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!
