Cutting, Gathering, Thinking










These look so delicious I am simultaneously hardly game start sewing yet so excited I can't wait to start! Since last week I have been busy gathering supplies, some from my stash, others from our local Lincraft store, a phone call and an online order. 

Thank you to all who offered suggestions and opinions about my fabric stash selection last week, I really appreciate your input and have decided to just use these lovely fabrics without adding black or similar.

I've been cutting fabric and thinking about some decorative stitching, both machine and handwork. Those beautiful frayed selvedges are too pretty to throw away, they deserve a place in the quilt too!

Hi Karen

Fantastic colors shown with beautiful photos. It is fascinating to see the fabric up close.
The flowers between the stribes are so effectfully.

Here we go again...... you composing an amazing quilt ,and me impressed with the captures and pretending that when you invite me to look at the photos that I'm somehow a part of the progress along the way. That's my kind of sewing......
Without going in to too much detail, I'm kind of glad I viewed your previous post of photos tonight and not before - they are beautiful - just. beautiful.

I hope you are going ok, Renee.
