...start a new project!
I know, I know, where are all those finishes I've been promising? Well, I've been working on something different every day, mostly to avoid the quilting on my nine patch quilt. Jillian suggested a while ago that I was Wonder Woman for my endurance on another project. I wish I was, because I could sure use Wonder Woman's help when I'm stuffing these quilts through my little sewing machine! I am less than halfway done with the nine patch, and I am already reconsidering my quilting plans for all my future projects, lol. Maybe the next step will be to rent some time on a longarm.
These fabrics above are from the new Victorian Modern collection from Andover. I bought them from a new place for me, Ladyfingerssewing.com, and I was very happy with them - fast service and great prices.
The colours in my photo, and also in the shop photos, are not true. When you see them in real life they have a brownish undertone, rather than the grey undertone I expected from a collection using the word "modern." In any case they are still really nice, but I am glad I waited to buy the co-ordinating blenders until I had the fabrics.
That's what I did today! I saw on Debra's blog that The Quilt Store in Newmarket had all their fabrics half price (today was the last day, unfortunately), so I tootled up there with my fabrics in hand and bought these:
And this is the background fabric:
What's it all for? Stars for a New Day!
