I mentioned this before, but Anna Maria Horner and I are about to make up for some lost time together. It might have taken me a while to come around to her fabrics, but now we’re set. And I might have just ordered some more last night…
Well, here’s my latest addition to the stash.
Hand. Drawn. Garden. Stop it. These colors. When the bundle arrived, I thought of my mom. Over Christmas I asked her to tell me what kind of quilt design she liked… she told me that was too much pressure. I told her to put on her big girl panties (no, no I actually didn’t.) Then she found this quilt from Angela over at Brooklyn Quilting Co. Go ahead, click on it. It’s worth it. Divine. I mulled over guessing the dimensions, etc. but I decided that all quilters are nice people so I emailed her and asked if she could help a sister out. Using much better writing skills than that, I might add. Not only did she email me back with help, but she also mentioned that she might be putting together a tutorial – let’s all encourage it! So, now I have the dimensions and a new quilty friend. Go check out her blog – her style is very colorful, vintagey, clean – I love it!
So now I get to cut these beauties into 3 x 2 inch rectangles. Don’t worry, I’ve got plenty of TV shows ready to go on my laptop!
Here are some of my favorite prints:
And this is my mom’s favorite print:
And, yes, I promise I’ll iron the fabrics… gahhhhhhh. Why do they have to freaking crease?! The struggle! Oh wait, Just read that Molli Sparkles iron caught on fire. in his hands. while quilting. Nope. I knew the iron wasn’t safe. What are you waiting for – go check out the other stashes this week over at Molli Sparkles. We all need to love on some fabric today.
