She's at it Again!


A friend dropped by today and we sat in the studio for a bit and she saw these on my cutting table. Her comment, "you're at it again, aren't you? Do you have a plan?"
I could actually say, yes I do. I'm looking forward to sharing it with you...definitely different than my last effort with selvages. I'm hoping I can make it work like I'm envisioning it.

Several of you emailed and asked about the fabrics in the 'sophisticated baby quilt.' The fabrics are not from one line, they're a hodgepodge of my purple fabrics. I know the solid brown is an organic cotton from Cloud 9 fabrics, the purple flowered print is an Amy Butler, i can't remember the brown flowers, and the lilac print is Bohemian Manor by Jason Yenter for In the Beginning fabrics. (got that on a clearance table at my LQS.) I'm not sure of the purple dot either. Hope that helps a bit.

I love the lines of these blocks!!!!! The selvages are awesome, I don't know how you do it all of my selvages are so small.

Looks great, I look forward to seeing what you create this time! I'm in the process of finishing up the top of my own crazy lady quilt - kingsize, handpieced hexagons - and it's great to see other crazy people too :)

Looks like it's going to be something fun...I can just feel it!

Looks like fun! it's a wonder you can remember any of the fabric names at all, since you probably cut off the selvages as soon as you start cutting for a project! :D

They look great!

And those brown flowers are Summer in the City (she says, swooning).

MightyMom said...

Your selvedges indicate some interesting fabrics in your stash - your work always looks so fresh. Have fun with your new project!

Those brown flowers are "Summer in the City" -- I wish I'd known you had some when I came up two charm squares short for my top a while back! :)
