Fabric Out, Fabric In

It’s been rather quiet on the blog lately.  Work has been crazy and I started class again, but this weekend I sat down in front of my Baby(lock) and finished piecing my Wonderland quilt top.

I <3 it!  I even ordered my backing fabric from Sweet Pea Fabrics on Etsy (which arrived superfast!), but I’ll probably end up piecing my backing for something different. 

Right after finishing my Wonderland top, I cut into my stash of Cherish Nature by Deb Strain for Moda.

I love this line…and from the moment I saw it, it reminded me of my high school best friend who now lives across the country.  She was recently married so this will make a nice gift. 

img_0516                A few of the blocks I have pieced…only 65 or so more to go! 

It’s a very simple design and I’m even incorporating other fabric lines into the quilt.  I’m planning for the quilt to measure 64” x 72”…for a total of 72 blocks.

Lots of fabric in lately including a fat quarter bundle of Bliss and a fat eighth bundle of Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Thanks Julie!).

I have no plans for Bliss yet (any suggestions)…but the Breakfast at Tiffany’s will most likely become many (many) half square triangles.

I love the wonderland quilt! What a great effect those blocks give. Can't wait to see the full thing.

And drooool over the Cherish Nature fabric.

Beautiful!!! I love the Cherish Nature line (and your extras- I just bought that blue print, 4th one down from the top, the other day). I can't wait to see what you come up with for your fat quarters :)
