Cutting...

I can't believe how quickly I cut the 391 pieces of fabric for my nephew's quilt top. 


Now if I'm really ambitious I'll start sewing it tonight.  My goal is to have a finished quilt by the end of the month.

Planning...

I've taken the first steps to making my own version of Ara Jane's fantastic Plus Quilt.  I have most of the fabric picked out (I just need one more in a yellow or a chocolate brown) and I have the quilt all planned.  Finished it should fit my nephew's twin bed.



Now that I'm settled in Texas I went looking for a great fabric store near me, and I'm happy to report that less than five minutes down the street I found Cabbage Rose.  There are also a few other stores very near me, but I haven't explored them yet. 

Now to get cutting so I can show some progress soon.
