What I did today

I'm taking another Mystery Quilt class on New Year's Day. This is my quilt top. I LOVE IT! Hot pink, lime greens, and turquoise. Mike's not a fan, but that's probably because it's so girly. haha.
I'm also making a quilt out of Amy Butler's Love. My pile of scraps was so pretty I just had to take a picture.

And these are the fabrics I'm using. I'm doing Turning Twenty, so I bought 6 half yards to make a throw/twin size quilt. I still need to buy my border and backing fabrics, but Gracie Lou's is out of the fabric I wanted to use, so I'm going to have to find it elsewhere :( I'm hoping to get the quilt sewn together tomorrow. I cut out all the pieces, so I just need to sew it all together. Then when I get my border and back I can bust that baby out and have me a nice new quilt...that's pretty, too! :)
Also, I found this really great counted cross stitch pattern book: Paula Vaughan's Quilts for all Seasons. It is a quilt a month in cross stitch. I got it at Joann's. I haven't cross stitched for FOREVER, but I couldn't pass up the chance to have a different cross stitched quilt for each month! So, I've got a goal to do 1 a month. This month I'm working on January's. I don't know if I'll have it done in time. Here's to hoping! {fingers crossed}

I'm doing the Mystery Quilt also, but I won't start quilting today. I have a class sample to finish first!!
