I mean, how could I not when there are such amazing fabrics to play with!!!! My wonderful friend Amy Smart is releasing her second fabric line, Sunnyside Ave. next month and asked if I wanted to make something up with it. And of course, the answer was an absolute Yes!!! I just love these happy saturated colors and wonderful prints!! They bring back wonderful memories of my childhood clothes my mother used to make for me ;) You might recall, I made this Crossroads Quilt and Tutorial with Amy's first line, Gingham Girls, and I have a plan for a super fun quilt and tutorial for this line as well. More on that to come in the future!!!
I am also starting a new Secret Sewing Project that is going to have to be kept a secret for a while, but I am so excited for it because it's a Christmas Quilt!!!! I just love sewing with Christmas fabrics, and it doesn't matter what time of year it is, it always brings a smile to my face (and normally Christmas tunes to my station :) I am using Sweetwater's new Overnight Delivery and I just love it!!! It has some prints that have been brought back from Countdown to Christmas which I used in this Spinning or Spiraling Quilt and Tutorial and is probably my all time favorite Christmas line, so I am just so happy to be playing with these fabrics ;) This line isn't set to release until June so it's a bit of a wait, but so worth the wait. How fantastic is that buffalo check print!!! It will be the binding of the quilt and I just know it's going to be the perfect finish on this quilt ;) Can't wait to get stitching on this one!!!
And finally, I added another Nest project :) You might recall back here, that I was working on another Secret Sewing project using Lella Botique's Nest fabric set to release next month. Well the secret project is for a magazine and they asked if I could make another version of the project in a new fabric layout to really show the versatility of the quilt. I was so happy they asked, because I absolutely love seeing the two versions side by side and how different they look simply by changing up the fabric placement. I can't wait to share more of these in the future!!!
And those are my new Starts. Well, they haven't gotten to far as "Starts" as I only have 1 cut out at the moment, but I've got the fabric and have a plan, and I hope it isn't to long before these "starts" are adding to that "to be quilted" pile :)
How about you . . . .Any new Works in Progress you are starting???
Hope you are having a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
