Here are the finalists! It felt so good to finally do something creative just for me. Thanks again to all the great shops along the route. It was an interesting process of picking fabrics a few at a time hoping in the end something from each place would work. Not pictured: Arkansas, will be the label; Savannah, will be the binding. @measurefabric @fabrikafinefabrics #savannahga @cinnamonsquilts #jacksonvillefl @themodernquilterfl #sarasotafl @blocktherapyquiltshop #biloximi @chateausewnola #neworleansla #cathysquiltinsquare #hotspringsar #quiltcottageco #haysks @theconfidentstitch #missoulamt #korisfabriccreations #bellinghamwa @quiltaposy #cabinquilt

After months of hiding, my sewjo is back - or at least it feels like it today. I’ve had these lovely road trip fabrics on my cutting table for the past week, and today is the day to make the final(ish) selections. I’m going to use the lap size #cabinquilt pattern by  @quiltaposy, which means I need to narrow down to 10 of these beauties while still keeping at least one from each of the shops along the way. Wish me luck! @fabrikafinefabrics #savannahga @cinnamonsquilts #jacksonvillefl @themodernquilterfl #sarasotafl @blocktherapyquiltshop #biloximi @chateausewnola #neworleansla #cathysquiltinsquare #hotspringsar #quiltcottageco #haysks @theconfidentstitch #missoulamt #korisfabriccreations #bellinghamwa @fabricdepot #portlandor (we didn’t have time to stop but I’m coming back to you for the backing)

My panel quilt is back from the quilter. Lynda did a great job! Now on to the binding. This one will get a lot of love in my first grade classroom. 😍😍😍 #houseonthehill #quiltingtreasures #ilovefirstgrade #makersgonnamake #quiltersofinstagram #whenyouonlysewtwoseamsdoesitcountasaquilt

So, @_in_stitches, the internet lied to me. I know that’s hard to believe, but it’s true. There are three post office locations near me. The internet said one was open until 4:00 on Saturday. Nope. Not true. Closed at 2:00. ☹️ Your package will go out Monday. Thank you for the loan of this fascinating book. As the great-great-granddaughter of an Norwegian immigrant, I am appalled that a teacher was able to change the spelling of my family surname because Vikse wasn’t the “American spelling.” As an educator I was horrified at the treatment of the Native Americans in the English schools. We as a nation are slow to change. Hopefully books like this can, at the very least, open people’s eyes to the importance of valuing culture. I am in love with the mini-quilt kit you sent and am looking forward to making it in time to hang up this fall. #betweentheearthandsky #amandaskenandore #quiltyfriendsarethebest

Slow stitching in the sun this morning. It’s been ages since I’ve embroidered anything. I’d forgotten how relaxing it is to just sit and stitch. #slowstitching #quietmorning

Big news. I got a job!!! I’ll be teaching first grade at Blaine Primary. So when I saw this panel, I knew I needed it for my classroom quiet corner. Sewjo restored. First project ready for the quilter. I’d probably attempt quilting this one on my own, but frankly I don’t have time right now. My summer just got shorter. Besides it gives me a chance to check out local longarm quilters. #whatarelief #nomorejobhunting #sewjorestored #perfectclassroomquilt #ilovefirstgrade #quiltingtreasures #houseonthehill

It’s time to get my sewjo back. The design wall is going up. A sewing friend is coming tomorrow for a couple of days. We are going to hit a few quilt shops and finish organizing my new sewing space. #missingmysewjo #goawayfunk #timeforsomesewingtherapy #quiltyfriendsarethebest

Anybody else captivated by their own washing machine? My #100days100blocks2017 quilt finished its moving duties and was finally thrown in for its well deserved first wash. Love the @tulapink Free Fall in action. Swipe for a few more shots. It’s amazing how easily distracted I am from figuring out where the odds and ends go in my new house. The best news - this post will forever be a reminder of when we finally got our laundry room in working order. #Shortversion #brandnewhouse #builderputincabinetthatwastoolarge #washeranddryerwouldnotfit #builderremovedsaidcabinet #replacedwithsmallerone #ascalledforonblueprint #olddryerstilltoobig #boughtnewdryer #32daysaftermovinginwehaveworkinglaundry #windhamfabrics #crimsontate #literaryfabric #modagrunge #freespiritfabrics #tulapinkfreefall
