Excited! Blogger's Choice FQ Bundle

So proud to see my Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Bundle up at Fat Quarter Shop!!

 Bright and fun this bundle would go wonderfully with Zen (a light grey) or Lemon Moda Bella Solids. 
Perfect for a summer citrus fun quilt.
 My bundle is on it's way here and I think I'll have to come up with a free pattern to use it up! 
What kind of project would you like to see using these type colours?

There are 12 fat quarter prints and 3 solids, all from different lines and manufacturers.

An idea for scraps!

I had a bunch of small, less then 1" x 5" strips left over from a project and wanted to do something with them, I have more pincushions then I can shake a stick at, which will not stop me from collecting more but I wanted something else.

 I've become and even lighter sleeper in the last few months, which I wouldn't have thought possible. Any light is now bothering me. I'd made a fabric scarf that I wasn't wearing because it was too bulky for me so I'd been putting it over my eyes to sleep. This, of course, was a lazy solution.
After weeks of saying I would make myself a proper sleep mask I finally did!

Those scraps were perfect!

Now  I'm just wondering if I shouldn't have bound it? Or sewn it together like a pillow and turn it out?
I used some left over Moda Snuggles, so the back if beautifully soft and lovely feeling. A bit of an elastic cord and all done!

May have to make another one to figure it out but for now it works!
