Well, my whining last week paid off and my delicious fabric arrived the same day!
So why is it that I only took it out yesterday!!
The backing for A Groovy Kind of Love has me completely jumping with glee!
Melody Miller's Ruby Star Spring Records
For me it is the exact perfect fabric for this quilt!
love, love, love
Look at those records! My favourite title is
Fatal Fish Allergy!
I think I need more of this fabric just to have around!
I had to add a strip of Paisley and Lace to one side to make it wide enough, but I like it!
If the fabric isn't awesome enough, I received the Aurifil thread package that I won from Sukie!
Do you see what I see?
What if I remove the blue and the variegated!
Then put them on top of the quilt!
Oh yeah, a perfect match!
These are just small trail sizes so I won't be able to do any machine quilting with them, but maybe a bit of hand quilting somewhere!
I think the purple might be wool!
The green is 28wt, and the orange is 40wt
I'll have to check the Aurifil website.
I seriously have absolutely NO idea how to quilt this. I would love to do something fun and funky, but I'm terrified of ruining it.
So, it goes back into the WIP pile until then. *sob*
I haven't done anything with Starry, starry night even though I have the Kona Navy!
I was busy doing Bee blocks though...
For Happiness Circle @ do. Good Stitches I did these two wonky stars
For Jen in the Star of Africa Bee, I sent this paper pieced bear
Finally, I did another cushion with Chicopee!
I still need to do some work on my piping corners, but I really like this one too.
I used Basic Grey Grunge again, this time with Romance.
Also a little bit of Essex Linen in Steel
Here they are playing together.
I will definitely be doing more cushions.
They are fairly quick to make, so instant gratification!
So, that's it for me this week with the same 2 WIP's, but making progress.
Linking up at Freshly Pieced with ...Lee is back!
and at The Needle and Thread Network with Monika.
Have a great sewing week!
