5 & Dime Friday

Tonight I was relaxing after I got the pillowcases done and couldn't decide whether to work on one of the 3 bags I have cut out or cut out a new quilt. I had picked up the 5 & Dime pattern when I was in MN as they had it made up in the fabrics below. We had just gotten the fabric in the shop and I didn't know what I would do with it, but I love it. I know it's not really my colors, but I fell in love with it when I saw it made up in this quilt. I layered my fat quarters and cut it out in less than 10 min. I should be able to get it pieced tomorrow night and get it quilted. I'd like to have it done by strip club next week. The four strips are my pieces and the brown floral is the main sashing.
I also picked up thread to quilt it with. The dark blue/teal is the back.
The other excitement of the day was getting my 19" monitor at work, which turned in to a new computer all around. The monitor used to be the size of my shelf below it, so you can see how huge this one is. I can have two windows open at a time.

Great fabrics! Every time you post new fabrics you've gotten, I think..."that's something I would pick"! Nice monitor, too! You feeling like the CEO, yet? Have a great weekend!
