A couple weeks ago, a quilt store not too terribly far away, yet far enough that it takes something special for me to get there (about a 40-minute drive), was having a give-away on Facebook. I won the prize...20 fat quarters from the Robert Kaufman Fusions Collection 'Garden'. There are actually 40 designs in the collection, so I received half that amount, a $65 value!
|10 : blues, red, gray, lavender|
|10 : greens, pinks, yellow, oranges|
I also bought one yard each of two other fabrics. One is a very pretty Jacobean pink print on black with a 'lacy-look' design by Kaufman, and the other a dotted circle neutral in taupe grays on cream by Moda.
The fabrics have been washed, folded, logged and stashed. Now, deciding what next to work on. I have my Rooster project on my design wall (which reminds me, I've yet to put the flannel on the design wall), but haven't been motivated enough yet to actually work on it. The Dresden plate still needs to be stitched to the background, and the sixth block, an appliqued rooster, still needs to be designed and pieces cut and prepped. Then I need to decide how wide to make the sashing strips and which fabric to use. This project is a 100% hand-stitched effort - the goal is to have one hand-stitch finish, including the quilting, in my lifetime. I'd better get busy, it's been over six years already, and there's still lots to do!
