Fabric Treat

Yesterday I received a call from Cheryl at the quilt store to let me know that the fabric I helped her choose had come in! We all know that I'm a sucker for a reproduction fabric, so I raced down there the first moment I could.

I have designed a quilt based on a parquetry floor I saw at the Winchester Mystery House, and I thought it would look great made up with these fabrics. I was so hoping the fabric would come in soon, as I had planned to go Peach's fabric diet again next month. So, luckily for me, I was able to get some to work with. I may have to break the diet once if the magazine gets back to me regarding commissioning the quilt. I want to make one for the store, and one for the magazine, and I don't think I'll have quite enough fabric for both.

I did some more hand quilting on the tiny quilt last night, I love the way it's coming up. I have a lovely tidy house, so today I'm going to get busy on my sewing machine! Super fun!

Beautiful fabric choices. I would have weakened too!

I'll take some of those fabrics too... :) I like the two on the right, I think. I've been trying to collect some beiges and tans and creams myself for backgrounds. Can't wait to see your design!

Can't wait to see what you've designed for these fabrics. They're lovely! I'm really fond of that printed stripe.

Oh I love that fabric! I don't think I"ve seen that around here. It is wonderful! Now I'm going to to want to make it once I see it in the mag! :)

These are great pieces of fabric, and they go so well together. The parquetry is intriguing me, so I can't wait to see how this one turns out.
I think you can join the fabric diet, and allow an exception for the commission. That's business, and technically you are buying fabric only to complete a quilt.

Hi Tazzie, I think you did wonderfully on your goals...*VBS* You've finished more than you left..and that a good sign, and the 9 block applique WAS a pretty big project.
Love the fabrics you selected..I bet it will be a great quilt. Hugs, Finn
