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 :)
Have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
