drum roll........

Well, here they are... my new FALL COLLECTION of patterns!

This one is called Stepping Stones, it's made out of 1 layer cake (you use the leftover layer cakes on the back). I made it in 3 different fabric lines. The first is cute Camille & Bonnie's line called Bliss by MODA (LOVE THIS LINE!!)




The second Stepping Stones is made out of a line by Lila Tueller for RILEY BLAKE (love this one - yes I am a sucker for fabric)! Plus, I have been waiting forever to use this cool truck in a picture too!




One more time... This one is a line by Oliver & Co. by MODA too, although the borders are from another line.. (the line came out in stores right after I completed this quilt).




This quilt is called Trailing Diamonds and I made it out of Mrs. March's line from LECIEN. I love the soft colors here.




Here is my Sampler / Block of the Month. I have wanted to do one of these for SO long and I am super excited to be able to show it to you all now!! I made it in 2 colorways. The first one is a new line from MODA called Luna Notte.




Here's the more "modern" version made out of batiks and white. I love them both, and I love how different they look.




Mended Fences is what this quilt is called. I made it out of Centenary and Kamekajima from LECIEN. I love how warm it looks. I also love the cool fence I found to drape it over and shoot a picture of it - the mountains in the background are pretty neat too.



Last but NOT least is Sugar Plum. My daughter drew this block a couple of years ago and showed it to me - I totally loved it and made it out of Barbara Jones' Bubble Gum Basics line. Then when I saw this beautiful new WINDHAM line called Miniatures at Quilts Etc. and I knew I wanted to remake it out of these yummy pinks and creams. I love the way it turned out! (and my daughter still wants her "cut" from each pattern).



Hope you like them! I am glad they are all done!!

OK...OK...OK.. I GUESS I COULD HAVE A GIVEAWAY.... LEAVE ME A COMMENT AND I'LL RANDOMLY PICK THE NAMES OF 2 LUCKY PEOPLE AND SEND THEM THE WHOLE NEW FALL COLLECTION (that's 5 patterns - how cool)!! GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY COMMENTING!

I'm off to market, but will be back Tuesday, November 2nd and will pick the names then.

HAPPY QUILTING!!

slow down


Just when I find myself too busy to look up I get a gentle reminder and this is what I see.. then I remember to breathe.
