It’s ALWAYS fun to get new fabric, right?
It’s especially fun when I already have designs in mind to make with it.
Rest assured there will be Dresden petals involved; Tiny & Mini!
Last week I received two boxes from Moda because I have a lot of sewing to do!
Fall market will be here before I know it.
I’m in the middle of writing pattern instructions so I would not allow myself to do anything but put the boxes in my sewing room and walk around them…
…my little plan devised to keep me on task.
I may have mentioned before that I love fabric???
Once? Twice? Maybe 3 million times?
You thought I loved to quilt, but really I only quilt so that my family does not die in a fabric avalanche around here.
Today I finally opened the boxes and took a peek
I have nothing better to do I’m taking a break and I don’t want to start back to writing instructions…
This it LOTS MORE FUN!This is Pumpkin Pie
by Laundry Basket quilts for Moda.
They’ll be available in quilts shops this fall.
Look, there’s black & pink & aqua
& pretty floral prints…
I’m looking forward to sewing with these.
The small prints will make great Tiny & Mini Dresden petals.
Notice my “new” letter squares?
I may have mentioned in a post not too long ago that I also have a thing for estate sales…
I found them recently.
They came in this cool
old vintage Famous Barr box.
The box is extremely sturdy, but…
I was at Goodwill last week and found this treasure.
It’s the perfect size to hold them all.
And it was just a dollar!
It’s the little things…
I know, crazy aren’t I?
Aren’t you glad you don’t have MY brain???
Now that I’ve shown you part of my new fabric I must get back to work.
More to come later, after I’ve done some more real work.
I hope you’re enjoying this hot summer weather like I am.
I’ll take 100 degrees over 0 any day!
Just keep sewing…
