New Project ~ New Fabrics

Equal to the sense of accomplishment of completing a quilt is the thrill of beginning a new one.  These are the three fabrics for my next Journey 5 project.  I can hardly wait to cut into them.  The fabrics are all from Pin Money, and it will be a sweet little quilt with a whisper of applique.
I'll show you blocks in my next post.

This little cutie is a quilt made by Cathy Cameron.  Cathy sent me the photo of the quilt she made from my Forget Me Not sew-along.  She just completed her project and I'm so glad she shared it with all of us.  Don't you love her setting?  Very creative, I think.  Life gets in the way of our sewing time all too often.  We must remember to enjoy the journey and our time spent with our needle as it comes.  Thanks Cathy!  If you're still working on a sew~along project, please share your work whenever it's completed!!

It's nearly "Last Call" to order a kit for my next sew~along.  You have until Saturday, June 8th.  
The fabric still hasn't arrived yet....any day now!

My sewing machine is a true partner in my quilt making.  We are old friends.  In many ways, it's an extension of my arms.  So familiar, so dependable.  I sew on a Bernina.....always have, always will.  From teaching many workshops and classes over these last 15 years, I know that quilters feel the same about whatever brand machine they use.  There are so many wonderful machines out there.

I added another poll to the sidebar of my blog....just for fun.  I'm curious about what brand of sewing machine you use on a regular basis.  I know many of you have more than one machine, but when it comes to piecing, what machine is the "bee's knees" for you?  So...vote for your machine today!  


  1. remember to enjoy the journey and our time spent with our needle as it comes.

    wise words Pam!

    Looking forward to seeing the journey 5 project.

  2. Hi Pam - the fabric looks lovely - I cant wait to receive my kit for the sewalong :-) Kathy did a nice job of the Forget me Knot quiltlet - I agree, her setting is lovely.

  3. I've been calling my favorite quilt shop to see if they've arrived. She's had a space cleared on the shelves for a while! LOL. I'm dying here to get my bundle!!

  4. Looking forward to this next sew along, even though I still need to finish a previous one. I gave my vote to my Singer 301...for general piecing I absolutely love the two I have!!

  5. I saw your fabric online at Fat Quarter Shop and cant decide on fat quarters or 1/2 yards. I'm also looking forward to your wovens! I have been sewing on a Bernina for awhile now. Just bought the new 780.

  6. Hey! There's no option for "none" on that poll! ;)

    Looking forward to the Nabby's Dowry sew-along. :)
