Favorites

Happy Friday! I hope you have a had a wonderful week and are ready for a great weekend! I have just a few things to share today...first up is the new Strawberry Fields Revisited Frivols set.

 I know Frivols have been out for a little while now, but this is my first one, and

I really love it! The tin is beautiful and can be used for so many things when you sew up the fabric.

 I love that it comes with a quilt label ready to stitch, a fun quote for your sewing room, and the cutest bundle of fabric. The pattern for the project is on a sturdy cardboard fold-out card with full-color illustrations.

Because I've had a few questions about the "old" Strawberry Fields fabric collection and the new Strawberry Fields Revisited fabrics, I thought I'd show them together. The older fabrics are on the left with the new fabrics on the right. They really do go together beautifully! And because I hoarded saved my original bundle, I can now make a quilt mixing both collections!



And I'm going to the Road to California today! I've heard many wonderful things about this show over the years and have always wanted to attend. While I'm not taking any classes, I will be able to see the show and visit the vendor mall. Then on Saturday I'm going to visit a couple of destination quilt shops in the area I've been wanting to visit!




 I'll have lots of quilty photos to share next week from my little trip.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a fun trip and I'm sure you'll find some great fabrics in the quilt shops;-)
Thanks for showing the old and the new Strawberry Fields next to each other the look so good together. I still have some Strawberry Fields, too (a few charm packs, a JR and also a FQ bundle) and I'm thinking of pairing them with the new line, too. Perhaps I'll use charm packs and make a Schnibbles pattern. Or one of Camille's pattern. Do you have already some ideas?

I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing all kinds of bloggers show what they will be making with Strawberry Fields Revisited. I plan to crack open my FRIVOL this weekend and get started. I have my hoard of precuts from the original release. Not quite sure I'm ready to give them up yet. Have a great time at the show! Jennifer G.
