August FNSI :)

Last night was the Friday Night Sew In again.
How did August go flying past me?

I spent the evening making the 25 blocks
 for my new bedroom quilt.
Today I spent a few hours piecing the first part
of the quilt top.
I still need to decide how I want the borders to look.
There will be red in the borders of course :)
I love love love this fabric.
It's soooo much prettier in person.
We have a black wrought iron bed frame so I wanted
fabric with red, blue, yellow and black. 
It's not easy to find so when I stumbled across
"Shades of Blue" by Moda I knew I had to have it.
I bought the only remaining layer cake, jelly roll and charm pack
that I could find and a bit of yardage.
I added the red from the "Ruby" fabric collection.
I have to say, I'm likin it so far :)
