New and in the News



I got this kit of Star Crossed with Strawberry Fields Revisited
fabrics last month. 
It is so so very sweet.
I drooled over it long enough... I decided over the weekend to 
cut into it and get a new quilt started!


News flash...

Medium Dottie Fat Quarter BundleCurated by Fat Quarter Shop

Before I go any further... (you have waited long enough)!
I need to announce the winner of the Polka Dot Leap Day giveaway!
Fat Quarter Shop generously donated the fabric...


and the winner was number 57... Vicki H.

Congratulations to you Vicki!

And thank you for playing... I enjoyed reading who your favorite's are!
I was surprised by some... some designers had fallen off my radar...
so it was a good reminder to check in on them!


I unburied this quilt top a couple weeks ago...
(speaking of things that have fallen off my radar)!
I  had used one of my all time favorite 
Minick and Simpson lines...
it was called Charlevoix...
it has a very sweet yellow assortment in the line as well.



So, when I found this plastic shoe box filled with half square
triangles... over 500 of them... all trimmed and ready to go...
I was one happy camper!

So... my wheels started turning and I thought of this sweet project...
by Lori Holt.

Bee In My Bonnet: My Farm Girl Vintage Book - YaY !!! ...:

(photo borrowed from Pinterest- I believe it was a photo shoot for the book)

Those HST's are ready to be made into pinwheels and all I need to do is add the 
tractor! 




I also made the first two blocks in the
Moda Spendid Sampler...
and as cute as they are...


I am wondering if I fully understood...
another newsflash...

there are going to be 100 blocks????

Argggg... just Splendid!

I have Lori Holt's book and love it. Chock full of good things! and she made extra patterns to go with it. I got the Pig. I already made a Pink/Purple tractor (girly) and Green/Yellow tractor for two quilt tops. I am still slaving away at the HST's. I have them all sewn but I have to trim them and sew them into the pinwheels. I'm taking a break from them for now.

Love all your fabric photos! Have fun with your already trimmed HSTs (yeah for that!) and your Fig Tree fabrics:-)
