Fabric Love

Yesterday I had some fabric arrive in the mail that I ordered from Hawthorne Threads.  I just love buying fabric from there, the website shows off the fabric so well, and the shipping is reasonable for me.  It is amazing how much fabric can fit into one of those flat rate envelopes!

These red and blue fabrics are the ones I really set out to buy, but if I am paying the shipping, I always like to fill the envelope, you know?

With these I plan on finishing my first "bee" quilt.  Back in May I had everyone in one of my bees make these blocks for me:
I had sent out all of the red and aqua fabric I had for this quilt and unfortunately, I didn't receive one of the blocks back.  So, this now being November, I gave in and bought some more red and aqua fabric so that I could finish the block, and ultimately the quilt, myself.  I can't wait until I can finally enjoy this quilt!

Does anyone else have a project that they have on the back burner for one reason or another?  What reasons do you have for stopping work on a project before it is finished?


  1. It seems like I always have projects on the back burner. I am trying to finish up a cross stitch project I have been working on for TEN years so I can give it to my mother. It's soooo close to being done. But like you, I am waiting for a couple long overdue bee blocks to come in before I can finish up a quilt for my fiance.

  2. Oh please...I have soooo many projects on the back burner. One is this fabulous tossed nine patch that I designed to integrate the colors of the rainbow diagonally across the quilt with a black solid for consistency. But do I finish that? No...:(
