I spent Sunday at Island Quilter teaching some gift classes. I started dreaming up new quilts with the happy colored fabrics that had come in since my last visit. All the pastels and the bright oranges were talking to me.
I didn’t even notice it until it was all washed and folded, but the cheerful Kaffe Fasset button fabric even has smiley faces on it:). How cute is that? I added in some of the Briar Rose by Heather Ross (they have the full line), a little Anna Maria Horner and some Lizzy House Pearl Bracelet. I’ll be stashing some more of the strawberries and adding the other Kaffe Fasset buttons when I have an excuse.
I’ve been dying to make a Sparkle Punch forever and my additional purchase of Essex in flax sealed the deal for the starts of that quilt. I figured while I was cutting I should just make a new Magic Number Quilt sample for my workshop Sunday. Stay tuned on that one, I plan on piecing my design tomorrow.
Freddy Moran’s quilts are up throughout the month of November. Freddy’s amazing. She believes red is a neutral. If you’ve only ever seen her quilts in books now’s your chance to see how fun and amazing they are.
We’ll be running an open studio Saturday, November 30th from 11am-9pm at Island Quilter if you need to step away from the leftovers and spend a day on sewing gifts. Follow the link to sign-up and I’ll say it again, “Step away from the turkey.”
