Good Morning party people... This weekend, the agenda is BIGGGGG --- and LONNGGGG but guess what, I have a sitter so I could stay up all night if I need to. But that is highly unlikely because I require sleep to function.

Yesterday, Loren and I took a lunch trip to Hobby Lobby to purchase the fabrics for our "Easy Lap Quilt(s)" from the book Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. First of all, the sales lady was rude but whatever - we were pretty giddy from finally finding the fabric that we wanted to use. It was raining terribly and we had to scarf down hamburgers in her car before we went in but whatever--- we just wanted our fabric.

It was less of a challenge to choose once I got in there. I decided that whatever theme that I picked for my boys would be the theme that I used for their room. I went with cowboys! Is this fabric not precious?? I can't wait - I'm not sure that I will get it right away but hopefully I will be patient enough to get through the first quilt and the second will be a breeze. These will be at the end of their bed. I haven't decided whether to use navy or red comforters but I have plenty of time to think of that since I will be painting our master bedroom this weekend!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Hopefully, I'll be able to check in with updates!


  1. I have yet to finish an actual quilt. I wish you much success! I can't wait to see it when you're done.

  2. I'm pretty scared myself. I have no idea how this works... We'll see though! Its good that I am not a perfectionist!

  3. The COWBOY theme sounds really CUTE...good luck with your quilt:)



feedback please!!! i love it!
