Envelope Quilt!

Ta da! My Envelope quilt is done! I decided to make 3 more blocks to give me a nice 9 -block wallhanging. One of my favorite stores is Paper Source  and a picture from their catalogue was the inspiration for this quilt along with this quilt on flickr.



I think it would be adorable hanging over a console table in an entryway or in an office (a very cute office!)


The quilting was simple. Straight lines on the solid fabrics, a grid on the print and loopy-loops on the background. I found the perfect binding in a tiny zig-zag print from the Reunion collection by Sweetwater. 


I have to share with you my new tool that's been keeping me on track with my projects. I have a way of jumping from one thing to another, tidying up and putting things out of my way. Then I completely forget about them and you know what happens - UFO city. So I've been keeping an ever-changing list posted and somehow it keeps me on track. 


And finally a little splurge on Joel Dewberry's gorgeous new line - Notting Hill. Now this needs to be added to the list!!   . . . Cindy

  3. Oh my goodness, I love that quilt - it would look fabulous in my sewing room!!!! I might just have to add making one to my endless list of projects to work on, and I think you're inspiring to try a white board! I haven't used one in years, since my 9 to 5 working days, but it sure might be handy!

  9. Oh, that envelope quilt is just darling. Your quilting, as usual, is the icing on the cake, er, envelope. And the use of the white board -- great idea!

  10. Love it Cindy! Just beautiful! I bought a dry erase board just to keep track of my projects too, and it is now hidden behind my design wall. I need to reorganize soon so I can get back on track. I, like everyone else, have lots to do and no time to do it!

  13. I wish I had seen this a while ago. I have transferred love letters written between my in-laws in the 40's to fabric and then pieced around them and added photos of their courtship. This envelope block would have been a charming addition. I love your idea of a keeping a list too. I have so many ideas, so many intentions..........some of them tend to get lost.
