Happy Friday! This stack of beauties is destined to be my Meadow Quilt from Lizzy House’s pattern. I took her workshop with the Philly MQG two weeks ago and learned so much. Lizzy is a great teacher and a down to earth person. I am excited to hear her lecture next week.
I pulled my fabric stack two days before my workshop picking up the green Grove by Alison Glass for the background and lime American Made Brand solid for the petal centers from my local quilt shop on my way home from work. I knew that I wanted to do solid petals so I pulled my stash of Essex Yarn Dyed Linen which includes black, charcoal, and gray. My center field will be all low volume. I was pretty happy with my pull of 17 fabrics and I added one from Becky’s stash during the workshop. It contains a lot of Carolyn Friedlander, some Cotton + Steel Basics, a Jessica Levitt, and some other unknowns from my stash.
I am looking forward to clearing my to do list over the next few weeks so I can get started on this one.

This stack of fabrics was pulled from my stash and the plus layout was selected by my husband. We are starting a quilt this weekend for a friend and co-worker who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I am hoping that these bright colors will lift her spirits in a tiny way.
Happy December! I have been busy preparing gifts for the holiday season, finishing up a soon to be delivered mini for the Instagram Mini Swap, dreaming up designs for the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap, and working on two awesome projects for BIG things in January. Why am I telling you all this?…because I am sewing but I cannot show you anything yet and it is driving me crazy!
I can show you this pretty fabric stack for one of my BIG things projects. Any guesses as to what the fabric line is? A few hints: it is not something I would have normally picked but I love it, some would call it whimsical, and it is full of navy, mustard, teal, coral, and chartreuse green.
Leave me a comment with your guess, if you get it right, I’ll send you some scraps from the project!
I’ll review the comments and give you the answer on Saturday morning.
Well Saturday morning got away from me and now it’s afternoon. There were some close guesses! Mustang was on the right track, I am playing with August by Sarah Watts for Cotton + Steel. I’ll be in touch with those who played along shortly.
Have a great week!
