Serendipity

On Tuesday I decided I needed to finish this second installment of my designer mystery BOM series.  It turned out quite nicely, hmm?? 

Now, I bought this FQ pack when I went to Paducah last spring.  It is the Fresh Squeezed line.  Aren't the colors yummy??  But I just didn't know what I wanted to make with them.  I have been looking for the *perfect* pattern. 
So I stopped at JAF on my way home to look for a copy of Australian Patchwork magazine that I have been trying to find.  I saw a Fons and Porter magazine that I did not have and began to thumb through it.  Don't like it, don't need it, Not my thing, maybe, but probably not necessary
...wait a minute, could it be??...it is!!  The perfect pattern for the Fresh Squeezed fat quarter pack!  And here it is!
I had quilting with the CL's last night and had to decide what to bring with me.  I decided to take the FQ's and this patten and see if I could get it cut out.  Well, I got all the strips cut and now I just need to sub-cut and I will be ready to sew.  I was supposed to have a meeting tonight but it canceled so maybe I can do the sub cutting in the daylight when I get home!  YEA!!

I have a wedding reception to go to and have to get a dress.  I am trying to figure out how to show you the photo of the one I ordered.  If I can get it I will post it.


Found it!

Can't wait to see your "Fresh Squeezed" quilt. It will definitely be a cheery quilt for those gray Mich. winters.
