It’s Snowing Fabric

Here’s the first of my winter quilts, and it’s a gift for this upcoming holiday season.  The fabric is It’s Snowing by Deb Strain for Moda.  The quilt top and back are pieced, basted, and quilted, and I am now working on hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt.  Since this is a gift here’s a sneak peak, but I probably won’t post much about the finished quilt until after the quilt is sent to its new home! 🙂

Ellie Fun Fabric

I saw this elephant fabric at my local quilt shop, and I thought it was adorable.  I took a quilting class this past Saturday and it was all about using the trendy conversational prints that are so popular these days.  Since I loved the elephants so, I chose the elephants as my focus fabric.  I’m going to name this quilt “Ellie Fun” because my daughter’s name is Ellie and that just happens to be the name of the elephant fabric line (the elephants, red with flowers and hearts, and the floral are all Ellie Fun by Karen Neuburger for Quilting Treasures)!  Too cute 🙂

Rocqua Rhythm Blocks

I got my Sandi Henderson Farmer’s Market fabric cut and organized on Monday, and while it rained outside today, I sewed up the blocks:

Now I need to sew the blocks together and sew the borders on.

New Fabric–Farmer’s Market

I’ve been itching to use this fabric ever since I bought it a few months ago.  I keep meaning to get started, but every evening something seems to come up.  Hopefully tonight I’ll be able to cut the fabric.  Love, love, love Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market line.
