break out the fabric!

I have decided to start quilting again... finally. A few years ago, I was a quilting maniac. I sewed all the time and loved it. But I have let myself get distracted by other things and really needed the right project to push me back into quilting, so here it is!!
Crystal from Little Bit Funky made an amazing quilt recently and has since decided to give all of us sewing bloggers a chance to follow along with her and make one of our own! Each week, she will be giving directions to completing the quilt and I can't wait! Above are the fabrics I decided on... and I am super proud of myself with this one. Since I decided last minute to participate in this, I didn't allow myself enough time to order some cute new fabric. So this quilt is made solely on what I had sitting in my fabric stash!! Zero dollars will be spent on new fabric, so this is really cleaning out my fabric storage, plus I will be making a great patchwork-feel quilt!!! :)

Here is my work station, complete with cute Amy Butler fabric, my quilting tools, and my netbook, conveniently located to follow along with the directions, yay!! :)

ALL my pieces are cut out and ready for week two! How easy was that?! Thanks Crystal, for getting me back into quilting again! :)
And PS.
I still had extra fabric left over, so I listed a fun grab bag fabric bundle in my Etsy shop for anyone who is interested!! Such cute fabrics for anyone with the sewing bug!!
Happy Thursday to you all...
I am off to enjoy the day and then get ready for Andrew's Back to School Night this evening! :) I am still in shock that I have a school-aged child, eek!! xo!

It's going to be fabulous! I love that she's offering a tutorial! I need to get much better before I could tackle that kind of project!! And my "antique" machine needs some TLC :)
