“And Sew It Goes” Quilts!

April26

Now that I have had my new fabric line “And Sew It Goes” for Blank Quilting on hand for a few days, I’ve been working on three quilts using the fabric. I’ve had the designs in my head for a while, so when the fabric came I was ready to start cutting and sewing.

I took the three quilt designs I stitched up over to Betty’s Quilting etc., my home quilt shop, and showed them off. My web goddess grabbed a camera and shot these pictures. It was suddenly mini-trunk show time!

Here’s the first quilt. I just knew I had to pull the sewing theme into at least one of my quilt designs. Spools seemed the obvious choice! Click on any of the images to see it bigger!

Here’s #2. I just love the way the pseudo-log-cabin-blocks really POP with this fabric.

And here is #3. Can you tell I am really enjoying myself?

In all the quilts, I used the 4 designs from my “And Sew It Goes” fabric line (see the fabrics up close in this blog post) and supplemented them with Fusion Illusion, also from Blank Quilting.

Here’s quilt #1 again…you can get a better of idea of what the fabric looks like “up close and personal.”

All these designs are now with the Graphics Art department at QuiltWoman.com being turned into patterns as
we speak. I’m trying to refrain from bugging them everyday, but I can hardly wait!!! “Holler” to Judy and
Sarah!

I hope you enjoyed this little trunk show as much as I enjoyed presenting it! You can just bet I’ll let you all know when the fabric starts hitting the quilt shops and the patterns are available! Yippee!!!
