|My parcel has arrived!|
|Let's see what's in the box..|
But don't think that I left my package untouched! I must confess that I came home before WW, opened my package, took photos of all the contents, demonstrated a quick cut for my husband and then packed it all back up and ran out the door.
|What shape will we make?|
|How about a drunkard's path..|
This morning I took my box over to my MIL's house and introduced my brand new Accuquilt GO! to her new home. I have named her Florence, or Flo the GO! for short. Once again I ceremoniously unpacked my box, and gave Flo her own dedicated workspace.
|All my new toys (well, 2 dies are on back order)|
|In front of the window? Why not!|
|Actually, perhaps over here would be better.|
While I was super keen to get the Harry Potter quilt that I am making for Bean as a Christmas present going, I discovered that my "4 inch squares" are not all quite 4"... some are just a fraction short, which presents a problem as far as accuracy goes. Sigh. So maybe we might not be doing the split drunkard's path in the HP prints, although I can probably still incorporate it into the overall design somehow.
|Harry Potter Fabric laid out (not in any order/design)|
Instead of getting the cutting started now that I need time to think, I decided to lay out all my squares to see how much fabric I had compared to the size of the wadding. Total HP prints are nearly half. With coordinating fabric squares, nearly the full top. So I still need to go buy some fabric (oh what a tragedy!) which is perfectly timed with a mommy fabric shopping playdate we had pencilled in for tomorrow! I want to try out the owls from The Tulip Patch and make some Hedwig blocks for the corners of Bean's quilt, so I will look out for some fabric specifically for that, too.
|Mary's (The Tulip Patch) Roly Poly Owl Block|
While laying out the HP fabric the power went off for a while, so I finished playing with the fabric, packed up, outlined all my dies with permanent marker and went home to make lunch before taking Blossom to kindy.
