This is one of those blog posts where I thought I didn’t have much to share and then realized that there was bunches of things…a little bit of everything.
I’ve continued to be stymied by the red star quilt I shared with you last time. I completely ripped it apart and put it back together like this.
I’m liking the balance of this better than the last idea, though I’m not as thrilled about how traditional it looks. I’m still trying to find my own wow factor in this quilt. The outer red border is not sewn yet, but that should help with a distinction for the next border. I think that is where I will find some happiness with this.
I do love how these stars just look great with Laurie Wisbrun’s brr fabrics. I’m making myself not hoard these and use them. I have the back all made for this quilt using a lovely combination of her fabrics from a couple lines.
I also have had some lovely new fabrics join my stash. I *may* have bought just a tiny bit for my birthday earlier this month…and I still have more coming. Shh… 😉
I ordered this lovely bundle of Anna Maria Horner’s Hand Drawn fabric line. I just give up not trying to buy her fabrics. She does saturated color like no one else. I need that in my stash because I don’t tend to naturally buy these types of colors.
A lovely bundle of Full Moon Lagoon by Mo Bodell was another one I couldn’t resist. I’ve been eyeing it for months and finally caved. So sweet.
Oh and probably my favorite…a print from Melody Miller. Gold dots. I never thought that I would love a fabric with gold dots but I seriously do. I’ve decided that this will be perfect for a Weekender Quilt as you Go project. So look for that in the near future. I really want to tackle that project!
Oh and then I’ve been sewing up some class samples for my Curves Mini class for Sewing Summit in September. Just some sneak peaks today but hopefully a full reveal soon! I kind of love them and really want to share them!
So I’ve definitely been sewing…it was just a fairly random week. In all ways actually, but good.
