Continuing the theme from last week, I received another amazing package in the mail this week. Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs and I were trying to figure out how to get together for a sewing retreat this fall, and in the end we had to make do knowing we will see each other at QuiltCon in Pasadena next February for the time being. Cheryl is able to get some really amazing fabric at discounted prices once or twice a year, and the last time she went to the sale, she picked up some yardage of a few solids she thought I could use for quilt backings and she mailed them to me this week.
The purple/lilac color is Kaffe Shot Cotton in Pudding and the light blue is Free Spirit Solid in Caribbean.
Cheryl also included this really interesting Anna Maria Horner print, Crossing Paths from the Lou Lou Thi Needleworks line. I can see using it for hand quilting (following the printed cross stitch x’s) or making something that looks intricately pieced from fabric! As an interesting side note, this is a wide fabric that is 58 inches width of fabric!
The last item tucked in the package was the mini quilt version of Snowflake Shimmer that Cheryl made during my first hosted QAL last summer. I am going to enjoy getting to see it hanging in my sewing room every day!
The kindness of others has really touched me lately, and I deeply appreciate it. Speaking of Quilt Alongs, I had originally tentatively planned to host another Quilt Along starting in September, but life has pulled me in many different directions lately. How would people feel about a low key Triangle Transparency quilt along? Or is there another one of my quilt patterns that might speak to you more? Let me know in the comments!
Linking up with Sunday Stash.
