Fantastic….new fabric from Spoonflower

Last month Spoonflower had a fat quarter sale – buy one get one free (~50% off). I got a little carried away and ordered 42 fat quarters. What can I say – i love the designs available at Spoonflower.

On the weekend the fabric arrived. I am so excited and happy with my choices.

Here is an overview look at the delivery:

I did have a couple of projects in mind for some of the fabrics. For the Orange and Grey Quilt (that now has a splash of green), I was planning on using these:

For a purple quilt like this one, that I have in mind for a future project:

For my coffee cup sleeves that I am making for my work’s Craft fair, I was going to use these as a feature fabric:

And then there were just miscellaneous fantastic fabric that I loved, one being a Volkswagen print which my husband will love:

Quilted Place Mats

So I don’t have strep throat, yay!!! Its only a flu/cold virus. I should be feeling more myself by Monday.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Over this past weekend, I worked on the placemats that are a Christmas gift. I think they are turning out great. One down, three to go.

Christmas presents underway

I got a new book on quilting the other day “Quilting Modern: Techniques and projects for improvisational quilts”, and there was a cushion design that I decided would work great for place mats. As Christmas is around the corner, I started the place mats today hoping to get them done so I could cross a present off the list.

My fabric choices for the place mats, the purples being the binding and the backing of the place mats.

First pieces sewn together:

  

Finished front piece of place mat:

I will post the completed place mats soon.
