Anyone who is obsessed with fabric understands that as soon as fabric arrives you're planning to cut it for the next quilt-even if you have five quilts on the go already. New fabric arrived this week in my PO box and I'm itching to start something new, but I think I'd better finish one of my WIP's first. ( I give that resolution about a week because I already have several quilty visions running through my head )
More Christmas Fabric to go with the layer cake that arrived last month. This is Robert Kaufman -Sparkly Christmas. It's just so funky and happy. Not sure how to do the layer cake and fat quarter pack justice in a Christmas quilt but I have an idea of what to do with those jelly roll bits.
I love fat quarter packs they always look so pretty all stacked up.
I went mad on Hallmark Evergreen Ornaments fat quarter bundles. I bought two. At this point I am seriously questioning whether I have a Christmas obsession. You should see my stack of Christmas fabric (it's hidden in the sewing studio away from Mr. P. I love calling my sewing studio a studio rather than a room. It just sounds so much more crafty and like I actually know what I'm doing in there)
And I bought matching stuff to do a backing and I even bought contrasting fabric for the binding . Wow! I was on fire the day I ordered this ..usually I worry about the backing later and then curse the fact I can't find anything that works. I'm looking for some Hushabye at the moment due to this disorganised approach to quilting and fabric purchasing.
And oh my goodness....
I'm completely kicking my own arse that I didn't buy three of these Rumba fat Quarter packs instead of one. I LOVE this fabric. I'm imagining this as simple squares with chocolate sashing. I really wish I knew how much I would love it when I saw it in person. How freaking cute are these birds?
I'm biting the bullet and joining in the Friday Night Sew In hosted by Handmade by Heidi next Friday night, July 23rd. Click on the picture in my sidebar if you want to play too. I've never done a sew in before. Should be fun!
And here is s snippet of what I've been up to in the sewing studio the last couple of weeks...yes that's a crafty mess. All will be revealed in a forthcoming post!
I am seriously glad it's Friday.
