To start, last week was the Cedar Chest Quilters Guild Retreat and along with teaching 3 classes, I got to take a class as well!!! I was fortunate enough to take the Vintage Charm Class from my friend Sherri McConnell. It was so great to just sit and sew for 3 hours and enjoy the company of so many amazing quilters ;) I am using Harvest Road by Lella Boutique and plan to make 25 blocks so I can have a nice big fall quilt ;) I made a good start of it in class, so hopefully it won't be long before I can share this beauty!!!
And then I had to start a project with these amazing Sugarhouse Park fabrics from my wonderful friend Amy Smart!!! I grew up in the same general area as Amy and have so many great memories of times spent at the actual Sugarhouse Park with my family and my husband used to run there for State Cross Country every year ;) So I decided to make a new quilt for our bed with these beautiful fabrics that have so many great memories tied up in their name!!! My plan is to Quadruple my Ring Around The Rosies Quilt from my soon to be released Charming Baby Quilts Book. It is going to be so great, I can't wait to get it all made up!!!
And finally, I am thrilled to be making a quilt for Poppie Cotton's blog tour of their newest line Daisy Mae!! I just love these beautiful prints and colors and the hand of this fabric is so soft. I plan to make another enlarged quilt from Charming Baby Quilts with these fat quarters as well. But this time, It's going to be the Dream Big quilt (first quilt I shared from the book) and I plan to use a dark background and the navy prints for binding. It is going to make all of those pretty pins and whites just pop!!! More on this coming soon!!!
So ya, lots to get sewing on all of these new projects!!! I just love pretty stacks of fabric, but I love pressing, cutting, sewing, and quilting them up even more ;)
