Things are crazy busy at the moment, but I somehow don't have much to show for it! Lots of planning and such, things that need to get done. I made a big list of my current works-in-progress and am trying to tackle a few of these! The above quilt is one of those projects. I'm doing free motion pebble quilting so it will take me a while to finish!
similar pouch last year, but gave it to Amanda (she was in love with it, how could I deny her!). This time instead of using the same color fabric in different values, this time I used two shades of the same print. I was really happy that I actually had enough prints to do this. I love how it looks like it's achieved with dyeing/bleaching, but it's not!
Fat Quarter Shop had Art Gallery Fabrics color cards, I wasted no time in ordering them. It's so nice having color cards around for reference and color matching. There are cards for the Pure (solid), Nature, and Oval Elements. Don't they look like candy? Yum!
Fat Quarter Shop has all their color cards on sale this month!
Form and Fabric, and one of my local shops, Mill House Quilts.
For past adventures in fabric dyeing, see here.
Hancock Fabrics! It's called Crafty Chloe, and is a companion to the children's book Crafty Chloe, which was illustrated by Heather Ross. The basecloth isn't great, but they're quite cute, and for $6/yd, I'm sold! I especially like the gray clothespin print!
You can find them online, on the Hancock's website here.
