So close...then POP...POP...POP!!!!!

DANG IT!!!!!  I was so close to having something to share!!!!  Something I was excited about and was in LOVE with and then I hear...POP! POP! POP!  and my iron DIED!!!  Without warning ( I suppose the pops could be considered a warning) with consideration so my project has to wait a bit longer.  Stupid iron!

I was gobsmacked last week by these beautiful Dear Stella Fabrics that were sent to me last week!  Thank you Dear Stella!!!!!   This stack SPOKE to me!!! It is the line It's a Shore Thing.  The fabric is so soft and the colors are PERFECT!!!! Perfect for a string quilt!!!!  I looked at tutorials and found this one on p.s. i quilt.   I think it will be perfect for another 100 Quilts for Kids project.



This is how far I was able to get before the possessed iron died...

So, off I go to drag the kids iron shopping, this is going to be FUN!!!!!

The project looks lovely so far. I had to replace my iron this year as well, when it spewed black water on my white fabric one too many times. Boo.

Enjoy your trip this weekend. Let me know when you're back so we can come and play and retreive the long lost Naked Baby.

Let me know about the iron, I have been talking to everyone, they hate their irons..

Hope those kiddos behave for ya Kim:) I have been having trouble with the plug on mine or rather the stupid child lock/block thingies they put inside the wall outlets in my house. Every time I try to plug something in like my iron it tries to mangle it and then I have to bend the prongs back....annoying for sure.

Anyway pick a good iron;)

Hi Kim1 That looks so beautiful fabric bundle and I like the pattern you are making!
I hope you found good iron! My iron died two weeks ago, that was bad, because I really liked it. But it has worked well unbelievable many years. I found new Rowenta but it's not the same. x Teje

I dont have good luck with irons. Expensive or otherwise. Good luck!

I had to buy s nee iron this past year. I think the only thing more traumatic is when a sewing machine dies on you.

Good Luck with the Iron shopping. There are so many now....it will be a difficult decision? Or maybe not :) if you already have a fav.
