Wishes for Wanderings Fabric Tour!!!

I had so much fun participating in my good friends Jina and Lori first fabric line tour, Prairie Sisters, and was thrilled when they asked if I wanted to participate in their second fabric line,  Wanderings Fabric Blog Tour !!!  And just like before, I decided I wanted to make up a new quilt design that was something soft and sweet, just like the  Wanderings Fabric !!   And here it is ;)  I am calling it Wishes!!

 I just loving working with these beautiful Poppie Cottons!!!  The color palate of  Wanderings is quite different from what I normally sew with.  It is so muted and soft, but it just makes it oh so pretty.   And I love all of the tiny flowers and butterflies, and the blender prints are perfect for tying it all together.  

So I have had this Wishes design in my EQ file for some time now and I was just waiting for the right fabric to come along.   I just love all of the soft colors in those blocks.   It really just makes the design well, twinkle ;)    The Wishes design is a really fun one to make that has a lot of basic quilting techniques to learn along the way.  Some tiny piecing in the stars, some stitch and flip in the small twinkles, and some lattice blocks in the large twinkle.    All fun and fast and and so great to learn.   

And while I was really hoping to get this quilted in time for the Fabric Tour, I am planning on making Wishes a new Happy Quilting Pattern  so I wanted to do some custom quilting and time just ran out :)  Honestly, I don't know why I think I can get anything done in the summer.    I have plans to make it in 4 size options and the block is big, so that is always fun because before you know it, you have enough blocks for a really big quilt!!    It is going to be so awesome.   (and when it is released, it will be on sale, just sayin :)  

And I really hope to have this pattern Coming Soon!!!   And it should come out right about the same time that Decades Past from the previous fabric tour comes out as well. Wow, I can't believe I don't have that one done yet.  True Story guys, I was gone more days in the summer than I was home.   But it's all good, because my kids are growing and I don't want to miss those moments ;)    They all go back to school in less than two weeks and then life can return to some kind of  "normal" routine.   And then I have some serious pattern work to get done!!   (I am working on 2 more as well but those are slated more towards the end of the year ;)    For now, I am  going to load Wishes on the Longarm and just enjoy quilting on these beautiful Wanderings fabrics!!!

Thank you so much to Jina and Lori for allowing me to play with these fantastic Poppie Cottons fabrics!!!   And for more  Wanderings fun, be sure to Hop over to the Poppie Cottons blog  to check out more blogger goodies from this awesome fabric blog tour :)

Thanks for popping in today and every day.  I am just so grateful to have this space to share my love of quilting!!!

Have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

  1. I really love your new pattern, and I love the new fabric in it too! Hugs, H

  2. Yes, I love block of the months. Unfortunately I don't usually get to actually do them when they are released, I have two handicapped sons & I have to squeeze in my sewing time.

  3. I have never done a Block of the Month. I love them, but don't have the time to participate.

  4. I showed my love by going to your Facebook page and liking it.

  5. I have done a block of the month....My version of Jacquelynne's bee quilt is hanging on my living room wall.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
