Fabric love............ from Exuberant Color

I have spent some quality time with my Marcia Derse fabrics the last couple weeks.  Wouldn't you think after making all of these quilts that I would be almost out of the fabric?

Well even after making all of those quilts and tops and making 8 curated packs of the Marcia Derse fabric for my pop-up shop (which opens tomorrow for subscribers to my email list) I still have some left.  There is even one more pile of her latest 2 lines that isn't in this box. Surprised?  No, I didn't think so.
I have some ideas ...

June monthly recap........... from Exuberant Color

I couldn't make a decision what to finish in June so I only had starts instead.  Two of the projects were sewn together by the end of the month, one more is clipped in rows ready to sew.
This Kaffe collective quilt top started out as just rectangles and then I had the bright idea to work in a few orphan blocks.  It ended up 48" x 65.5"
This Marcia Derse quilt has a summer beach vacation vibe.  I showed 2 layouts and the comment votes were about half for each.  I decided on the first one because ...

Started sewing.......... from Exuberant Color



I decided to sew this quilt top together for another finish for June.  I still have 3 rows to sew so I'll finish it this morning.  I didn't get anything quilted and totally finished so a couple tops sound good for my monthly total.  

It cooled off last evening after a few storms passed near us but it was still tropical humidity.  I went out and pulled some grass around my peonies and found a few other weeds to pull.

I will be mentioning my pop-up shop every day until it opens so newcomers and occasional readers will ...

Waves and net......... from Exuberant Color


I loved all of the comments and votes yesterday for my layout.  One that I hadn't considered was running the rows horizontally so they would look like waves.  I decided to change the top and right triangular section to waves and leave the rest as net on the beach to see if that would work.  I think I would have to run all of the fabric rows horizontally where I have them all vertical now.  I think that might be fun to try but I ran out of time yesterday.  I'm working on a pop-up shop and that ...

Beachy colors................ from Exuberant Color


I was looking through my Marcia Derse fabrics and one of her older lines was called "Shoreline".  The colors were reminiscent of the beach, water, driftwood, sea grass and other coastal things so I thought I should make a summer vacation quilt.  I added a few pieces from some of her other lines too to have a good variety.  This is the first layout, kind of like twisting rope.

This second layout looks like a net thrown over the sand.  I just had to turn the blocks in every other row for this layout.  Which one should I sew?
Here ...

Strange Times from The Snarky Quilter

Who knew quarter inch wide elastic would become such a sought after commodity? And the surge of videos on how to make bias tape is another sign of our times. Then, there is a rush to buy HEPA vacuum cleaner … Continue reading
