Coffee and Cream

I hosted a swap on Backporch Friends this month. It was a small group of ladies that participated but the swap was a success. These are the pretty Bear Paw Variation blocks that I swapped out. Aren't they yummy?

Have you been to a quilt shop lately? Well, for some reason, I haven't been shopping in a while. I guess if you read some of my prior posts, you know things have been a little crazy. Well, I headed over to my local fav shop, Cozy Cottage and picked up some goodies. I want to make a few more bear paw blocks to get a 4 x 5 setting so I picked up these two fabrics. And I saw this great pattern for a chubby charmer! They had a sample in the store and it's such a nice big bag, I guess I'll have to make me one......someday!

The beige fabric is a Thimbleberries but I don't remember who makes the brown fabric. But it has little cherries on it. Who could resist that!??
I guess I better go through my charms and see if I can come up with enough to make that bag. I don't think the charms will be the problem. I don't know if I have enough fusible fleece. Well, I better get. The girls are coming over for sewing night. I gotta clean off a space for somebody else to play. (I kind of hog my space that way!) :o)

Admitting you a space hog is the first step...I'm very proud of you! LOL.

Can't wait to get my coffee and cream blocks Liz!! They look awesome! Hey, that brown fabric is ALSO a thimbleberries fabric. It's from the 2008 club also comes in a pink-ish color. Is that a picture of your daughter in the comment above? She's gorgeous!! :)

I'm soooo jealous, but then I knew I would since I didn't participate...oh well, next time!

I recognize that brown but I can't remember the designer. It kind of looks like a Thimbleberries too...

I love the chubby bag pattern...Good luck making it.
