My very first Fabric.com order arrived at the office on Monday but I was already at the cottage. A colleague was extraordinarily kind enough to drop it off with my neighbor on Sunday so I had it when I got home today. I measured each piece and more often than not, got a bit more than what was ordered, nice! I had ordered a lot of Joel Dewberry, catching up on everything I’d missed including Deer Valley, Modern Meadow and Aviary 2. Also in this order was a bit of Anna Maria Horner’s LouLouthi, Amy Butler’s Soul Blossoms & Daisy Chain as well as Valori Wells’ Wrenly and some Cat in the Hat for children’s gifts.
I’ve been wanting to make quilts for our king size bed, two doubles instead of one king size, similar to what is used in Europe. Since our house is retro 70’s, I want to sew them up in turquoise and orange using Joel Dewberry’s Sparrows in Aqua as a jumping off point. Tula Pink’s Prince Charming is a perfect match! I haven’t chosen a pattern yet but it’ll be QAYG for straighter quilting lines. I’d like a pattern that shows off the prints as I really love them all! Suggestions are more than welcome.
