I know it's late.....

...but it's better than never, right? Easter is not over BUT if you aren't a fast sewer -get projects done fast like me, then this will be too late for Easter. CHECK THIS OUT! This Fabric Easter basket I found while blog surfing. How cool are these!? Now that I come to think about it, my sisters and I had these same kind of baskets when we were growing up. I wish I had a picture of them to show you, but I don't have mine with me.

I'm not to familiar with different fabric companies, but I have really come to like Moda A LOT, and I do mean a lot. When I went home the other weekend to spend time with my family that I don't get to see that often, my mom, sister and I went shopping for fabric because my mom is going to make me a quilt. Of all the colors and patterns I really liked Moda. It's called Hello Betty -retro by Moda. Love it! Here are some examples that I found that can kind of give you an idea of what the Hello Betty line looks like.



This is the pattern that I picked out. I like it because it's something that I haven't seen much of. What do you think? I want to make time this summer to do stuff like this. Who's in with me!?
Check out Moda Fabrics blog. It's hard not to keep looking. Maybe i'll learn some patience if I start this new interest up. :)

I just wanted to let you know that the quilt is started! I have the fabric almost cut out and then I'm ready to sew. The fabric is really cute and can't wait to get it done!
