Made time for a quick raid on one of my local quilting shops. They're having 25% off pre-cut packs for the month of February, so I've been back twice so far to get some supplies for this years projects.
I picked up 2 charm packs for my uncle's lap rug. It took a while, but I settled on Road 15 as it's more masculine, without being too childish - I don't think a man heading towards 80 really needs animals, trucks or tractors - plus there are some good colours here that I can expand on for the backing. I'm leaning towards the grey and blue/green. Thankfully, they also have bolts of the same range so I can buy by the metre. Makes it so much easier that way.
Then I headed over to the more girly packs and chose Bluebird for a medium sized (5'x5' or bigger) lap rug for the couch for me. I seem to be doing projects for everyone else, and I've yet to even keep something I've quilted for me! So this is just for me! I just couldn't resist once I saw the bunny print as I used to own a rabbit ;-D
