New Quilt! (& not so exciting house report too)

It is so much fun to start a new quilt, isn't it? I decided I have worked hard enough on my house this week, so I can sew today! I cut the fabrics this morning for the Kaffe Fassett pattern, Diamonds Forever, taken from the June/July issue of Quilt magazine. I have been collecting some of his large floral prints as well as others for awhile now and when I saw that pattern I decided this is why!

I've been cutting all morning, so am taking a break, then will start sewing. Looks like it will be fun and easy to make.

I scrubbed the cupboards the other day & put the new handles on  yesterday, so they look much nicer.

My daughter came over Wednesday and helped me tear out the carpet in the sunroom. That is where I have all my "stuff", computer, tv and sewing machine. It looks so much nicer too. We had taken out the carpet in the living room and dining room a long time ago, as we have hardwood floors and I hate carpet. Just never had gotten around to the sunroom. After cleaning it well, and applying several layers of Orange Glo, it looks pretty good.
House report over.

I still think you should paint the cabinets!! But I know you did a lot this summer in your house. Maybe next year.

I like hardwood better too. I'm glad it was there for you to reveal. You can hear a pin or needle hit the floor now, with that little 'ping'. I should make that quilt too. After seeing Jackie's at Canton Village quiltworks I located my diamond template.

Yay, you are making this quilt too!! I don't know if you got a chance to see mine all finished, but I posted about it a few days ago. I just love this quilt!! I know yours will look fantastic. Can't wait to see your progress. The floor looks fabulous. I am with you, I prefer wood over carpet.
