I cut into the Briar Rose FQ bundle

It’s been a hard move into the townhome we’re renting (if you live in Sparks, NV never rent from Spring Villas), and we’re still fighting to be transferred into a new unit within the complex.

While repacking my sewing room I came across some fabric I bought a while ago, a Briar Rose FQ bundle from Hawthorne Threads.

It’s happy fabric. I’m not happy. I sat there on the floor pulling out some books and came across a happy quilt in the Schnibbles Times Two quilt book.

Last Friday I began cutting into the happy fabric.

Over the weekend I made lots of four-patches and geese.

Last night I started putting the top together ~ I’m making it into a baby quilt. Still have two borders to add.

Still not happy with the rental management nor the townhome , but I’m a bit calmer now. 🙂

New Fabric and Quilting Book

I treated myself to two FQ bundles from HAWTHORNE THREADS…if you need a great selection of fabrics with lightning fast shipping and very good customer service? Shop at Hawthorne Threads!

I kept looking at Heather Ross’s BRIAR ROSE and Jeni Baker’s NORDIKA…then decided what the heck, I’m going to buy them.

The package came in the mail yesterday (was probably there on Saturday, but I usually don’t pick up the mail over the weekend) and absolutely fell in love with Briar Rose! I started looking at them and all I could think of was…1970’s bed sheets and pillow cases from when I was little! I wanted to run home to snuggle up and take a nap with them!

I’ve ALREADY decided what pattern to use to make those lovely fabrics into a quilt! From another purchase that came yesterday, Amy Ellis’s MODERN BASICS II ~

And for those Nordika fabrics?? Another quilt I saw in the book (which would TOTALLY be cool with ANY Kate Spain or Denyse Schmidt fabrics, IMHO!!!).
