Mid-Month Check in & new projects on the "future TO DO" list.

Tea Party:

I was browsing blogs and fell in love with Tea Party from Wendy's Quilts and More Blog.  I love everything about it so much that I ordered it.  It arrived in a surprisingly fast manner all the way from Australia.  I did not get the kit, but I do love the fabrics. I don't know what fabrics I'll use yet, but look at these delicious sets I received in the mail recently. 

I won the jelly roll at the Panguitch Retreat.  The fat q's are Lori Holt.

In Panguitch, My friend, Brenna, was working on the cute dresdon block below.  I am in love!  I straight away ordered the ruler.  It has not arrived yet.  Yes, I have been a very bad girl!

Just look at the little Gingham Dresdons with the stars in the middle.  I ordered the ruler from Missouri Star Quilt Company. 

Also at the Panguitch Quilt Walk Retreat, I fell in love with some fabric a lady was sewing.  Further inspection revealed it was Tula Pink's Everglow Collection.  I got right on Etsy and purchased a half yard bundle of the animal print - my favorites.  While there, I won "Vendor Bucks" - $20.00.  I had been eyeing the whole fat quarter bundle from this collection, but decided it was more than I wanted to spend.  After winning the money, I decided to go for it.  Look at the little fish in the water with the hippos and the cute flowers on the elephant's behind!

I am keeping my eyes out for a great pattern that will show off these prints and not distract from them.

I found this kit of Tilda prints for 50% off.  I didn't love the quilt on the pattern, but I loved the fabric.  (Kit pattern discarded).  I decided they will be perfect for my Ella Maria Deacon Quilt that will likely be a block of the month for myself in 2025.  I went ahead and ordered other Tilda prints to go with it.  I plan to use  solid white background which I already have in my stash.

Another angle, just incase you needed another look.

Ella Maria Deacon Pattern

Yes, a bad girl am I, but a very happy bad girl.  Here are some other recent purchases...

The low volumes will go in my stash.  The others?  I have not decided yet.

The background fabric in the Tilda kit was a denim colored blue.  I used it for my barnyard background.  Love these cute little animals.

They are a quilt top now!

Finished another quilt top!

Chookshed Challenge Mid-Month Linky Party is sbelow.  How are you doing in June?  Mine is still in the same place it has been for a year.  I hope to get to it this week.
