WIP Wednesday: New Canadian Fabric Spot!

It has been a productive week. I just started sewing down the back of the binding on my Hungry Caterpillar quilt! It looks like all that worry about my FMQ pebbles was unnecessary because the quilting looks amazing. Check out the free-style stitching I did in the white space.

Not bad, eh? I can't wait to pack this beauty up and send it off to my friend. It's such a wonderful feeling to make something special for someone you love.

I picked up two charm packs for Bungle Jungle from a new online shop called My Fabric Spot. Karen carries a ton of Kona Solids, organic cottons and really lovely designer fabrics. Best part? It's Canadian! I placeed my order on Monday night and my fabric arrived today. Inexpensive shipping and no customs charges? Now that's something to celebrate.

These charms are destined for a another baby quilt, this one for my cousin. I'm going to base the design on I made for Nita recently.

Using charms, this will sew up very quickly.  I'm thinking three or four wonky stars in gold, a thin royal blue border and a thick gold outer border. Sweet, simple and the perfect welcome for a new addition to our extended family.

And now for the weekly WIP list.
