Fishies and Backlog

Love these little fishies!

My girls are teenagers so I don't normally do much with this type of fabric, but, in the spring I went to a yard sale where I found almost 3 yards of this in a bag with some assorted other fabric scraps for $3.

The bottom 4 are the yard sale finds, and I found some assorted others that went along from my stash.

I decided to make a disappearing 9 patch, a pattern I see a lot, but have never done. Cluck Cluck Sew has several great examples that inspired me to try the pattern.

Meanwhile my stack is growing of tops and backings that are ready for quilting. I got all the stitches picked out of the authentic brick (that's that name today... I keep changing it) so it is ready, again. I also completed both the RWB brick road and the double hour glass. I am super excited to get both done to show you.
The Bernina hosts both the walking foot and the free motion capabilities, so everyone is waiting for her return. And yes... I seem to be big on Rick Rack these days :)
