Fabric Tues

  So for  Father's Day I worked on a Father's Day apron at my local sewing machine shop that also hold classes.  At first I was not to enthused about making an apron. Then I thought about that my husband has wanted a grill for a long time now. So an apron was made to go along with his new grill.  

I did finish it, but it is in need f a cleaning from all the grilling on Sunday.  I saw someone that I knew in the store that day and she said that I was wrong for allowing him to grill himself on Fathers Day. I said I couldn't deprive him of playing with his new toy, right!  It turned out to be a really good day.

So above is the new fabric that I got in the mail from the Fat Quarter Shop.  This is the Bloggers Choice pick for June. Cara Wilson from Cara Quilts is the blogger that put this set together. I think that I am going to save it for when I get pregnant, hoping for a girl.

My grandmother has decided that she is done quilting so she passed to me a good bit of fabric. The pill on the table is only what I am planning to use soon.

Here is what I have started with just today. I am excited about the out come of this one.  This is new territory for me.  I took a peak at the tutorial on Spider Web from Quilt It. I glanced at it and figured, "oh, that's simple enough". A peak meaning I did not follow her instructions. We shall see. I am going to add this tutorial from Quilt it the coming tutorial section of the blog.

That's whats happening with me.
Leave a comment let me know what you think and whats going on with you.


  1. Love your idea about a guy apron to go with the grill! And that spider web - looking GOOD!

  2. Spider web looks great! Love that apron present for your husband...such a cute idea!!

  3. I think the apron rocks...and your hubby grilling on Father's Day is great! Sometimes that's the best gift for them too. Love your new fabric! The spider web is going to be gorgeous. That's on my 'to do' list which I hope to get to soon. I think it looks like a great way to use up all the scraps that are accumulating. :)

  4. From the hubby. Great post. Love you.

  5. LOVE the apron...definitely a great gift!! I have always wanted to make a spiderweb quilt, too. I think you're off to a good start :o)
