Happy November, thank you thank you the election is almost over. After months of 5, maybe 6 campaign commercials in a row I’ve come to realize how raunchy politicians have become over the years. Fortunately the St Louis area doesn’t see many presidential commercials but we sure get a lot of Illinois and Missouri election related political adds.
Does anyone else receive several campaign flyers in the mail daily?
Now that’s what’s important here. November is a blog hop month for Island Batik and the Ambassadors will be sharing summer collections this month. The collections should be in shops next month so check them out and plan ahead.
The collection I received is Coco Cabana designed by Kathy Engle.
You could almost split this into two projects which I wish I had thought of before the sewing began, I kinda still did. In the photo above the top row of fabrics are from the foundations collection which are always available. The next three rows are Coco Cabana.
My day to share is November 10th and I have 2 lap quilts to show you. Here is a sneak peak.
And a sneak peak of fabric I chose for a second quilt, lovely fall colors.
Another project for this month is for AccuQuilt. They are updating some of the quilts in their gallery with more modern fabric and asked if I would be interested in making one of them. Of course.
They sent 15 dies which I will be sharing with you throughout the month however you will have to view the finished project on the AccuQuilt blog, will let you know when.
The stack above is what they sent to me and includes dies for applique, strips and patchwork. More details to come on each die as I start the quilt.
Join me every Thursday for Put your foot down linky party.
