A few weeks ago I started piecing a fun pattern called Chic Sisters by Sew Kind of Wonderful. If you are a regular blog reader you know I love those patterns and the Quick Curve Ruler. I bought a bunch of Zen Chic ‘Modern Background Essentials’ for this quilt at Fabriculous and got right to work on this quilt. Well I guess I was too excited piecing it as I didn’t notice I had lost one of the light background fat quarters and then I cut one of the dark background fabrics wrong and it said right in the pattern ( they even underlined it) to make sure “all fabrics are right side up before cutting”. Whoops! Forgot to turn one pile and ruined that fabric. So I was one light block short and one dark block short. Drat! Then I found the light fat quarter I was missing at the back of a drawer!
So a quick call to my favorite fabric shop Fabriculous and they came to my rescue and cut up what I needed! While I was making that order I thought why not buy a new Bernina while I was at it! Okay I had been eyeing it for awhile now and they just came out with the cutest design on it so how could I resist…I mean it has Dandelions on it! And its blue and grey…it matches my quilt! Look how pretty she is and she quilts like a dream. I needed a new lighter weight machine to take to retreats and guild UFO days as my Janome is so heavy.
So now I have a new machine and fabric to finish this quilt top. Yeah it’s pieced!
Now to figure out how to quilt it and find the time!
