I have fallen in love with the Anni Downs new book Some Kind of Wonderful. The patterns and projects in the book are just beautiful and right where I want to be right now. I have made one design and finished it.... Simply Gorgeous Shoes.
So with that said, I have been collecting a few fabrics and have joined the SAL of Some Kind of Wonderful. I know I am a bit behind the eight ball on this project - what's new - but I know I will catch up over the winter months as I am a bit of a home body. Chookyblue will have her whip out at me I am sure!! So watch the progress as I make each block. Here are some of the fabrics....
Aren't they delicious?
Here are a few of my backgrounds, have gatherered a few that I had in my stash, and have bought a few bigger pieces. I am waiting on one more piece, hopefully in the mailbox
I have always loved fabric. I just cant go past a fabric shop without looking inside. And the designers make it so hard these days with all the beautiful colours and patterns. I have decided I am more contemporary that traditional though in the things I like. And I am not all about quilts, I am always on the lookout for 'things' made with fabric. I will still stitch I know, but for this year it is about this quilt and Some Kind of Wonderful nd finishing off a few other projects. (I have spent a few hours sorting and cutting, and thanks to Clare for her help and advice too.)
Alison and Deb, yep, I know I will go this way at some stage, but for now I am enjoying both my stitching and the sewing. Wendy, no reason why you cannot join me in making your black and white quilt either.
Thanks for dropping by, till next time....
