Remember last week when I said I was having a bit of a tough time writing the piecing instructions for my new pattern? Well, I’m happy to report that the pattern is written (yay!), and I am in the process of making the quilt to make sure I’ve got everything right.

Lots of happy dancing going on here! Because that means I was able to cut into those fabulous Grunge fabrics. Oh my….talk about pretty! I really do like the look of that bundle but I love it so much more after I starting working with it.

Here’s a look at them after I finished cutting the fabric.

And here are snippets of each on the design wall, looking so artistic hanging out together.

I was gone over the weekend, so I didn’t get any sewing time. But I am ready to tackle these pretties today and can’t wait to spend some serious time in front of my sewing machine!

In case you couldn’t tell, 😉 this fabric line and project is my crush for this week’s Main Crush Monday. I think it’s a good one!

Speaking of good crushes – there were some great ones last week. Here’s a peek at a few of them. I hope you had (have) a chance to visit them:

Tracy @ Pursuing Joy made a friendship Trip Around the World quilt for a friend she doesn’t get to see very often. The story she tells is as special as the quilt that she calls Out of the Blue.

Linda @ The Pieceful Kingdom is making two versions of the Gypsy Wife quilt, and I really like her neutral version. It reminds me of this mini quilt I made a few weeks ago, and I’m seriously loving neutral color palettes.

How’s this for inspiration? Sally @ Q-Bits-Salmagundi is using her tableware as inspiration for the table runners she likes to make. Isn’t this so pretty?
