Just a little lime and some light fabric shopping

A lime colored block for my Bottled Rainbows quilt.

Lime Block

I still haven't committed to a quilting style for my Kona solids quilt, but I do have a plan in mind for the goodie bag swap! I got my partner's info on Thursday, and found a pattern that I'm going to modify and I think I also decided on my fabrics. This is going to be a lot of fun, but I probably won't blog about it too much, since it's supposed to be a secret swap (nobody knows their partner's info)!

Like everyone else, I also hit JoAnn to search for the new Denyse Schmidt line. I found two prints at my local store and bought 1.5 yards each with a coupon (one 40%, one 50%), so I figured that the cost per fat quarter after tax was $1.47. Not bad at all!

Denyse Schmidt half-yard cuts

I'll stock up on some other prints when I get to the bigger JoAnn store again (they didn't have it out when I stopped by the first time), but this will do for now. Here's the Flickr group for the prints if anyone is in search of them.

How was your weekend?
