Yesterday was very productive for one of my Mondays and also very tiring.

I did not do any sewing but I received some fabric that I was waiting on to start on my Lazarus Fundraiser quilt.  I was excited to see that it had arrived and when I opened it I loved. I do no think that the fabric is right for the cause.  Never the less, It has been paid for specifically for this cause so I am going to go with it and see what happens.

I decided to use the lattice pattern for this quilt and instead of using the aqua, I'll be using a gray for the background color. The aqua makes it look babyish to me. 

I found a table cloth that is 
vinyl on one side and  soft on the other.  It measured at 54"x 80" something I think that will work for my larger layer of my design wall.  It is great in length, but would still like at least 3 more inches on both side.  In the mean time, it will be simple just to adjust my quilt top for that when needed.
Also I have wanted some clips to hold my rolled quilt while quilting and I found some at Hobby Lobby they were $4.  The ones that Nicole from Mama Love Quilts suggested were cheaper. I just never ordered them for some strange reason. But I am glad to have them now for the next project. I also picked up some threaded bobbins.

Today I am almost finished with the Scrappy Comic Strip Quilt and tomorrow will be starting on the Lazarus Quilt.

I would love to here your opinion on the fabric choice for the Lazarus quilt.
