When Joel Met Tula

Don’t they make a lovely couple? Their personalities blend and complement each other yet they keep their own identities. Delightful I think! I’m going to introduce them to a Sea Garden where they can dance amongst cranberry, cherry waves.

An Heirloom in Parisville

August Hexies

Hexies Gone Wild

I’ve started woking on my hexies again and I still don’t know what I’m going to make out of them. The nice part about hexies and hand sewing, is you can always remove a piece and replace it, it’s not a rush project, just something that I can take anywhere, especially on the train to and from work and never a waste of time.

German/Austrian Stylin’

Okay, okay, this is the last time I’m going to share my bed quilt plans and fabrics until I actually start working on them, probably after Xmas. Here’s what I mean about the German/Austrian style of bed, two duvets on a double, queen or king size bed so you never have to fight over the blankets again.

Euro Stylin

I did a bit of fabric editing, adding more Heirloom and removing Patricia Bravo, Modern Affair, Peacock Eye in Orange — the tone just wasn’t right, I also took out Joel Dewberry’s Flower Fields in Sunset as well as Bloom, Bark which could reappear in a pillow.

Final Fabric Selection

Now I wait for the rain and cooler weather so I don’t have to feel guilty when I’m in the basement sewing.

  1. Those Germans, always so practical. 😉

    My, oh my, you’ve got a lovely selection of fabric for your bed quilts. Gonna be awesome.

    Joel and Tula look good together!

    • German = efficient (ask me how I know)

      I love our bed fabrics too but I need some solids, not sure if it’s all too much but I think need something neutral to tone it down?

      I love the Joel & Tula vibe going on too, I’ll have to make something for my sewing studio because there is nothing pink or yellow in our house except maybe in my closet. 😉
