This new Moda/Martingale collaboration is now available! I was lucky enough to be included.
This is my Stars and Stars quilt. I used foundation paper piecing. It's not my usual go-to construction, but in small doses (just like this quilt) it really packs a punch. Perfect, sharp pointed stars.
Look what else will be showing up in your local quilt shops in the next few days.... Cotton Works! This is our 100% cotton fabric that looks and feels like wool. It's perfect to use in traditional wool stitchery - by itself - or in combo with your wool scraps.
This is one of our patterns using it - the Flower Day Table Topper.
Our friend Carrie made this super pillow with Cotton Works. (This may or may not have been claimed by a member of the Simpson family who uses it in his favorite leather chair) (thanks to Moda for letting me steal these photos from the Cutting Table blog)
In other news....... I have to get rid of 2 boxes of shoes. Beautiful, barely worn shoes. Stylish sandals and still pristine dress shoes. Poor me. It seems I now need orthotics. The new orthotics are working grand, but they take up quite a bit of space in my shoes. I now need to buy new shoes a half - to a full size bigger than usual. So in other news.... Lucky me! Shoe shopping!! (can we all say a special thank you to the annual Nordstrom shoe sale)
In better news.... How about a Cotton Works giveaway to celebrate these new arrivals!
