|Isn't it amazing, all of the variety you can get from half square triangles?!|
But until then, today is Thursday and that means another block for the Beginner's Quilt-Along. For the fifth one, I used some brown LouLouThi by Anna Maria Horner and the yellow is Flying Stripe by Ellen Luckett Baker for Moda; they were both in a remnant pack I purchased with my commission for the tutorial at Sew,Mama,Sew! My thinking is, I'm too new of a sewista to have built up enough scraps of my own but my sewing table is steadily being encroached upon by new fabric piles. Again, there's another little machine-applique on this block because I just can't let one of these go without the horse treatment.
My town is full of occasional sales stores. These are thrift/antique shops that only open for one weekend a month (it starts today.) Most of them are elaborately themed and fun to paw through as the merchandise has been hand-picked and staged like a Better Homes and Gardens photo shoot. I'm about to walk out the door and explore a few of them but first, I'll leave you with a recent garage-sale treasure.
