Something New


I can finally show you what I was doing with the Fox and Houndstooth fabrics.  This is a pattern I was testing for Bea Lee of BeaQuilter.  This is her latest release with Connecting Threads.  And if you hop over to her site you can register to win a copy of this pattern as well as see more of her tester's quilts.


I, also, need to thank Wendy Sheppard of Ivory Spring (a thank you card went out to the sponsor) for this gorgeous bundle of 'Katherine Ann'.  This is destined to be a quilt for my Catherine.  I've made the grandies several quilts, but never my daughter - well, I made her a very crude panel snuggy when she was little (not giving her age now).


This I have had this for a while.  I treated myself during a sale. Robert Kaufman's  'Rhoda Ruth' and matching bundled Kona Solids that I plan to use for the Farmer's Wife.  I have made all the blocks in the original book several times - and gifted them out in one form or another.  I have the new FW 30's book, too.  So once I have some commitments finished, I will be finally playing with this.  

I know, I am a scrap quilter - but there it's like a breath of fresh air when you get to play with something new.

 Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. What a beautiful bundle of fresh fabrics you have collected. I have been on a self imposed fabric famine for a couple of years now. I want to severely reduce my own stash. Now I am finding that all the lovely modern fabrics are so bright and cheerful, and they are appealing to me more than what I have in stash. I'm determined not to give in for a while yet though.

  17. You need new fabric every once in a while so you have new scraps to breathe life into your old scraps. At least that's what I tell myself...
