Something New

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

You can always tell that my hubby is gone when I'm getting lots of quilting done. 

This is fabric for my newest project.  

It's going to be for a quilt for the store (that I'll get to keep after we sell out of all the fabric.  Which I think will be soon if this turns out to be as cute as I think it will be!)  I just can't get enough of this new line of fabric by Riley Blake!  It's called Sublime.  I love it!  And I think it will be just daring in the pattern I'm doing.  I'll let that be a surprise.  Just think bird and flowers and a favorite book I have.  Any guesses which pattern it is now?

I've said it before & I'll say it again, to me, this is lovliness! 

I love the whole process of quilting.  I love playing with color and pattern. I love cutting. I love piecing. I love binding.  Can't say I love the actual hand or machine quilting, because I don't usually do my own.  But I love it all.  Today was cutting day and it was so fun to see how this project is starting to take shape.  Tonight I might get some piecing done.  We'll see.  This is going to be a really fun pattern so I can't wait to get it put together!

Aren't my heart pins fun?  My cute Sister-N-Law, Brittany gave me those one day out of the goodness of her heart.  They make pinning such a cheery activity.  Thanks Britt.  I love them! 


  1. That is a really nice pile of yummy fabric!

    Cutting is my least favorite part of quilting. I'm glad you enjoy it! It must make the start of a quilt a lot of fun!

  2. It is all lovliness to me too Amber. I love every single thing you make! One thing I love about your blog is how you get people excited about quilting and creating things and I know you once mentioned to me that you were sad the art of quilting was kind of dying out. I think you are helping it grow! Thanks for all your nice comments about our going ons :) The kids and I will get into town late Dec.14th, Kurt will follow on the 20th. So lets get busy planning!

  3. Love these fabrics I am very excited to see the progress!

  4. It's really cute fabric. I can't say I love quilting like you. Maybe someday. I like putting a binding on...does that count? :) Anyway, thanks for the suggestion for the Christmas card. I totally used it and did one today.

  5. Those fabrics are beautiful! Harper will be moving in to that big girl bed in a year or so and when she does I want her to be sleeping under one of your quilts!

  6. We must both be online! That picture was taken by my sister at my brother's wedding. Totally not professional, but it works. Let me know if you need me to come take one of you guys! :)

  7. Oooh, I love that fabric! Can't wait to see what your making with it!

  8. Can't wait to see the finished product! What spunky fabric!
