I Didn’t Order These

I had to do a little groveling to convince Dave that I didn’t order these fabrics that showed up on my door step!

I swear, I didn’t order these. I just happen to be lucky to have a friend out there who likes to share her fabrics with fellow sewists, like Santa Claus spreading good cheer.

She even included a couple of her brand new fabrics, and that adorable little scented sachet.

Look at that lovely scene on the new Genevieve fabric. Thank you so much, Jennifer. I will do you proud!

Coins In Progress

Are you participating in the 2009 coin quilt piece-along?  I have been enjoying seeing all the finished coin quilts as well as the process others are making toward finishing their versions.

I wasn’t sure if I would have time to participate, but I really wanted to.  I often have too many irons in the fire and then have an anxiety attack when I realize I don’t have enough time to finish everything, which takes the fun out of it!  I know, I need to relax and slow down!

I decided to quit worrying and just go for it, so cut up my coins on Friday night.

Coins cut up so far

I am using the coin quilt pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.  I cut ten fat quarters into 5″ strips, and then into 3.5″ coins.  Easy peasy.  Then I laid them into five rows of 22 coins.

I am using fabrics from the Bell Bottoms collection by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom, which make me think of the beach because of the bright, tropical colors.  I love each and every one of the Sis Boom fabric designs (especially the new Flower Power collection), and just discovered Jennifer has a shop where you can order finished goods too!  I have been savoring these fabrics for a long time, and now I’m happy I saved them for just the right project.

I finished my next project for my design class, so I will be sewing all day on Sunday – yippee!  Stay tuned for the quilt progress…
