Not just sewing but having a blast! This new project has put a bounce in my needle and thread and this new bounce has been a very long time coming. LOL
Let me tell you about this pattern. When I saw this quilt on Joanna's blog several months ago it spoke very loudly to me. I knew immediately that I would make this quilt as soon as the pattern was available. And, it became available this week. It's called "Prairie Sweets" and it's featured on the cover of Fresh Vintage, Issue #6 by Fig Tree Quilts. When I realized on Monday that it was available I ordered it immediately and it arrived today! WooHoo! I pulled out my Allspice Tapestry fat quarter bundle (also by Fig Tree Quilts/Moda) and got busy. I need to scour the on-line shops to find a few more background prints but in the meantime I can get a few more blocks done. I've decided to hand applique the circles so it could take me awhile to get this project done.
It felt so good it felt to sit at my machine with a joyful heart today.
Thanks for visiting - come back soon!
