Quilts for Kids and Online Window Shopping

What is happening...
I had a good day. Got the bathroom cleaned, did laundry, and finished the two quilts for Quilts for Kids. The weather was nice and the sun was out (for a little while). Did a bunch of window shopping on the computer. I love looking at different shops and wishing I had more money. LOL!

What I accomplished...
Like I said above I finished with the binding on both of my Quilts for Kids quilts. I love both of them. I made a boy quilt from their kit, it has a camping theme. Then I made a girl quilt with my own fabrics. I will have them off in the mail tomorrow.

Their fabric.
If you look about in the middle, you can see a BIG WHITE THREAD!! How funny is that!
 These are my fabrics.

I even finished these three Hexie flowers.
Sewing thought...
Do you have a favorite online shop to buy fabric from? I like Green Fairy Quilts, Quilt Taffy, Fat Quarter Shop, and Erica's Craft and Sewing Center. I have a few more but these are the ones that I have really liked. If you have any please share.

Sewing Goals...
I would like to get my two swap blocks done tomorrow. I already know what I am making so I want to get them done. I would like to see if I have enough of one fabric to make borders for my 12 Days of Christmas table runners. If I need to order more then I can do it while I have some money. I would like to also get started on my hexies for my flower swap.

PS I messed up on cutting my fabric for the H2H Challenge. I need to figure out what I am going to do about that. Darn I hate that.

  1. Both Quilts for Kids quilts came out wonderfully. Congrats on finishing - and all the housework too!
    I like Green Fairies, Cotton Charm, Fat Quarter shop (sales only as I think they are high) and you can't beat Connecting Threads for fabric or thread prices(plus they just had a huge book sale).
