After dreaming of the new fabrics, I set about putting the borders on and finishing my "didn't go to Quilt Market" therapy quilt...it's 62 x 72 of wonderful Fig & Plum goodness! I really love this quilt, but the soft colors didn't photograph well this morning.
I wasn't going to use the blue fabrics since this quilt is going in the master bedroom where there isn't any blue, but I'm so glad I decided to use them--they just seemed to add a certain sparkle of freshness to the quilt and didn't look out of place at all when I took the quilt into my room.
I'm going to piece the back today and get this off to be quilted.
Since Monday will be Memorial Day here in the United States, I got out one of my favorite red and blue quilts. This is a "Laps from Fats" pattern made up in Nantucket, a line from Moda that I was in love with a couple of years ago...it reminds me of everything about the beach! I used to hang this quilt on the wall, but decided to wash it and use it for a couch quilt this year! I'm always a little apprehensive to wash a quilt for the first time, since I don't pre-wash my fabrics. I used a Color Catcher in the washer--and no problems...in fact I've never had a single problem with any of the Moda fabrics I've used.
I can't wait to sew today...I think I'm going to make this Layer Cake pattern!
Have a wonderful day!
