I had hoped to have some kind of quilted project to share with you guys this week, but my week didn’t go as planned.
There was no sewing for most of the week as I had to take Mom to South Carolina for the funeral of her sister and my aunt. It was unexpected, but we had a good trip, if such a thing can ever be good.
The good news is that while I was gone, I had a package of yumminess delivered to my door.
I love most anything by Basic Grey, and these Grunge fabrics are soooo pretty! I have been working on a new pattern for a while now and these fat quarters will be perfect to use.
Get a good look now though, because the way this pattern is going it may be a while before you see these fabrics in a quilt of mine! I have been having issues with writing the piecing instructions…..I know how to make the quilt, but telling someone else how to do it is proving to be a bit of a challenge. Then again, that’s the fun part for me – figuring it all out and finding a way to write it in a concise and understandable way. Hopefully it will be written sooner rather than later!
Anyway, this colorful stack is my crush this week and I think it’s a good one. I can’t wait to cut into it. Here’s one more pic, just because…
Oh, and I ordered the bundle from Green Fairy Quilts – my first time ordering from them. I have to say I am very pleased. The cost of the bundle was less expensive than other stores I found it in, and the shipping was free (I’m not sure what the order amount has to be for free shipping) and fast. This is NOT an affiliate link – I just wanted to pass on my positive experience shopping there.
I did finish quilting the purple log cabin quilt for my customer and it was delivered today. I always love seeing the smiles when I deliver a finish; it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. 🙂
Now that you’ve seen my crush, let’s see what you guys have been crushing on. I’m happy to say that even though I was out of town for several days, I had internet access and I kept my promise to visit everyone who linked up. Thank you so much for linking!! And, as always, you guys have a lot of extraordinary projects to crush on.
Carole @ Fresh Off The Frame finished the quilting on this beautiful wedding quilt. I love Carole’s work, she’s just so fabulously creative!
Then there was Cindy’s (Stitchin At Home) addition to the round robin she is participating in with a few of her fellow bloggers. I think her border is the perfect addition and the way she approaches paper piecing is genius! Be sure to check it out.
Finally, Shannon @ The Story of Us finished this sweet baby quilt. (Look at that photo staging!) I think the color palette is fantastic and I really enjoyed exploring Shannon’s blog. Be sure to visit when you have the time.
Now it’s time for you to link up your crushes for this week. You can link any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
