Charming Girls Tag answers

As part of the Charming Girls Quilt Club we are given certain tasks to do each month to get entry points for the monthly prize. Kelly posted a meme for us to answer on our blog and it's my turn to give it a go and did my part

First up is 5 things about ourselves..

1. My Favorite Fabric is:
Not an easy answer since I like so many things. I'm going to have to choose the packet that arrived today called Crimson and Clover by Jo Morton for Andover. Lovely CW prints in yummy reds, cheddar and greens.

2. The pattern I'm most looking forward to sewing is:
Finishing up this Kaffe Fassett Scrap quilt that I found on a German blog last year. Here's my friend Christiane's "Scraparadise" version and here's mine so far.

3. The food that is my weakness:
That's super easy.... ice cream! I eat a small bowl every day and it keeps me happy and not trolling the pantry for anything else!

4. If I knew I couldn't fail, I'd:
I'd buy a house and live on high on a mountain top in some lovely four season state with hubby who stayed home too and raise chickens and veggies, and animals and live totally on the land with no interference from anyone...except the UPS man.

5. The best "life" Advice I know is:
Don't worry about what anyone else thinks! Eliminate any negative influences from your life and do what you want, what pleases you and makes you happy. As long as you aren't hurting others it's all good.

Now for progress, I finished my 9 patch top and will post pictures tomorrow!! 2 tops done and now loads of pinning!

You have the same UFO as me but mine is hidden under a flannel sheet on the design wall. I've done all the blocks but I'm stalling on the putting together. I'd almost forgotton it.

OMG -- that quilt is going to be GORGEOUS! I love the scrappy look and the fabric. Ice cream is a weakness for me, too -- especially if it has chocolate! Great advice for all of us, too! Thanks so much for sharing!
