I had some happy mail this week, courtesy of Casey York from The Studiolo, and the blog hop for Casey’s new book, Modern Applique Illusions. I was a total fangirl, commenting on one post how it was her quilt “Onwards” for the Modern Quilt Guild challenge in 2012 which interested me in joining the MQG in the first place. (Although I’m sure that had nothing to do with receiving this prize.) I received a huge scrap package from the making of the quilts, and a copy of the book (which is wrapped and under the tree, as my daughter informed me that I had to wait for Christmas to read it).
Here are a few of my favourite pieces. (And if you’re my IG #rainbowminiswap partner, look closely, some of these may be coming your way :), go #rainbowteamyellow!).
And my lovely daughter graciously allowed me to go to the fabric store (The Stitch Witch in Cobourg) on Saturday, which led to the purchase of this.
And enough fabric for some borders. I have some pink flannel in my stash which is hopefully enough for the backing, since she wants it to be very cuddle-able.
Have a wonderful week, I have the in-laws here but hope to get some sewing done nevertheless. And Christmas dinner will be pulled pork again (so good and so easy), everything I need is in the freezer or the pantry, so the hardest task I have between now and then is remembering where I hid the rest of the presents.
Linking up to Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.
