Starting on a new quilt

I have started on my new quilt. I am making it in a "Crazy Quilt" fashion. I am using Tanya Whelan's new "Delilah" line. I have never made a crazy quilt before, but it is really quite fun. I am planning on making a full size quilt to fit my bed.

The winter weather has returned after a couple somewhat nice days. It started sleeting late yesterday afternoon. Then it rained and got really windy. When I woke up this morning we had two inches of snow! Oh well, spring will come when it is ready. I am thankful to have a nice warm house.

The mail man brought my package!

My package from Marie-Madeline Studio had arrived! I ordered 12 different fabrics from Tanya Whelan's line Delilah The following pictures are the fabrics I chose to create a quilt for myself.

I just love these fabrics! I am crazy...I want to hold them and just drink in the beauty of them.

I want to make a crazy quilt using these 12 fabrics. Has anyone else made a crazy quilt? Got any pointers for me?

Sewing In Roses

Don't know if I am crazy, but I think I have a love affair with beautiful fabric. I am drawn to my fabric like someone that collects rare jewels. I just love my fabric stash. I love beautiful florals the best. I prefer soft blues, pinks, lavenders, and soft mint greens. I am drawn to soft colors and designs better then bold bright colors.

I love the way my bolts of fabric look all lined up neatly. The beautiful colors just warm my I hopeless or what?

Yesterday I chose a beautiful medium blue cotton fabric with sweet pink roses. I turned the fabric into a sweet little handbag lined with a gorgeous pink striped fabric.

I buy most of my fabric from the sweet Long ladies at Marie-Madeline Studio. Marie-Madeline is a fabric store operated my a mother and four daughters team. They offer the most beautiful fabrics and a delightful array of patterns that they have created. Yes, I have to admit that I own most all of the patterns they have designed. They also have the sweetest blog

I hope to create someting new again today. Kind of helps the dreary days we have been having here in Ohio. I have a new quilt in the planning. I just ordered some new fabrics from Marie-Madeline Studio to go with some that I already have. I'll keep you posted about that project!
