I haven't touched my sewing machine for days......until yesterday, and this is what I made.
I gathered only Marcus Fabrics together in one place and started creating. I wasn't surprised that I had so many fat quarters and half yards. I searched through every drawer, bin and cupboard, and now I have all of my Marcus fabrics in one place. That was fun! I found some forgotten treasures.
Putting combinations of beautiful fabrics together is my favorite part of the quilting process. Some of the fabrics on the table go back a few years, but they are not out of date by any means.
Timeless fabrics blend together beautifully. That is the beauty of working with fabrics from the same company, and in many cases the same designer.
I love touching the fabrics......it has a good "hand", the feel of quality fabric.
Mixing the old with the new is just plain fun!
I begin with a beautiful center.
The beautiful center leads me to the next fabric choice, and then the next. I get to put nine different fabrics together for each block. The combinations are endless!
The blocks are 9" now and they will finish at 8-1/2" when sewn together.
I'll be playing around with the setting for the blocks. As I get more made, they will "talk" to me and tell me where and how they want to "be" in the end.
We are finally getting some decent amounts of rain in California. I've been hanging out in my sewing room listening to the rain pounding on the roof. It is wonderful. We finally put the bucket away that we kept in the kitchen sink to collect extra water for the yard.
On that note, may your "bucket" list of quilts always be full.
