It isn’t often that I have some time to work on my own things. Since I have finished the Longwood Gardens quilt, I thought I deserved a break. I have two projects I am currently working on. Yes, you heard me right 2! Not sure which one has more of my attention as I am excited about both of them.
The first is a whole cloth I have been planning for a while. The fabric is an ivory sateen that I got from Christian Lane Quilters. It is yummy. I am using YLI silk thread. Here is a quick peek.
The next is the fabric challenge for HMQS. We were given a pack of fabric, black and whites from Riley Blake’s Tuxedo collection. We are only allowed to add 4 additional fabrics but can use anything in the Tuxedo Collection without penalty. Here is a peek at that. Way to much fun!!
Yep, the center is appliqué. The pattern is from a quilting design on Swan’s Journey. You might notice the similarities with the quilted pattern right above. Minus the feathers and crosshatching. The background is going to be gray, and I think I am going to add one really bright color to make everything pop! Stay tuned!
Also a quick note: My Quilter’s Groove Rulers will be at Road to California, in The Quilting Connections booth! Yeah! Stop by and tell Sue I sent you. 🙂
