"Back to School"...

This was my latest project! Boy was it a doozie!!! I took a day trip one day and went to the Temecula Quilt Co. She had this quilt hanging up and I absolutely fell in love with it. I then found out it was pictured on the front cover of Quilt Sampler, Fall/Winter 2009. Since it was older, there were no kits available. I LOVE to buy kits! I like the fact of NO leftovers and having no extra's of fabrics I didn't use. For my stash, I only have 1 drawer full and 1-2 boxes of little pieces like fat quarter size. ANYWAYS.... back to the story... I had to order on the fabrics on line. YUK! They were all Bonnie Blues, which I know I was safe without seeing first. So they all came in took it to the cabin, and worked, and worked, and WORKED on it.There are a million little pieces, especially in the tiny little hoses and the baskets. oh boy... It was killing me! She's finished now, and now onto the 5 other projects that I am behind because of this one taking sooo long.

P.S. I have a TON of fabrics left over! I have to figure something else to do with them now, so make that 6 projects I have to catch up on.
