I’m currently working on two new quilts which I will share with you here. But this post is also to share some random (but pretty) photos I’ve captured this Spring. I hope they make you smile. 🙂
This Spring I’ve been really inspired by all of the gorgeous flowers blooming in my yard and at the Farmer’s Market. It’s been showing through my quilting. Though most of the flowers in my yard are wilted by now, I’m trying to keep the blooms alive with my quilts.
Above is my latest Quilt as you Go (my book “Quilt-As-You-Go Made Modern” comes out this September!). Though it’s not quite assembled yet, it’s already Paige-approved.
Ba-da-boom! I’ll never tire of these luscious blooms. It makes me sad that peonies only come once a year, but it also makes them all the more special. 🙂
There’s nothing better than a fresh vase of flowers…(and stack-o-fabric from Whimsy Quilts)…to brighten your entryway, am i right? Obviously Paige agrees (as you can see from her excitement).
I’ll be sure to do another post once this quilt is finished. Paige continues to cheer me on even with all these work-in-progresses. Too many projects, too little time. I guess Paige will be lounging on some unfinished quilts for a while.
My weekly stop to the Farmer’s Market. At $5 bundle, no gal can say no!
Another week, another bundle. I’m telling you…I’ve been really inspired by flowers this Spring! Hanging on the wall is my Tiny Tulips pattern (www.jeraluisa.etsy.com). 🙂 It’s the perfect entryway quilt.
Also, I just had to brag about this. I’m one of those people that never win anything. Until now! Check out this cute red, white and blue banner I won from Debbie at Happy Little Cottage!
I didn’t win these handmade crocheted cherries, but aren’t they adorable? I got these from Heather over at Vintage Grey Handmade. I’ve kind of been obsessed with all these handmade goodies thanks to instagram.
And here are the fabrics I’m working with for my next pattern. Don’t you love the vintage/French yet traditional vibe of this collection? It’s a mix of Maison Blue by Robyn Pandolph and the Durham Collection by Lecien.
Another unfinished quilt for Paige to lounge on…but she’s not complaining. Here’s a sneak peak of the quilt. And some fun news, when the pattern comes out (hopefully within the next month), I’ve collaborated with Whimsy Quilts and Fabrics to do a quilt kit to go with my pattern, so stay tuned!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and seeing what i’ve been up to. It was a bit random, only because I don’t post often enough!
With that i’ll leave you with this super-happy picture of the “cute room” at Keepsake Cottage Fabrics in Bothell, WA. I’m teaching a class here on June 29th. If you’d like to sign up, i believe there’s one spot left. 🙂
