News Threads 11.5

It’s been a week of firsts so far.  I bought my first fabric for my stash this week, the temptation was too great.  I was a good shopper and but some thought into it and waited a couple of days to make the purchase. 

I will put this collection to good use for the Miss Massachusetts charity event in December.  More photos to come on that.  Below is the Floragraphix collection from In the Beginning Fabric designed by Jason Wenter. 






I love the way that the purple, green and black work so well together. 

The other new collection that has my attention is Color Splash by Hoffman Fabrics.  Orange and pink are the main colors in this collection.  It would be great for any little girl project that you are working on. 




If anyone knows where I can find some great peacock inspired fabric, please let me know.  I have a project in mind and can’t find what I’m looking for yet. 

Projects This Week:

  • Finish the quilting on Krista’s wedding quilt.  Hopefully it will only be three months late.
  • Labels for Ryan and gma’s quilt. 
  • Cut out and sew a great new pattern that I’ll talk about later. 

My other first for the week was getting to play on the longarm at the shop.  I had a quilt done in two hours and it was not very hard.  The hardest part is going on to the next row.  Even better is that you can not see how bad I did.  The thread that I used blends in.  Again, I’ll ask Santa if I can have the big machine for Christmas.
