I got an extra option to select a fabric swatch , and I wanted to see how these saturated prints were. “Red” from designer Hanna Ruusulampi – she has wonderful saturated prints…I can see me buying – I love her prints!!Sample_Spoonflower_11

Sampler Quilt Beginnings

Around Christmas, I posted a new design for a sampler quilt.  I have decided to move forward with making it up, as I might be teaching it soon locally, as a series of classes. I need to make sure the blocks work as a mini quilt (36 x 36″) and lap quilt (72 x 72″).

First step, of course my favorite part, the fabric selection. I have a open decision to make on the dark blue print….which one do you think, 1 or 2?

Option 1: Route (Alex Morgan)

Sunday Stash: More Spoonflower fabrics

I have always had a love for the work of the independent designers over at Spoonflower. The fabrics are always unique and are well printed on Kona Cotton (my selection).

This week I picked up some new fabric in which I want to make pillows from. I love the reds and the grunge look of the print. The designer is Holli Zollinger, collection Coral Summer.

I have already started using this math fabric in my blocks as a low-volume print. I love this fabric and representation of my STEM background. The designer is Berene Campbell, collection Text Fabrics.SundayStash_Spoonflower_Math

Addicted – my work in progress

So, this is the post where I admit I am addicted to buying fabric. Yes, like many out there – I can’t help myself. I see a cool new print or fabric line and I get an idea and I just have to have it. I promise I have a plan and idea for all of it 😉

I discovered, this week, how bad it is when I decided to start organizing my fabric and workspace. This is my work in progress this week (linking up to freshly pieced)…..keep reading my admission below.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Below, are photo’s my fabric in the middle of being organized. I am using comic book boards (which are amazing) to stack my fabric easily and allowing visibility. After going through 200 boards and still only 2/3 of the way through….I was thinking – oops, that is a lot of fabric. Now, to some this might not seem to bad but wait – I only started buying fabric sometime September or October last year (yes I am saying…no more than 5 months). Hmmmm….but it sure looks pretty.

But wait there is more…..this is my basket full of more fabric that I am using for dedicated projects – there are at least another 50 fabrics in this basket and most of it is from spoonflower.com. Did I say addicted…..well spoonflower is my favorite shop 🙂

So I mentioned and showed you my fabric, well the other part of my crafts include men’s neck ties…..this is my collection for making neck tie art pieces.IMG_6921

Lastly – here are my scrap jars for all my fabric scraps. I would love to here about your craft addictions (help me feel better, maybe I am part of a club 😉 ).IMG_6920

 

Oooh – I forgot, here is my most recent purchase which may have to be my last for a while….I love it – my son’s school’s mascot is a penguin and I will use this for gifts for the teachers at the end of the school year.

Finish it up Friday

It definitely was a “Finish it up Friday” (linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts)

Professionally:
I was flat out all week with work, as my team and I had a major project deadline today. Good news, we got it done.

At home:
Our house is back to normal  – all the damage from the burst water pipe, last week, was completed today!!!

Now, for my craft projects:
Obviously, I did not have much time this week but I did get 1/2 way through one of my February goals  – I completed two sets of quilted pot holders (my goal is to do 4). The Blue teapot set is now available on my etsy store. So, even though it is a small finish I am happy to have completed something in my list of craft projects for February.
