Thanks to Susan P at Starwood Quilter and the generous blog hop gift certificate I unexpectedly won. these fabrics from the Bonnie and Camille Marmalade line from Moda will be coming to my house soon. I added in some of the Christmas gift money from my dear Bama Belles and got a couple more to do with it. I hope to include them in my Farmer's Wife Inspired Sampler when I get back to working on the blocks again. THX again, y'all.
Can you tell I love orange and yellow?? And that green that goes with their Vintage Modern stuff?
DJ had asked me if I was still waiting on the part of my Christmas gift from him----I am but I had received notice that hit had shipped. When I heard the mail lady out in the drive, I thought it might be here. They only pull in the drive when they have a package, otherwise it is out in the mail box across the lane. Instead it was the fabric I had ordered from thousands of bolts for Blake and Julia's tree skirt I will be making for them, a delayed wedding present. DJ said "that just means more work for you" when I told him the present was NOT here yet. Yeah, maybe but I enjoy sewing so that is not technically work. Work is having to mop the kitchen floor because you spilled your extra full coffee cup all over the kitchen table and floor. And having to do a load of towels since you soaked up a couple dish towels cleaning up the initial mess on the floor. SIGH.
The ivy on the left is the backing. The green is a bit brighter than I hoped but I'll probably use it anyway unless I have a better option in the fabric bin. The red is perfect though not as orange as it looks in the picture.
I will use the Frosted Tree Skirt pattern from Connecting Threads but sub out the kit fabric for the stuff above . The kit fabric will combine nicely with a previous line from CT called Twilight Frost---won't go to waste. It is no longer available on their website but the pattern is now able to be downloaded , now calling it "Star Bright Tree Skirt. It was gorgeous in the frosted blues!!.
I will finish up Allison's first, then do this one and get started back on my version of the Oxmoor House quilt. But for today, I am going to get back to my snowman row that I started yesterday for the guild row of the month. I drew it up in EQ so I could foundation piece it but only got as far as their hats chaining 8 blocks through.
And sew it goes------
