How things work...

Today was supposed to be a day in the garden, dividing some overcrowded perennials. But the rain came and I'm stuck in the sewing room with a cup of coffee, playing with fabric! The Secret Garden quilt is looking good, but I'm at a standstill waiting for more fabric. I have 2 additional gorgeous lines staring at me that I've been afraid to cut. So here's how my mind is working this morning...

I love my Zig Zags! You may remember my Zig Zag quilt, but you may not know it was inspired by a Massoni pillow. So when Target came out with it's Massoni line this week I was able to snag a storage box to match my quilt. I feel pretty lucky after hearing that the Massoni line flew out the doors!
I've been itching to do another Zig Zag that flows diagonally on the quilt. It's a super easy design made entirely of rectangles. Seeing the Massoni ads made me think of my Heirloom stash ~ maybe it might make a nice diagonal Zig Zag? I need a project for next week's STLMQG Sew-In. This might be it!
I also got out my favorite piece in the Loulouthi line. After browsing through some quilt books, I pulled some coordinates...
I think it's looking pretty good...
And I found a great pattern in this book that will really show off that gorgeous print.
Things are working pretty well today...
