So I gathered my favorite fall-feeling Fig Tree fabrics in red, green, orange, butterscotch, plum, and brown and set to playing!
I've been having a lot of fun playing with these fabrics. I'm using one of my favorite fall blocks in a fun setting (pattern will be available soon) and have really had a lot of fun with the low-volume backgrounds (I used a mix of Fig Tree fabrics, Bella Ivory 9900-60, Minick & Simpson backgrounds, and Moda Muslin Mates). I just need to trim these half-square triangles this morning, and I'll be ready to start putting blocks together. I can't wait!
Since it's Friday Favorites day, I also thought it would be fun to share some fun things that arrived this week from Fat Quarter Shop.
First, they sent three of their new tins...these adorable tins are 8 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 1" tall and are perfect for storing thread, pins, paper piecing supplies and really anything you can think of!
They also sent along a copy of The Jolly Bar Book which contains 20 fast and fun patterns for use with Jolly Bars (5" x 10" rectangles). This is a perfect book if you have a lot of left over Layer Cake squares: simply cut them in half and pick a pattern!
Finally, I want to share these beautiful Valley fabric quilts from photos sent to me by Sigi. She made these beautiful quilts for her daughters, and I just love them both!
Sigi has named them the Sunrise to Sunset quilts because of the fun lay out they chose for the blocks, and she was able to make both of these quilts from a fat quarter bundle.
Thank you, Sigi, for sending these photos and allowing me to share on the blog...I love seeing quilts and projects with our fabric!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend...thanks so much for stopping by!
