These two bundles have been living underneath the plexiglas extension table for my sewing machine so they've been taunting me while I worked on other things that had deadlines. I picked up several of the purple fat quarters at Tuesday Morning (a domestics store, kind of like a mini Marshalls) and added a few more purples from my stash to make my own fabric medley. I won the blue and green fat quarters at our holiday swap in 2015. After I cut them out, I saw that they are Horizon by Kate Spain. Marion has used Kate Spain fabrics in several of her projects. We don't see them often at our local quilt stores.
|After taking this photo, I changed my mind, so I'm making the Weekender Tote with the purples, and the San Clemente bag with the blues and greens. I've made both of these patterns before. You can see my previous Weekender Tote here (you'll need to scroll down).|
|I write labels on sticky notes and attach them to each of my pattern pieces that I cut out from the different fabrics. This way, when I pick up my project again, I'll know what all the pieces are for.|
The third project is going to be a Yellow Brick Road quilt made out of cat fabrics for my cousin Joel's little girl. Angie will turn 5 in June so she needs a big girl quilt for her birthday. Below are a few of the cat fabrics that I cut for her quilt. I decided not to stress and used a wide variety of cartoon cats and realistic cat fabrics. I figured, the more, the better.
|An old friend once said that "all reds go together." It will be fun to see what they look like in Angie's quilt. And these fabrics are very happy to have left the depths of my sewing room closet!|
Pugs and kisses,
