My Little Pretties ...

Finally!  A chance to get an outdoor pic of the top I made from the Charm Pack Cherry pattern.

And yesterday I got a chance to do a little shopping at Hobby Lobby and picked up some grey dots for the backing.  After she measured out what I needed there was a wee bit left (just over a half yard) so I took it all.  You can never ever have too much of either grey or dots right?  

I still need something for binding.  I was hoping for some grey/white stripe the same shade of this grey dot, but alas, not to be found (yet). 


And just because I love it - another pic! 

And more of my haul from Hobby Lobby.  I always forget that they have fabrics there.  It's not all that far, but it's in a direction I never travel. Their selection is not large, but they have some really cute / pretty fabrics.

The green, and green/grey/black/white is for BabyGurl's baby girl's (due in July) diaper bag.  BabyGurl does not care for pink, but she loooooovvvvves green. 

The school print, and the alphabet print (that's duck canvas) came from fabric.com (I've been shopping with them a lot lately); all the others came from Hobby Lobby yesterday.  The puppies are flannel.  
So, I am going to be busy busy busy.  And I just ordered more fabric today, for BabyGurl's baby girl a baby quilt (again, light on the pink!)

  2. Beautiful quilt and the polka dots are perfect! Looks like you have some beautiful additions to your stash too!

  3. Summer Freshness! Yes, you can NEVER have too many dots and grey is such a versatile color. I love Hobby Lobby! I have one dangerously close by -- they carry corduroy too. Eek! Love the subtle colors in the last photo. I also LOVE fabric.com

  4. Pretty fabrics! I've found some cute prints at Hobby Lobby too. A word of caution - prewash each fabric, separately. In December, I had a print from HL bleed very badly. There was black in the print, and there were greyish splotches all over the white and pink in the print after washing. Fortunately I had washed it by itself so it didn't ruin anything else. HL was very good about taking it back and giving me a refund.

  5. I love your gray solid and the polka dots for the backing! I'm working on a Charm Pack Cherry, too. My print charm packs gave some gray in them, so I may go with that polka dot for my backing too. I have also found lots of fun things at my local Hobby Lobby. Their fabric's always on sale! 😊

  6. your quilt is going to be amazing with those gray dots on the back! A stripe would be cool for the binding- you could do an aqua if you can't find gray! and love your HL fabric finds!

    Thanks for linking to Needle and Thread Thursday!
