I wanted a sewing project, but couldn't seem to find just the
right fabrics in my stash to coordinate with each other.
So I wasted the last few days as far as
accomplishing anything useful.


Yesterday I went browsing at
Fat Quarter Shop
and fell in love with this bag style and fabric.
And... it came in a kit!!

The fabrics are covered with
watermelons and cherries.
Click here to see the fabrics in all their glory.

I was also looking for fabric for a table runner and

found this wonderful summery collection...

Fresh Squeezed!

And it came in a 'Jelly Roll' already cut for me!!

Thank you Moda fabrics.

of watermelon thrown in)


several yummy quilts made from it.

I had the fabrics sent 2-Day Mail.
No patience whatsoever!!
So... today I'll clean and Thursday I'll be all set to
sew, sew, sew.

Make this a GREAT day at your house!!

That purse is so cute Joni! I can't wait to see yours finished. And you're a bad influence -- I popped over to fat quarter shop to check out the fabric -- it's so cute I had to close the window -- I don't need any more fabric!!!

You're sewing pics are so delightful and I just love that fabric bag. I am sure these colours reflect your bright and bubbly personality.
