Thursday Update (All fool's Day)

A beautiful first day of April here in Summerville. Although the ground is covered in Yellow pollen and if you open your windows it will be all over your floor and furniture! I made that mistake yesterday! My arms are sticking to my desk even though I wiped it off this morning. Oh well I still love spring anyway!
I worked on 2 projects this past week. The first an attempt at sewing a matching wallet to go with the new purse. 
The Pattern is Wonder Wallet by Lazy Girl.
I took these pictures at night and the flash washed the polka dots out!

I had been collecting black and white fat quarters and yardage for a black and white quilt. I decided that it might be to big of a project and went with a Pattern I found on sale online at the Fat Quarter Shop. It is Little Scraps from This and That ~Simplicity~ #125

The cutting went very quick!

The polka dot will be the backing.

The center went together very quick!

Finished top, now if I could just decide how to quilt it. I am thinking of hand stitching using a heavy thread such as DMC floss. Black on white and white on black. Or maybe I should just stitch in the ditch so as to not bother the design. Let me know what you think and have a wonderful easter weekend with your loved ones!

Oh I love the black and white. What fun fabric.

cute, I think I would stitch the ditch. But maybe doing it another way would be cute too.

So pretty. However you quilt it I'm sure it will be beautiful. We are heading up north to Portland to see Aunt Sue & John's dad & mom. I will be thinking about Elder Johnson while I'm there.
