A few more Tag Alongs completed and ready for the next boutique. I made an order from Connecting Threads last week and it arrived! Little sweet charms spilling out of the box just for me.
I picked out ones called Oasis, 1930's, Princess, and Sweet Pea. Had to have 4 packs of each just in case....and they are priced so inexpensively too.

Aren't they just to drool over? What shall I make?

Ordered this book on using them. Of course I had to read quickly through the first time to see what I wanted to make. I can slowly devour it later.

This is it for sure. Can't you just see a cute little baby cuddled up with this?

But this book by Ricky Tims called Kool Kaleidescope is what I couldn't believe. Every one of the quilts in this book is amazing!! And the process Ricky describes seems almost easy. You just sew strips together, cut out with templates, sew them together in wedges and you end up with a materpiece. He even says it is no use trying to plan the placement of fabrics because the finished quilt will surprise you every time. I can hardly wait to start gathering fabrics for this one.

We spent the day in Logan with Baby Ellie and our daughter, Nicky and her husband, Patrick. What a fun day. Ellie might just be the cutest baby ever! She always has a smile for everyone and even came right to us this time. Maybe it was the soft pink bear or musical lion we brought as bribes. Sure was fun.

Happy Quilting! Lynda

Is there anything better than a package of goodies just for you??? I don't think so ;). Are you contemplating making one of the quilts from the Kool Kaleidoscope book? I've got it too, but they are way out of my league (ability wise speaking).

It really looks as though you had a great box of goodies there. There's nothing more exciting than getting new fabrics and a couple of interesting books at the same time.
