You know how I said I felt less guilty about buying more fabric because I'd finished Corvin's quilt...
(Cue intense music)
Okay. It didn't just magically show up... I knew it was coming. If you don't know about MSQC, check them out. They offer up a new daily deal each day - usually a Layer Cake or Jelly Roll for around half price. The other week there was a Layer Cake (Pack of 10" squares) on sale that was just perfect for Mom. Her birthday is right around the corner so I snagged it. (turns out it was too perfect... she saw the daily deal too, and bought it for herself. But you can never have too much fabric, right???)
Since its flat rate shipping, I decided to add in a couple charm packs for myself... you know - just to make the shipping cost worth it!
To assuage my guilt, I decided I better get moving on my other QotGs. I spent part of the weekend cutting the plain squares for the bear paws, and the sashing pieces for the pinwheels, so no time like the present to sew.
I decided to tackle the pinwheels first. It's a lap quilt for the livingroom so it's much smaller than the queen-sized bear paws. With the help of my snoopervisor
I don't have a backing picked out yet, but I was eyeing up my stash, and I actually have a chunk of pink and brown flannel that may work if it's big enough. I think a flannel back will make it nice and snuggly!
