course he loved to slap the water with his hands too... to cause the splashing. I think grandma will have a blast in 2 weeks when she is visiting us from Florida. I told her to bring her bathing suit and she can take my place in the water that day. We did not get any pictures... maybe next week.

Oh, I finally went and picked out my fabrics for the LQS mystery that starts next Saturday..... all Batiks. I have never worked with batiks or done a 'real' mystery so it will be interesting to see how it turns out. The colors will be blues,greens, purples, and yellow. I hope it looks ok when it is completed. I had help picking out these fabrics from someone in the store. The print - purple with shades of green and blues goes well with the basic fabrics that I will get at the first class. The light blue and green are my light and medium background fabrics and the yellow I hope will make it pop, as that is the accent fabric. We'll see in a few months.

It has been crazy windy here last night and this morning... the remnants of Ike. No rain or damage just really windy.
Have a great day everyone.

I love your batiks. I was not a batik person until a year or so ago. They are really nice to work with. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The batiks look great. My first mystery quilt was also batiks and I loved it in the end. Have fun doing it - can't wait to see the results!
