I am taking another departure from my usual colors and decided to play with more periwinkle pastels. Both my daughters think it is going to sell FAST. I shipped this one off to Newfane Country Store (VT) just last week – along with some others.
Well, people seem to really like my quilts with William Morris reproduction fabrics. I am making two more ! You can see how I am blocking out the pattern on my quilting wall. I am dreading the day I run out of these wonderful fabrics. They are so hard to find. Some came from my trip to the UK in 2001.
One of our guests in our Gloucester Quilter Apartment in VRBO loved the quilts upstairs so much, she decided to buy a custom one for her daughter as her high school graduation present. The daughter came down and pick out several fabrics she liked from my quilting room and I filled in the rest. Don’t you think this will make a great comfort quilt for her first year in college? It was fun working with such fun colors for a change.
I am working with some new colors/patterns for this “pinwheel” quilt design for a baby quilt.
Can you see them in the pattern in development?
I make two at a time. They are placed left-right to each other so you can see the back-side. You’re food will taste better if you cook with them!
Sold at Alexandra’s bread on Main Street in Gloucester.
I decided to use a Japanese style fabric pattern for the back to Eggplant and Olive. Now I am working on hand-quilting it.
I’ve been playing with some old fabric that I used to use to make children’s quilts. Lots of playful colors and patterns. What fun!
I have flipped the potholders to show you what the backs look like. I make two of each but they are sold separately. You can find my potholders at Alexandra’s Bread on Main Street in Gloucester.
