New Quilt and Fabric Pack


 

Hello Dear Friends,

 


 

I just want to share my 

latest quilt.

Here it is in the planning.

 


 

And the adjusting. 

 


 And here it is ready

to be sandwiched

with batting and backing.

Then the quilting begins :)

 


I had to take a photo 

at this angle, just to see

what it would look like

to make it on point. 

 


 

I also received this package today.

All the way from Kentucky.

If you love fabric and have not looked 

into Hancock's Of Paducah

Then you must check them out.

https://www.hancocks-paducah.com 

 




 

They carry quality fabric 

and their clearance sales are amazing!

 

Thanks for stopping in to visit.

I hope I have inspired you to 

do a little stitching :) 


God bless you, 

one and all.


Your blogging sister,

Connie :)

  2. Hi Connie! Your new quilt is so pretty! Love the colors! And the new fabrics......wow. I can see who's in the mood for spring! I was in the mood to sew something the other day, and since all of my fabrics are packed away, was going to go to the quilt shop here, but they were closed! But today, that mood has passed! Oh well. I'm paper crafting today. I sure would like to get my UFOs done! Marilyn

    1. Dear friend, your paper crafting is amazing. You put so much detail and so much of your heart into every piece. I know you must truly enjoy doing it or your work wouldn't be so lovely.

  5. I think that planning a new quilt and choosing the fabrics must be such fun. Receiving the parcel with the gorgeous material would be like Christmas morning when we were children 💗 I'm so happy for you and the joy you have in creating lovely quilts.

    1. Sometimes I have to hang on to new fabrics for a while before I know what I'm going to do with them. I normally don't buy them for a project. I just buy them because I think they're pretty. Then I figure out what I'm going to make with them.

    1. Dear friend I may do a lot of quilting but there are other things that I struggle with as well. Projects that I start and that take me forever to finish. It all depends on time and inspiration.
      New fabric is so much fun!

  16. OOOH that is a lovely package from Hancocks! I'd love to get that in the mail but wait! I'm trying to use 30+ years of fabrics I've collected. So, I'm only purchasing fabric I really need. (mostly backings.) I like what you've done with your quilt, or is it still a top? Or, are you going to try to hang it on point? No matter, I really like it.

  17. Absolutely beautiful quilt. You have such an eye for color and patterns and it certainly shows in the beautiful fabrics you bought. Love the bees and flowers and, well, all of them! :-)
    Blessings and hugs,
