Do you ever have a project that you are just so excited to start that you can hardly stand it?

I have one of those projects on the horizon!

Not that I don't still have plenty of other posts and photos to share of my past projects, but I have to share my excitement some where. I figure since this is my blog than it is okay to ramble a bit, right?

I am patiently (okay, not so patiently) waiting for a package in the mail from the Fat Quarter Shop. (Side note: totally not being paid to say this, but I LOVE shopping online at the Fat Quarter Shop! I'm a regular!) I'm making my first quilt from this book...

(The Modern Quilting Bee - block party)

You have seen this book before, right? If not, you are missing out! I am in love with the improv trend in quilting, it's kind of my thing right now. This book gives lots of great examples of 'improv' quilts with easy to follow directions to get the look your going for. There are 12 'patterns' to jump start your creativity. Awesome.

I'm making this quilt for my friend, in trade for her awesome photography skilz! I think what I am most excited about is the color pallet... Greys, blacks, creams, whites, and yellows. I think it's going to be divine!

Enough rambling...off to go clear off my sewing 'to-do' list and clean up my cutting table so that I can get to work as soon as the package arrives!
