This is my quilt for the Maine Shophop in April, using "Hamilton" by Windham Fabrics. I think I will call it "Eliza" for Alexander Hamilton's wife who lived into her 90's. The Medallion-style is in keeping with the early 1800's time period. Working on the binding today after my friend Nena quilted it for me........
And speaking of Pam, I will be offering her "Tokens of the Past" Autumn Sampler. Marcus Brothers has kindly put together the fabrics for the three darling, colorful little quilts from her new line "On Maple Lake".
Just when I resolve not to become involved in anything new, Something catches my eye! This book contains the patterns (by Carol Hopkins and Linda Koenig) for 182 Rectangular Blocks that we will be using as a BOM starting in August. Will be using Judie Rothermel's new line, "American Swatch Card".
Nice long-tailed bird!
There are two more lighter toiles that I did not photograph separately ....one light green and one tan, both on off-white background.
This line is what I call "loosely reproduction"....not marketed as reproduction but it really looks like it, both in design and colors! And here is another surprising line, "Bee Inspired" by Deb Strain (both lines are from Moda). Nice Jacobean-style florals, ferns and butterflies that could be used for Broderie Perse applique! Mustard yellow background seems to be popular this year! I feel we are seeing fewer reproductions and surely hope that is not a trend! Very Sorry to learn that Barbara Brackman is retiring from printing fabric (sob-sob) as when her current fabrics on 3 fabric racks are gone, there will be no more!! However, we all must make that decision to retire at one point or another! I call myself "semi-retired" as my shop is open only 4 days a week......
Yes, she is already six months old so I am behind.......again!!
Other great-granddaughter, Penny (lives in Florida), is 7 months old..........her quilt was late too! She will be visiting in June!! Her Mom too.
I have really reached the end! Thought I was done several photos ago, but keep thinking of something else! The End.
