Quilts and coffee because it’s cold… and okay, I like both. Fabric and coffee? Another favorite combination – though not mixed together unless you’re doing some vintage-aging-staining-thing.
Let me start with the fabric – something I played with and am keeping around because it makes me think of Spring.
The fabrics are from Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree & Co., Bespoke Blooms by Brenda Riddle, Little Ruby by Bonnie & Camille, Serenity by Amy Ellis, Little Miss Sunshine by Lella Boutique, Refresh by Sandy Gervais and an Essential Dot or two in there.
I just might have to make use of this in the coming month or two because there’s going to be a whole lot of sewing- and making-quilts-along.
Did you know the Moda Bake Shop is celebrating their 7th Birthday – Anniversary? They are!
And they’re starting a wonderful quilt-along tomorrow. It is based on the “Spell it With Moda” letters and quilt from a few years ago – but different. Now that they’re so grown-up, they’re adding some new tricks to the repertoire. It’s going to be awesome. (Don’t tell anyone but I might have to quilt-along with this one since I missed getting the first one made.)
Wednesday – January 13th. Moda Bake Shop! Rumor has it that there might be some prizes along the way.
If you need convincing that making letter-blocks is a good idea…
A couple of us in the office are obsessed with this quilt made by Thelma Cupcake – aka “That Thelma”.
I’ve told you about the All-In-A-Row Blog Hop that starts next week, right?
The twenty-four Moda folks – dubbed the Moda All-Stars Plus One – will be hopping with the nice folks at Martingale – that starts Monday, January 18th.
Then there is a quilt-along starting with American Patchwork & Quilting, Quilts ‘n More, and the folks at How To Sew. I’ll let you know about that one when I have a starting date and more details. Busy busy, right?
If you’re wondering how the coffee fits into all this – aside from having a cup of coffee while sewing…
Osaka, Japan – it opened on Monday.
Our fearless leader – Mr. Dunn.
And because quilters sometimes want a little treat
after sometimes most of the time. All of the time!
Coffee and fabric.
I had a plan… now I just need to figure out how to get to Osaka.
I need fabric and energy for all this sewing I’m going to be doing.
We’re going to be doing, right?
