After a long day of dealing with misbehaving quilt blocks, incomplete design ideas and number crunching border ideas that don’t fit a quilt center, a box came along to brighten my day. It contained some fun fabric and I’ll also show you some other fun fabrics that I’ve been finding lately.
First, Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner
Here’s a closer look at my fat quarters. I got them here: www.quiltedtreasures.net (Thanks Mary!)
I couldn’t wait to get started, so I’ve already started cuttting. For more ideas on this fabric, visit Anna Maria’s blog at http://annamariahorner.blogspot.com/
I also got this in the mail. It’s not brand new, but I still love it. It’s by Heather Bailey and she also has a great blog. http://heatherbailey.typepad.com/
Joel asked me why I put a chicken on my quilt. I said “It’s not a chicken. It’s a birdie. Chickens are so 5 years ago. The birdie is the new chicken.” Birds are everywhere in quilting fabric now. Plus, if you look close at the fabric, you can see birds, feathers, and eggs. Very clever!
I’ve been craving large scale prints lately – Can ya tell?
