I've added some vibrant hues to my stash, and they are a perfect set for today as we officially started Fall a few days ago. btw it's exactly three months to Christmas, just sayin'...
Paintbrush Studio Design and what an incredibly rich array of colour! There are just two tone one tone leaf 'prints' in the collection, a maple-shaped leaf and an oblong, birch-shaped leaf, but just look at the variety of colours in which they printed those two patterns--mmmm!
I got a fat quarter pack and a little yardage for the project (or two) I have in mind. I already made a button basket out of some of the red, which you can see here. I will be taking part in a hop later in October, hosted by Bernie of Needle and Foot. You can take a peek at the others's fabric in the hop (we each chose a different Fall line) by clicking:
Tish at Tish's Adventures in Wonderland
Janine at Quilts from the Little House
Mari at Academic Quilter
Here is one more shot of this gorgeous fabric (and what a lovely hand it has) by one of our chrysanthemums, such a pleasing mid-Western tradition (or is it American, period, and once again, our southern section of Canada has adopted it?) of front porch displays that evoke thoughts of wonderful pumpkin pie and apple cider and muffins and football and cozy hours by one's sewing machine...
I am still hand-stitching the binding down on Dayna's quilt, but I loaded another, which is on my Q3 FAL list and got a start on it yesterday morning:
Flowing 'organic' wavy lines in the leaves sections and a design my good friend Judy used on a recent quilt that I decided to try here. My circles aren't quite perfectly round, despite drawing them on using a circle tracing template, but once the quilt is washed and crinkly, it will be just fine right?! I'm loving the Essential 100% cotton variegated thread from Connecting Threads, (no affiliation) a gift from another good friend, Preeti. :-)
Which reminds me of two things:
1. The Bloggers Quilt Festival - one day and 10 hours left to enter...I haven't done that yet!! It's been a rather crazy last couple of weeks for multiple reasons. SUCH inspiration you will find in each one of the categories.
2. Did you remember to snag yourself a class for $20US/$26CA this weekend at Craftsy? (affiliate link) Think I may watch some more of my latest Angela Walters one while my husband cries over, er cheers on, his beloved Detroit Lions.
Eye of the Needle
Bada BOOM! Once more a post comes full circle, and how I love it: This is the last Sunday of the month and many of you are looking for Sunday Stretch, and this promised pose for your hips especially when you have bad knees... It will be here within the next couple of days, promise. This one took precedence as will hopefully one more, my entry into the Bloggers Quilt Festival. :-)
