I am looking forward to my new project!
I wanted to make it since I saw a photo of it hanging in
Carrie's booth at Market... was that last fall?
Thelma made the cover quilt for the pattern.
I even bought April Showers so I could copy her...
but somehow I never got around to making
I had been doing a little chatting with Nicole at
Sister's Choice blog and she also had been
wanting to make Crop Circles.
She decided to use her sweet bundle of Gardenvale by Jen Kingwell.
I thought that group would be perfect for this quilt too!
However, I already had a designated project for Gardenvale.
I had pre-ordered a kit from Fat Quarter Shop...
In a moment of confusion I had ordered a second kit.
Which I had been kicking myself for... but then thought that
I could use the Gardenvale fabric from the second kit for Crop Circles.
But... that wasn't working either because the kit keeps missing it's
As it stands not... the fabric is readily available but those
kits are not coming until sometime later this month.
Sooo... in order to get going on this project and start our little
sew along... I had to make another fabric choice.
Oh, I bet you are thinking that I would just open up that April Showers
bundle and go back to my original plan... but that is not
what I did.
I spyed a sweet little bundle in my stash that looked like spring
to me with a little bit of nostalgia to it.
Petal Pushers by Lauren and Jessi Jung.
So that's what I am planning.
Would you like to sew along with Nicole
We would love to have you play along.
Nothing formal... just friendly.
you could even pick another Jen Kingwell pattern.
If you want to go with one of her
patterns FQS does have a great selection.
So, that's the idea for our sew along
... use Crop Circle pattern and Gardenvale fabric...
or your own choice of fabric..
Use a Jen Kingwell pattern...
and Gardenvale fabric or fabric of your choice.
I can't wait to see who is going to join in our sew along... and see
what fabric/pattern you choose!
Let us know if you plan on playing along!
I think it will be fun!
