I hadn’t actually been liking it very much until recently. I still think the section is small enough that I pick out particular fabrics and the way they clash with their neighbors instead of seeing it as a whole. It’s growing on me though, and I’m sure I’ll love it once it’s finished (if it ever is).
I started on a baby quilt today made with Kaffe Fasset stars and while I was at JoAnn’s I saw that the new Denyse Schmidt Quilts Collection, Sugar Hill has arrived!
I haven’t heard the buzz in blogland like there was for Picnic and Fairgrounds but I love what I saw! I know I will be making some clothes and quilts with that fabric. Most pattern envelopes show terrible representations of the pattern inside but I recently found a great website that shows you modern, stylish renderings and it has started a long list of patterns I want to buy. (Well, what Make This Look actually does is find a dress they already like from somewhere like Anthropolgie or ModCloth and then finds the sewing pattern that best recreates it.) A 5 for $5 sale on Simplicity patterns starts at JoAnn’s on Friday and I might just have to take advantage of that!
