Two days to go! Thankfully the packing is going quite well and my to-do list has many checked off items! I know I said I was going to post a finished quilt but I wanted to post about other stuff instead.

Yesterday and today I actually had a bit of time for sewing which was nice because it is a great mental break from trip preparation.
I finished the quilt top and backing and basted my do Good. Stitches quilt for April. I may not get it finished before I leave but at least it's almost there. I LOVE how it's looking so far, really nice work by the Heal Circle ladies!

I also got inspired and picked out fabrics for my next quilt! Like tons of other people, I have fallen in love with Lucy's Crab Shack fabric collection. I picked up two of the fabrics from my local quilt shop the other day but there is NO way I need any more fabric. So, I decided to pull similar colored fabrics from what I already have to get the same look and color palette. I can't wait to cut into this pile!

Lastly, I whipped up this little case for my Kindle. It's already packed away in my backpack ready to go!

I should be able to pop in here one more time tomorrow. I have to show you how huge my bags are!

Have an awesome trip! (I'm super impressed by the smoothness of your pin basted top.) It's going to be a fabulous quilt! Also, I think I share your love of Melody Miller. My ipad is demanding a new cover.
