When inspiration hits, you have to run with it

What started off last night as a pile of fabrics to "eventually" or "possibly" use in the new baby's quilt

Had me lying awake at five this morning begging to be brought out into something like this

Then a sale at the local quilt shop added these beauties

And now tonight I will be busy cutting lots of squares to make 99 Half Square Triangles.
I will let you know how it all goes.

Oh and tomorrow is the big day when I get to learn how to use a long arm quilting machine!  Happy Weekend, friends!



  1. OOO HST's? lovely!! have fun tomorrow with the longarm

  2. Yay! Have fun with the long arm! I'm hoping to learn soon too!

    Beautiful fabrics, can't wait to see the final quilt.

  3. I love all the fabrics you've pulled. It's going to be a stunner!
