Portsmouth

I received my sample fabric of Portsmouth a couple of weeks ago.  It is now being shown to shop owners all over the world by the Moda Fabric salesforce.  What this means, is that in September it will be in shops for you!

I auditioned lots of pieces with denims, chambrays, and this black cross weave from Moda fabrics.  All work beautifully with Portsmouth.  You'll be seeing a quilt with this cross weave soon.

 In 14 evenings I hand quilted Hurrah!  It's one of my favorites.  Simple, modern, classic Americana.

 Yes, it's the middle of April.  Really.  The pattern can be found HERE

This is Sweet William. Half triangle squares - and strips...... what could be more fun.  You can find the pattern HERE 



We hope you like it as much as we do.  Comment here before midnight Friday April  20th and you could win a Portsmouth Jelly Roll!

Laters,

Laurie

I don't know how you keep coming up with such wonderful collections of red, white, and blue. All are different but so appealing.

Susan G. said...

Seeing you post made me laugh. My girlfriend said at her local quilt shop the owner told her that no one hand quilts anymore when she asked about quilting thread. We both thought that was a bunch of noise. Your hand quilting is beautiful. As always your red, white and blues are fabulous. The black cross weave is interesting too. Look forward to see how you will be using it.

Amy said...

You've done it again. This is my new favorite fabric. It will be hard to wait for it to get into the stores. Sweet William!!!

I have been following your fabric and patterns for almost a year....Love them and have purchased several large groups but still am afraid to cut into it. Can’t make a decision at all...might have to consult a quilt shop here to get good suggestions. I want to show off the beautiful designed fabric to the hilt! Keep giving us so much! Thank you!
