After all of the hoopla of Quilt Market (which I wish I could have gone to just to ogle all of the lovely fabrics and projects), there are some fabulous new fabric lines coming out in the near future. This one (above) is gorgeous. I love the color palette, and Basic Grey is one of my all time favorite companies. Another lovely that is already out now…Prince Charming by another of my favorites Tula Pink. This is just one of the color ways. I want them all!!
Another of my favorite designers is Kate Spain. I have several of her fabric collections, including her last release – Central Park. I am super excited about this new line…Terrain. The colors are wonderfully saturated.
Sophie by Chez Moi is so cute. Perfect for a bright lap quilt or a twin bed quilt for a girl’s room.
Right now I’ve been busy working on a secret quilt. I’m using the “Glory” fabric line from Kathy Schmitz. The quilt is a log cabin design but with a twist. I have had my issues with it, cutting the wrong lengths of 30 strips, sewing the wrong strips on numerous blocks and then having to take them apart. It has been taking me a while because I’ve gotten so frustrated, but I have all but 4 blocks finished (out of 16). I expect to finish the remaining 4 tomorrow and then sew them all together. I hope that it turns out.
If you haven’t been by my Etsy shop, The Notions Basket, lately, I have every item on sale and I’m donating $10 from every sale to the Red Cross for disaster relief efforts. I’m low on inventory right now, but expect to have a few more items in the next week or so.
On another note, 3 more days until my 8th graders are officially not 8th graders anymore. Then I get to start planning for next fall, oh wait, I already started that! Until next time…lots of hugs – E
