I just wanted to mention one of my favorite websites to buy quilting fabric from. It is connectingthreads.com. Their prices are great and the fabrics are just wonderful. I have bought quite a bit of fabric from there and just love how it looks and feels. They also have great kits at very reasonable prices.

I recently participated in a Table Runner/Table Topper swap with the Quilted Table Yahoo group. It was quick and a lot of fun. To the left is a photo of the lovely Table Runner that I received from my swap partner.
To the right is a photo of the Table Topper that I sent in return. I used 1930's reproduction fabrics and really liked how it turned out.

Well I did do some cutting and sewing for the Friday night Sew-In, but never took photos. I did cut the fabric for the whole quilt and was able to complete 42 of the 78 half square triangles needed. After the HST's the rest of the sewing will go pretty fast I think. I will try to post photos tomorrow after work.

I have been doing laundry and cleaning house today so that I can sew guilt free this evening. I am going to work on a baby quilt. I bought this fabric to make a baby quilt when my sister-in-law was pregnant a few years ago but never even cut into the fabric. The pattern is from Debbie Mumm's Quick Country Quilting book and it will have 6 rabbits on it. Blue, yellow, and green will be the fabric colors. I am hoping to do all of the cutting and as much of the sewing as possible. Tomorrow I will post photos of my progress. Unfortunately I still do not have a good digital camera so I will have to use the one on my phone.
