Adding To The To Make List

March 9, 2012

A couple of quilts have become the objects of my affection.  First, I saw this one, a halloween themed quilt.  I saw this awhile ago via a blog I read (sort of a friend of a friend situation).  I obsessed for awhile, them forgot about it, and then started to obsess again.  How fun is that quilt?  It’s a color scheme I wouldn’t normally use and I’ve seen some really cute halloween fabrics.  And now I’m collecting them.

And then there’s this quilt which I have not been able to get out of my mind.  I love, Love, LOVE the colors and how they are combined.  It also uses a line of fabric which I love (Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks).  A fabric that is hard to find in its entirety.  A line of fabric that I must have (thank the lord for Etsy and an understanding husband).

Lots of good folks

I found a complete set of fat eights and a large number of fat quarters.  I also have one or two of the fabrics in my stash so I’m hoping that I will have enough.  I almost freaked out because I found the fabrics but didn’t buy them right away.  I was mulling over my options thinking about using alternate fabrics as the blog suggests.  But the options didn’t have the same appeal to me.  When I went back to buy the fabric, I couldn’t find it and though I had missed my opportunity (panic!).  I eventually did find it; I don’t know why I had so much trouble.   I even had Bill make a special run to the Barnes and Noble to get the book for me!  I was able to request the book on-line and they had it behind the counter so Bill only had to run in and pay.  They even emailed me when it was ready!  I haven’t even made this quilt and it already has quite a story.

I can’t wait to get my craft room to a state where I can start to work on things!

I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.
