When I saw scrap bags of Kaffe and Kaffe style fabrics for sale on Glorious Color I just had to buy them! I don't have a fabric collection of these type fabrics , wish I did sometimes! so its nice when I can purchase scrap bags like this. I was hoping for lots of bright fabrics and this time around there are mostly darker fabrics. Hopefully they will have more in the very near future.
I thought I could use them to whip up another donation quilt.
Oh so why was I on the Glorious Color website???? When I saw Taryn's post about her ordering the Stars and Sprigs quilt pattern I knew I had to finally order it as well.
I have loved this quilt from the first time I saw it. And the fact that it was inspired by an antique quilt I knew someday I would have to make it! I vowed not to buy it till I had one of her quilts finished I had the patterns for already. Oh well a year is long enough right? After seeing Janet's blocks and then her finished quilt top I knew I was getting closer to buying that pattern ! Now having a friend to challenge and a little friendly competition to making blocks each week I will be starting this quilt soon. The pattern arrived yesterday!
A new book I bought recently. oh my what wonderful quilt pictures in here, full page color pictures, just beautiful.
One that I am happy is now in my library. If you love antique quilts this is a book that you should consider buying.
The book is available thru the DAR museum shop
I have only 4 more rows to go for the donation quilt I am making, I am very happy with the way its coming out and not having any problems sewing at the machine. My foot is healing and I have been given the go ahead to sit and sew "legally" LOL
I learned how to use the other foot on the pedal! thanks for all your get well wishes...
stay tuned I feel a few sewing marathon sessions on my machine coming on!
