Just in the nick of time.....

This little cutie arrived yesterday just in time for me to organise all the provisions for the quilt I am making this weekend at the quilting retreat. I was amazed it arrived so quickly from the USA. I ordered it (from here on sale for $16 US!) on Thursday and it arrived on Tuesday. How incredible is that! It is from the Moda Bake Shop by April Cornell and the fabric is called Spring Magic. I think it will be lovely in the "Triple Irish Flower Quilt" I have planned. Lots of pretty pinks and greens and, of course, roses.
This is another quilt on the go from the "Darla" range of fabrics by Tanya Wheelan. I love the brighter pallet of these fabrics.
And here is the Stacked Coins Quilt, I started ages ago from my scraps, pinned and ready to be quilted on the weekend.
And here is something actually finished and in the Etsy shop now....The Princess Cushion- Rose.
I have so many things planned for the weekend, I hope I can get at least one thing finished to show you....in between the laughing, talking and carrying on I expect to be going on....
2 more sleeps....

I'm so envious of your sewing girls weekend away. Even if you don't finish any of your projects I bet you will still have a great time.

I am sooo unhappy I can't make the weekend away. As it's turned out I am sick anyway so it's probably better for all not to catch anything! Love the stacked coin quilt. I have had some 1930's fabric in the stash for about a year now for an irish chain quilt, it will be my second one so can't wait to see yours. Have a great time I will be thinking of you all.

Hope you have a great weekend, Kathryn. I can understand how excited you must feel, indulging in a whole weekend of sewing - bliss! Your quilts are looking fabby. I really like the Darla range because it's quite a modern take on traditional florals (if that makes sense?!)
