Progress Report from Moda Lissa

There were times in my life that I hated the term progress report. You know, there was always that one class that was problematic or maybe I was problematic as the student.

I can’t think of any better term for holding myself accountable and logging my progress than “progress report” to keep me on track.

The cool thing is that I get to give myself my own grade.

This week I received a B-.

I  have finished a few projects, started a few new ones and completely ignored others.

More blocks for my red and white quilt.

Friday Fabric FInd #1 ~ Flea Market Mix from Life in the Scrapatch

Welcome to my first Friday Fabric Find post!

Today's find is Flea Market Mix.

I love it! 

I have been picking up pieces and pre-cuts here and there online,

These quilters all brought in quilts with soft and bright pastel colors in their fabrics. Some of the quilts are simple and some are intricate and complex. But all are sweet in pinks, sky blues, yellows and greens. I think these are loads of fun.
