Cutting Boredom

We took a quick trip to the east coast to spend some time with family last weekend, so I'm down to the wire to do my cutting for retreat on Sunday. There's not much to blog about when you're cutting, cutting, cutting. In case you were wondering this is what 1000 triangles looks like.So to relieve the boredom this is what I'm thinking about...
I added a few borders to my Kaleidoscope quilt and now I have to figure out how to quilt it. Maybe straight diagonal lines emerging from the center???
I'm setting aside scraps to finish off my Josephs's Coat quilt. I have 3 half blocks to applique and add. Almost there.
Do you have favorite fabrics that you just don't want to use up? As I cut into these 3, I prayed there'd be a little left. Too bad loaves and fishes didn't work on fabric.
Thank goodness there's always something new and beautiful. Took a little cutting break to play with LouLouthi.
I adore bicycles and I'm eyeing my new stash...
that's been added to my old stash...
It makes me want to break the boredom and go for a ride!

  7. I'm dying to know where you purchased the new bike fabric! Apparently I'm living under a rolck because I haven't seen it, and I, like you, love bicycle fabric! The baskets on the bikes are to die for!
