Little Boo

Yesterday I was doing my usual shopping at WalMart and I spotted the new Quilt Sampler.
I had seen on other blogs that it was available but with kids, work and all that I hadn't been out to get it.
I flipped through it at the store and immediately fell in love with Little Boo by Pine Needle Designs.

Have you seen it? Here it is.
Once I was home I started to rummage through my Halloween fabrics and I realized that the bundle of Riley Blake fabrics that I picked up at market were the exact fabrics used in the project.
So I nearly immediately started pressing the fat quarters and cutting for the project. I am adding in a few of my own stash fabrics to make it unique. 
Here's my progress so far. Nearly all the strips are cut for the blocks. I have cut squares for the pinwheels too!
I can't wait to start sewing and stitching this gem.
Unfortunately, or not, we are going to Waynesville today. Guess what's in Waynesville...
Fabric Shack!
yeah baby...I am going to the Fabric Shack...10,000 bolts of I come.
I am hoping to find a border for Little Boo while I am there and a few other odds and ends that I need to finish a project or 2.
We are also going to be visiting with 30 or so friends of ours from not totally a fabric trip.
What are your plans for Labor day weekend? Besides our shortish trip today..I just plan to sew and play with my girls. Should be a good weekend.
p.s. don't forget to enter the giveaway for the 1930's applecores!

Fabric Shack is such an awesome place! They saved me this week having something I needed and shipping it super quick for me! Wish I could actually go there one day.

I love shopping with them too, lots of great bargains and fast shipping. I haven't see the new issue yet, our stores are slow to get them in.

Hi Vickie! I have the magazine but haven't had much of a chance to go through it. "Little Boo" is adorable and you've already got so many neat fabrics for it. Have fun at Fabric Shack...sure wish it was near me....just what I need.....even more fabrics. But, I do love them!

Take care!
