Please send me your snail mail address so I can mail you the book.
Many of you may remember that Janet O. and I did a little challenge last year ostensibly to use up my French General fabrics. I sent her a pile of my extra fabrics with which she made me the most darling little 12" quilt. That was the only restriction.
It is fabulous... the design is so perfect (stars are my favorite blocks) and her feathers (she's quite the master quilter, if you don't already know) are amazing. She also is the Queen of Minis! I love it. Do you see the fussy cut corners?? And the centers of the stars??
So this year she chose the fabrics and we are following the same general guidelines...12" quilt. Here is what I have left:
The jelly roll was a Barbara Brackman line. I added other fabrics to make my project, which will be within the 12" guideline, with a little variation...
I'm going to finish it up after we return from our cabin in Oregon (we are going up tomorrow with my daughter and her 3 darlings, so I won't get any sewing done...small price to pay to have the kids for the week!!). I'll post a picture after I send it to Janet.
One of the places we visited in Nashville was a botanical garden. The flowers were not all in bloom but these little pansies had the best colors. I had to take a close up. Wouldn't a quilt with these colors be so striking??
I did a little sewing this week, trying to catch up with the Triangle Gatherings. I got 3 done...
These fabrics were my favorite of the three, although it's a little hard on the eyes!!
I'm now trying to put together a little hand work for the drive tomorrow. I really enjoyed the wool appliqué (no edges to turn) so I am leaning in that direction. I think I have a kit or two of pin cushions that are wool.
Hope everyone has a great Easter!
