New Fabrics Make Me Happy

Thank you for the feedback on my patchwork arrangement poll! I still haven’t decided which one to do, but I will definitely show you the final project. I’m looking forward to seeing what Sew,Mama,Sew has in store for us this week.

When I decided to join in the Bronte-Along, I remembered to have another look at Melissa Averinos’ first fabric collection, Sugar Snap. For some reason, I didn’t buy any of these fabrics when they initially came out. Why, I don’t know. Probably just trying to cut back on fabric purchases.

I decided some fat quarters were a must-have! I already had inspiration in mind, something from this book.

I also didn’t buy any of Laura Gunn‘s Poppy collection when that collection first came out. But I loved the look of them too. Very painterly and artsy.

I already have them cut up, pieced back together, and ready for final assembly as part of my ongoing clutch experiment.

Having these colorful fabrics on my sewing table makes me happy. They are ready to be cut up, rearranged, and patched into something useful and fun. Can’t wait to show you the finished patchwork. Anyone have any current patchwork projects you’re excited about?
