Splurge

At one of my local quilt shops, Quilt Expressions, they mail you out a postcard during your Birthday month and you can go in and save 20% on your purchase. Since today was the last day of the month, and heaven forbid that postcard go unused, I ventured into the shop. I had intentions of buying some precuts as I've never purchased or used any before. Turns out, it would help if I knew what I wanted to make and who I wanted to make it for before going shopping for fabric. Sooo....I ended up with a quilt kit, spent way more than I intended to (especially considering I got 2 gift cards for my Birthday for a different quilt shop...but that means I still have them and can get precuts after I decide what and who they would be for).

This beautiful fabric is for this quilt pattern:

I'm super excited to start this quilt, but I think that it's going to have to be put away until after we're moved and settled in. If I start another new project I will never get this house packed! Maybe this quilt kit will give me the motivation I need to get through the moving process! Oh, well that and my new quilting space that I will have!
