Needle and Thread Thursday, and a Dash of Luck!

Welcome to Thursday again!  Well, my scrappy improv quilt, Serendipity, is finished, so it's time to move on to something new!  I'm excited to share my latest project with you.  This, my friends is a pile of pieces of Happy Go Lucky fabric, all ready to sew into HST's, and strips for churn dash blocks- hence the "Dash of Luck" post title.  Cheesy I know, but that's how I roll.  ;)

 Don't you just love looking at a sharply cut stack of fabric?  I know I do!



I have a date with my sewing machine this evening to start making some progress on these!  Now, take a look at some of the fabulous projects that caught my eye last week!

Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts shared this simple, but pretty quilt.  Quick and pretty is right up my alley!


Susan at The Bored Zombie shared this really cool two-sided quilt!  Even the binding is two sided- you should hop over and take a look.


and Jess at Quilty Habit shared this stunning Dresden Rainbow quilt.  The story Jess shared with this quilt is wonderful, and her post is full of close-ups of each Dresden.


I am truly inspired by you each and every week and look forward to seeing what you're up to, so without further ado- let's party!

Just play nice, y'all!  :)

  12. that is quite a stack! have a fun date with it. =) I love the name, btw. you'd better use it for the quilt, not just the post.

    I thought at first Susan's double sided quilt was that stack all finished and figured you'd done it super speedy again!
