A Blissful Saturday

You know any day I can play with this fabric, it's a very Blissful day...I've been working on Camden's big Short Story today to match her little Short Story doll carriage quilt. What am I going to do when this project is done...I don't have anymore Bliss projects.

I also got this month Designer BOM block from The Fat Quarter Shop done......gosh I'm loving this fabric too...it's so much fun! I have no clue why there's a pink tint in the white background...it really isn't there...

And all day, my wonderful scissor fob from Darlene kept my scissors safe and sound...I always knew right where they were. Thank you my friend!

I must apologize for being remiss in giving credit to the designer of the quilt in my last post...AmandaJean from Crazy Mom Quilts did this as a quilt along...you can find the directions on her blog side bar...Round and Round Quilt Along. I didn't have time to do it when she did the quilt along, but remembered it and knew it was going to be the second twin's quilt. Thank you so much AmandaJean!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone!

Short Story seems to be the quilt to make with Bliss; look forward to seeing yours.

I might have to copy you again...the big quilt is going to be amazing with Bliss. I'm also thinking about Fig Tree's Vanilla Cakes with Bliss...have to decide!

I want to see Bliss in person but I'm afraid I'll go into a fabric frenzy. Love the designer BOM. It's going to be a terrific quilt. Darlene has many many blog friends very happy.
