Away again

In recent weeks I've been far, far too busy. Fortunately, I have just one blog follower at the moment, so I'm betting the rest of the quilting blog world didn't notice my absence and that's okay I guess. Anyway I will try to be back here SOON, but for now I am just claiming my blog on Bloglovin :)

Part Deux: A Finished Quilt and New Stashes

Though later than I promised (again), here are some much needed pictures of what's been going on around here. First up is pictures of my first ever completed quilt!




Can you tell that I really, really love rabbits and Easter? :) These pictures were taken before it was washed, and I can now attest to the addicting feeling of crinkling a quilt washed for the first time. It's no wonder quilters can't wait to finish a new project and put it in the wash!

This next picture is some of the fabric I stashed recently. The Simply Color prints were some of my favorites around blogland and on the internet, so when I received a coupon code for Fabric Depot after my credit card number was stolen from their previous payment system, I treated myself to some of this drool-worthy fabric. I also bought the jelly roll (my first!) with this tutorial in mind, maybe to make a quilt half that size, but I couldn't pass this up when my coupon meant the jelly roll rung up at $20!


The top five fabrics are from Simply Color, in the leaf and ikat patterns, and the bottom orange is a saturated organic solid, also on sale for a great price.

These fat quarter fabrics are the ones I received as a free bundle with my purchase from the fabric seller listed above. Although they aren't necessarily my style, I bet I can come up with a Christmas gift or two to make from these that will suit some of my family members perfectly.


And last but not least, an awe-inspiring stack of fabrics received from Form and Fabric. They came beautifully wrapped in pink tissue paper along with three "post cards" with their logo. I can't tell you how much more I enjoy a fabric purchase when it's thoughtfully wrapped, so I would certainly suggest checking them out, especially if you haven't already. Their sale section, where most of these fabrics were from, is pretty great!


From top to bottom, there's Tula Pink in Coral, a light blue organic solid, Anna Maria Horner's Maybe in Indigo, Amy Butler's Laurel Dots in Cherry, Joel Dewberry's Opal in Jade, Green and Fuchsia, Maybe in Blossom, Laurel Dots, Tula Pink Hex Box in Olive, Indigo, and Honey, and Tula Pink Dandelion in Olive, Cream, Coral, and Aqua. Hidden on the bottom are two Etsy purchases, an elegant Lily and Will fabric with cute bunnies and a (not visible) Tula Pink Hushabye droplet fabric in olive. Boy do I love all of these!
