Almost there

This week, I am definitely trying to finish up the Neighbourhood quilt. I am about 3/4 of the way through quilting.

I am using the sunshine variegated Aurifil thread out of the Tula Pink Kit (#4658) to add some interest. I think it is looking good, those Oakshott Cottons look great!!Close-up Quilting_Neighbourhood

For my Cherie quilt, I picked out the Cherie fabrics from Frances Newcombe’s line. I want the quilt to be mostly made of the neutral fabrics with a slight pop of pink (like in the design, see link in the table).

So, last night while watching TV, I started laying out the initial blocks for the Quilt. Cherie_StartThat’s it for this week. Apologies for the photo’s…it has been raining here all day and the light has been terrible for photo’s.

Sunday Stash #20: Birthday celebrations

Toda, June 8th, is my birthday!!! I am going to share with you a couple of my recent purchases which I am in love with. First up, my new addiction – Aurifil thread…which I recently purchased three boxes. Aurfil Boxes I love how it sews, whether I am using it for piecing, quilting or EPP.  I love the colors…what a wonderful palette of inspiration. As you may be able to tell I have cracked open my Botanics box already  (the middle one) for my current project….and can not wait until I get to the quilting with the thread.Aurfil Cotton Boxes The second thing I am loving and so excited about is Cotton and Steel. After seeing all the IG love of Quilt Market (ah…someday, when I grow up), I could not wait to get my hands on it….especially on the basics package from them. Anxiety is growing….I have pre-ordered everything. to my surprise, Laura @ Little and Lots emailed last week, and put me onto this wonderful bundle; Moonlit by Rashida Coleman-Hale (Cotton and Steel). I am loving those arrow prints, and everything for that matter :-). CottonSteel_Moonlit Those are two of my favorite things.

Lastly, in celebration of my birthday, I also have a giveaway. A fat quarter bundle consisting of 15 prints of First of Infinity Text. BrithdayGiveaway_2014 Just leave a comment about the one quilty purchases/ things you are in love with at the moment. I will draw a winner randomly next Sunday. Hope you all have a good week.
