I will admit that since I got an iphone for Christmas I look at quilts A LOT on my flickr app. And I've been adding a lot of quilts to my favorites list lately! I like a variety of quilts, but I've noticed lately that I'm drawn to square patchwork quilts. So today I started one.
I've been really wanting to buy the entire Denyse Schmidt collection of fabrics Hope Valley. They are beautiful and I see her fabric pop up in so many lovely quilts these days. But, right now it is just not in my budget to buy any fabric. So, I started thinking about the fabric I have and settled on using up the Lizzy House Red Letter Day collection that I have in my stash. This will be a quilt for my Joshua - he's going to be moving into a big boy bed soon and "needs" a bigger quilt.
Oh, and some exciting, jumping up and down news! I entered into a draw at for a book called Modern Basics by Amy Ellis last week on the Wild Card blog and WON!!!! I'm so excited! Looking forward to reading this one - and trying out some of her ideas!
