Yippie Ki-Ay

I couldn’t resist – with (almost) a month of no new fabric purchases, I broke down – a local quilt shop was having their First Friday Frenzy fat quarter sale and I had to stop by. I’ve been itching to make a quilt for some time now so I decided that I would make something simple and small like a baby quilt. I literally spent an hour in the shop deciding (and changing my mind) on what fabrics and fat quarters to purchase. I finally found inspiration and went with a cowboy theme – I am really hoping that the ultrasound technician was right and this baby is a boy!
I also changed my mind on what pattern I was going to use last minute as well. While standing in checkout line, I decided to pick up the Fortune Cookie Quilt pattern designed by local quilt artists (and more) – Two Chicks Designs. I picked this one since it seems to show off the fabric designs better than my original idea the only problem – the size ranges for this one is lap and queen, so I’ll have to modify it a bit (bring on the math!).
So, without further ado, here’s my haul:

While I was there, I also picked up a few ‘extras’. You never know when you’ll need a fat quarter (or two) for some fun purpose! I have a few projects to finish up, but I’ll be starting the quilt soon. I’m thinking it will sew up fast – it sort of reminds me of the types of quilts you see in books like Laps From Fats: 11 Lap-Size Quilts to Make Using Fat Quarters. In the mean time, I’ve posted this project on the sidebar!

    What a lovely collection of fat quarters. The design you chose is so nice. Quilting is such a great art! I am sorry I missed the exposition that they had her in DE…Well it is hard to convince the boy to see quilts : )

    A woman can never have too many shoes…or fat quarters. I confess to having nine Rubbermaid drawers full. These are adorable and I love the idea of a cowboy quilt.
