Lucky me. Don't be too jealous but I was sent a nice big stack of fabric (in two color ways) to play with from Andover Fabric designer Carol Van Zandt. You'll be able to get your hands on your own pretty soon when it's released but until then, take a peak at what I'm up to.
Another tool making a debut was the large apple core template I got from Missouri Star Quilt Co booth at Houston Market. Because I like scrappy, I made a few from a centered four-patch and then cut four more partials from the remaining edges.
I'm Going to Brown Bag It
I've got plans for this color way with a set of coordinating totes and bags. I think it'll be fabulous to mix them up and play with value. Don't you adore that black one on the far left - ohh.
One of the designs will likely be this guy who has become a permanent attachment since sewing it for QuiltCon. I've never spiral quilted but think it would look awesome around a fussy cut circle. Other ideas are an Origami drawstring bag and carrier for my big rulers - we'll see.
Amy - the Borrowed WIP
Back when Butler's "Love" came out, I helped my sister choose what fabrics to buy and consulted on the oder to place them etc.. my favorite part of the process that she dislikes. She sewed the entire top and Amy has sitting as a WIP waiting for her border. I've borrowed it with permission and am hoping to finish her up this weekend.
The trick will be NOT to get caught up in over designing the pieced back with this stack of fun choices. Kind of a tall order considering the other things I'm bringing but maybe the momentum will continue on if she doesn't get all the way done.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Let's Bee Social with Sew Fresh Quilts. Lots of eye candy out there - take a look and say hi to those hard sewing folks.
