Quilting this and that...

Not too much sewing to report on. I just got home from a 10 day trip to California. Lots of playing and giggling and a bit of fabric buying. We made 2 trips to Maisonette and I added to my Loulouthi collection and my Joel Dewberry Heirloom collection.
This cute cupcake fabric will be a new pillow for the soon-to-be four year old. I made a "three" pillow last year and I was asked to use prettier fabric for this years addition. I hope these cupcakes (with some glitter that doesn't show in the picture) will suffice!
We also took a trip to the Long Beach Quilts International show. I'll have some quilt pictures next week. I did pick up this layer cake of Treasures and Tidbits by Piece O'Cake. I'm hoping it may work for this American Jane pattern I've been wanting to do.
I also bought an Oliver + S pattern for an adorable dress. I've heard their patterns are extremely well written - I'm going to give it a try - fingers crossed - it has buttons up the back!
So tomorrow I'm headed off on another quilt retreat. I'm feeling a bit unorganized, but I have fabric and a sewing machine - so I think I'm good to go.
Triangles will keep me busy!
And I squeezed in an hour today to start my STL Modern Quilt Guild challenge using Jay McCarroll's Habitat collection. We're allowed to add solids only. I'm cut out with 2 blocks made and I think I'm on a roll.
