Little Green Quilters Update

I've put the Autumn Beauty blocks away. I just
could not get motivated to cut the sashing.

Instead, I pulled out the Christmas fabric bin.
I found a small baggie with scraps and started to play!

 I've also been making some blocks using a charm pack of modern fabrics. I plan to make potholders out of them.

I am a winner!
Kansas Troubles sent me a jelly roll and a mini squares pack of their line called Cattails & Clovers. I don't know what I will do with these yet, but the colors are beautifully rich.
And I won a copy of this magazine! It is Volume 4 and filled with fun new innovative blocks by creative designers.
I won a copy of Volume 1 a few years ago.  I used that first one to make my Christmas Sampler Quilt...the one that I hope to get fully assembled in the next few weeks. I will be posting pics soon.

Lastly....I bought my first Kaffe Fassett fabrics! Kaffe Fassett is a textiles designer....fabrics, quilts, needlework, name it.
I don't know that I will ever buy more of his fabrics, but I did want to own just a little because he is so inspiring. I am not sure what I will do with these 30 beautiful 6-inch squares! I am just enjoying their colors on my design wall.

You have such delicious eye candy on display!

Love your Christmas blocks, your potholder blocks, and those jazzy Kaffe
Fassett squares. I need some of those fabrics, too.

Congrats on your winning! I completely missed the posts this time around on winning the 100 blocks book. You will enjoy the Kansas Troubles fabrics. I didn't have a post this week on a UFO...must wait until after Thanksgiving now!
