fabric love...

I'm having a problem choosing fabric. The problem is that there's just too much gorgeousness out there! I have indulged a little and I'm not one bit sorry I added this group to my stash. I've always loved Lizzy House's style, but wasn't interested in castles, peeps or foxes. This group - Hello Pilgrim -is right up my alley - floral, bright, clean and graphic. If you're on the fence about purchasing this line - get it. It's even prettier in person!
This group is Verona and I already have plans for it - stay tuned!
And this week, I'm readying for a retreat - 4 glorious days of sewing. I've got some "Secret Garden" by Sandi Henderson cut and ready to go.

I'll also be working on a new version of my "Sunburst" quilt. I'm teaching this design at an event this Summer and hope to make a couple more samples.
The strips are cut and ready to go. It's navy, green and gray - I think it'll be pretty classy looking.
And finally I haven't stopped making chevrons. This is a little sneak peek at a pouch for a swap this weekend at our guild meeting.

  4. You are a MASTER when it comes to colors. I just love everything you do!
    I saw the Verona line at my local shop a few weeks ago right after it arrived. I fell instantly in love! I'm pregnant and have four more weeks until I find out the baby's gender, but if its a girl (I have two boys already), the first thing I'll do (after calling my mom, of course) will be to buy enough yardage of various Verona prints to deck out her room!
