As I await the washing machine to finish washing my new fabrics I got this morning. I thought I would post an update.
Fabrics + washing machine = NEW QUILT -- well I got the idea from another quilting blogger, and I thought, oh man! I had seen her blog post, and I immediately fell in love! She was talking about using Triangle Paper for a new project, so I did alittle research and I read that it was a great product to use. And she shared a freebie quilt pattern that she fell in love with.. and SO DID I!! Braided Stardust And I thought OH MAN!! I knew the exact fabric I wanted to use!
I purchased the Brown (Spice) variation from the Shade Cascade fabrics from Blank Quilting. ( I had made the Shade Cascade quilt top last year.) I had to go and purchase more of the fabric as it only has 11" of each color across the bolt. I purchased 2 1/2 yards, so fingers crossed it will work. And I also purchased Black - Moda Marble for the black.
And of course, timing couldn't be wonderful - the Triangle Paper -1 3/4" was waiting in the mail box when we arrived home. This will be my first time using this paper, but from the looks of it.. it looks so easy! I have done paper piecing in the past, so I know how it goes.
And, on the cross stitching front - I also started a new design - its called Quaker Seasons from My Big Toe Designs. I had seen it on a WIP and Finish post on 123, and I just had to stitch it. So my pattern arrived in the mail on Wednesday - Thursday, I put my first stitch in to the fabric (I'm using Sassy's Creamy Cocoa - 28ct as the fabric with DMC floss). LOVE how its turning out so far.
Well I'm off to see if the fabric is done yet.
