Fat Quarter Fun -- and Fat Quarter Foul-up

Wow, this is one of those days I'm glad we live close to the mountains -- all kinds of tornadoes and tornado warnings in far Eastern Colorado.  Pretty colors on the weather map mean bad news!

Today was Fat Quarter Fun at Ruth's Stitchery.  Yesterday I finished the FQF quilt from last time, "Hot Tamale."

The strip of fabric on the left is my "border audition"  The pattern doesn't call for a border, but the other folks in the class added one and I think it will finish off the quilt nicely.  First, a narrow border of Kona "Cerise," then a wider border of the olive/fuchsia/cerise print.  I blogged the details on this pattern yesterday

Today we made another Villa Rosa Designs pattern, "Lovers Lane."  I love these simple, quick quilts!

I didn't notice the mistake until I took the photo!  Oops!  This will have a narrow red border and a wider border of the navy patriotic print.  I will quilt this on Meggie, practicing my "loops and stars" quilting.

Tomorrow is Scrappy Sunday, I am planning to work on my Anna Lena's Block-a-Day pyramids.  Only 18 days until the first day of Summer!
