Finally made it over to Vashon Island to sew at Island Quilter with some students last Sunday. There’s always so much new fabric to see with each visit and everyone enjoys the bright large sewing space.
I was delighted to see Violet Craft’s new line Waterfront Park in the colorways that I’m so drawn to lately. I would have loved to buy the full line, but I’ve been adding the crimsons and yellows to my stash for these mini Supernovas.
These have been a work in progress, put up and then away multiple times. At some point something will come that will transform them into a quilt, but nothing original has come yet. Might be time to just make more blocks with all this fabric?
Since I had already pieced this block and decided that I needed to rip it apart to add some extra points, I added in some of Violet’s new line. I used most of my Mendocino up in the original Supernova for the book and a triangle quilt I still need to show you all, so mixing in some new prints is essential.
Cute as going big I think.
I’m teaching a Stitch and Flip Triangle workshop to the Eastside Guild Thursday and these beauties, though unfinished will hopefully offer some variety for inspiration.
And if anyone has any of this swim sister in the plum (not crimson) I’d be delighted to trade for just about anything.
Happy Monday! Go sew.
