Tricia, a local gal, great quilter and sweet new friend wins the prize for "First Christmas Cottage Quilt Completely Finished"! (unless there is one of you that has kept quiet about yours?). Tricia had it quilted by a woman that quilts for me too, from time to time. It is quilted in candy kisses. I love the flying geese trees and the sashing. It pulls it all together. So fabulous Tricia. She's going to bring it to our quilt group meeting on Tuesday and show it. I absolutely love it.So my first cottage flimsy is done. But I haven't taken it to the quilter. And I found out I missed the deadline to submit it to the local Festival of Trees. I will be sure to donate one of the quilts I make next year. I have some other ideas for the other 2 cottage quilts I'm making but I've had to set that aside for a bit. You know how that goes. It is such a crazy busy time of year.
Yes it is Friday. I thought I'd show 2 of my vintage stash fabrics. This one has a rick rack pattern in the border print design.
Two different prints meet the house border. I love the colors and the peaceful neighborhood scene. It is a really unusual and lovely fabric. I originally bought it to cut up and put pieces in my bag kits but I really hate to chop it up.Here is one of my vintage kitchen prints. I like the brick and I will most likely fussy cut the piece into projects. I can use the brick when I make "other" cottages, too. The blue in the fabric just pops out at you.
I've got some new bag kits in my Etsy store (or will today). I sold out so quickly last time and put some more together this week in case there was someone that still wanted a kit. I really enjoy making the kits and deciding what fabric to put in which grouping. Thanks to those that purchased my last ones!
Have a good weekend. - nanette
