First, it's my turn. I wasn't sure what I was going to share this week. Quiltwise, it's been a pretty productive week for me. I finished the quilt top for my nephew Billy's quilt, but I'm not going to share that yet. Today, I am going into Edmonton to take a class in Long Arm Quilting at Sparrow Studioz, so I'll be taking Billy's quilt to work on. Yay, I'm so excited! Once I take the class, I can then rent time on their machines to finish all my quilts. Anyway, I won't show Billy's quilt until I'm finished it, hopefully next Show & Tell.
However, I was able to finish another block for my daughter's quilt and here it is:
Excuse the ragged appearance of the second block. I haven't trimmed it yet. I had folded up my cutting table to use the floor for cutting and trimming backings and it wasn't convenient to set it up again.
I just love the background fabric I'm using in this quilt. It's called "Space." I don't recall the designer, but I thought it was perfect for these stars.
I'm hoping to have the Dreamweaver quilt done by Christmas time. We'll see...
While I was at my local quilt shop this past week, I found this fabric at 50% off:
It's called Apple Basket. Here's a closeup, so you can see the detail better:
I bought what was left on the bolt - less than 2 metres, I think. I'm hoping to use it in my Crop Circles quilt, but I'm not sure. It might be too large a print. Even so, I will find a use for it as I think it's an awesome fabric.
While I was perusing Windham Fabrics, I found a new fabric line called Farm Stand that will be available 01/01/14. Check these out:
Aren't they delightful? That last one, with the produce in the baskets, would make a wonderful backing for my Crop Circles quilt. I wonder if my Local Quilt Shop will bring it in.
