I've been working on a new pattern. Geesh...it feels so good to be sewing because it seems like I do much more paper work than working with fabric! This little quilt has a bit of applique in it....just a touch. I've been thinking about this project for many months now, and... finally....I get to make it.
The quilt is called Cottonseeds, and here are the fabrics I've pulled so far. I'm madly in love with the blue floral print (Vicksburg by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics). I found it at Back Door Quilts when I went there several months ago. They only had one yard left, and oh....how I wish I had much more!! Anyway...the yard will be fine for my little quilt. I have to decide which red to use. Hhmmm.
I'll have to play a bit more...audition them, if you will. Which red gets your vote?
I will be teaching this project when I visit the Lodi Valley Quilt Guild in Lodi, Wisconsin in April. This will be a return visit for me, and I'm delighted to go back to spend time with this delightful group of ladies!! I'll post my progress this week as I work on the quilt.
On a side note....at the start of the new year, I posted that two of my goals this year were to learn to make wonderful pies, and great yummy soups. Well....haven't delved into the pies just yet, but I have made a few soups.
This soup, Tomato Basil Parmesan in the Slow Cooker, was outstanding. Not surprisingly, I found it on Pinterest !! It was a teeny bit of work and worth every minute spent making this delicious creation.
