Dancing in the Neighborhood


This was a fun pattern to make!

It quickly went from cutting table to blocks...
and from blocks... 

to this!
The pattern is one that has been on my list (along with Spin Cycle) both are

I love this fabric!
Here is a photo of the fabric collection that was displayed at Market.
Who is it? It's  Melissa Ybarra aka Iza Pearl... this designer was new to me.

I was able to make a shop sample for the Intrepid Thread... (happy dance)
and this is what 
Julie picked for me to make up! (still dancing)
 It was a happy surprise! 
The quilt is at the quilters right now, so I will have 
one more photo to
share before I mail it away to Julie. 
She will be making up kits for this project. 
The kit will be from this 
collection with a few solids mixed in... 
and the solids play so well with the prints!
I am usually intimidated by picking solids to put in my quilts...
with the exception
 of background fabric... 
and that is a safe white in most cases.
Julie can pick them for me for now on!

You are familiar with the Intrepid Thread aren't you?
The cutest fabric groups for sure-- you need to check out her store!!!

Your house quilt is adorable. It's been on my list for awhile too - you may have just inspired me to get started.
