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
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…
