WHAT DOES THIS PICTURE REPRESENT TO YOU?

The deed is done.....finishto.....completo.....



Friday afternoon.....house was all cleaned.....finished the bindings on the quilts........was waiting for Husband to come home.
....
...........
.......................
................
Waiting...... He said he would be home in 30 minutes....
.............
............
.............
..............
Waiting.....
................
..............
.........
Couldn't take it....pulled out the iron, cutting board, rotary cutter.....ironing board, starch...material..... and started making rick rack with my Quick Points ruler so much for my clean home...
...
....
...
It also makes pairie points ....and if you click on the above Quick Points ruler, you can watch a video of how it works. I got mine at I Have a Notion. No....I do not own stock in her store.....I just love to shop there.

What am I making them for? That is to be decided at a later date...but for now...my Mr. Pfaff has stopped sewing these 2 1/1 squares and half square triangles..... I was hoping to get my dies in because I am wanting to do something with this quilt.....but that will be a mystery for a while if they don't come in soon.
Measures 64"x62"

By the way, my husband was in my sewing room today....commenting on how it has thinned out. I told him my mess is usually bad when I have alot of projects but I have been completing alot lately so therefore a cleaner room.
.....
...
Then he says get this.....I think before we leave you should go out and buy you a couple hundred dollars worth of Samoan fabrics.......(what did he just say).....could you repeat that for me......as I am grabbing my money and heading out the door...(only kidding but wait until Monday rolls around....you will hear the squeal of my tires, smell the burning rubber as I speed down the hill to make good on his words).... anyone want to come?
Now is he a keeper or what?

Gotta love those hubbies that help feed our fabric addictions. When Ken goes with me to buy fabric I end up with more than I had planned on in the first place. He always seems to find something that I missed or something that goes great with another fabric. We are truely blessed to be married to guys that understand....lol

YAY!!! Great idea your hubby had...and it does make perfect sense. Love your many wonderful squares and HST's and your newly-made rick-rack, too! I'll be anxious to see how you use it.

Terry said...

Your husband really said that?? Holy cow...he's a keeper is right!! Does he have a brother? Oh never mind...I'm already married! LOL

Gene Black said...

DANG! Girl that is one fine man to tell you "go spend money on fabric" -- he is a keeper!

Fiesta said...

Great quilt you have there Barb. I love scrappy quilts. I also love the blue binding from your turtle quilt. It has such a great color way.
What will you make with your Samoan fabrics?

Rick Rac cutter? I didn't know that existed, so cool!
That has to be in the top 5 best things to hear from a husband.

wackywoman said...

Oh good for you. I hope you find lots of wonderful fabric to buy. When are you returning to the states?

quiltmom said...

Happy shopping Barb- Hope you have a terrific time. Your quilt looks great. It must be really satisfying to have got so much accomplished.

QuiltSue said...

Yes please, I'd like to come too. Perhaps you should hire a bus rather than try and fit everyone in your car. So, when are we going?

Greg said...

There are VERY FEW guys who tell their wives to go out and buy fabric. Maybe you could teach him to quilt, that way you two can share in the joy of the fabric hunt!!! If I was in your neighborhood I'd join you on your shopping trip. We'll be here waiting to see pictures of what you buy.

good hubby, very good hubby ( he must have gone to school with mine!)I love whatever this small scrappy quilt is (or going to be) so pleasing to the eye. I swear when I throw fabrics together for a scrap- they look "icky"- I love the golden punch in this one! Sandy
