a friday fabric stack

Took a little break from quilting to pull out this stack of fabrics – a little Liberty, some Lizzy House, some Laurie Wisbrun, a little Denyse, a bit of Erin Morris… all favorites! I don’t know if it will become a quilt or not, but I do always have fun selecting, stacking and photographing them!

(Now back to quilting! I’m practicing Elizabeth’s Dogwood quilting pattern for the next quilt. Right now it’s looking kind of messy, so hopefully I can improve enough with this practice to actually use it for a quilt!)

Update: the finished quilt can be found here – baby spring triangle quilt

    I love oh fransson blog, but her dogwood patterm can be created much more easily by simply stitching overlapping semi-circles accross the quilt. After a few rows the ‘ dogwood’ pattern appears.

    Love your work! Happy quilting.

    For whatever reason, I’ve been seriously lusting after aqua, green, and gray quilts lately … I’m hoping to make my own later this summer. This is a wonderful combination of fabrics!

    I have a lot of difficulty maintaining a consistent semi-circle using a darning foot. So I use my walking foot and get the same effect. Foolproof Machine Quilting by Mary Mashuta was a great resource.

    oh my! Do I love that stack you’ve pulled! It will make a lovely quilt if you decide to make one. If you can’t decide what to do with it, you can always send that stack my way, and I could lovingly caress it for awhile!

    Lovely photograph! I have that same Liberty print you’re showing up top. It’s definitely worth making a stack of pretties to showcase it =)

    Beautiful, beautiful fabrics! The color combo reminds me of a day at the lake on a partly cloudy day in Spring. Ahhh.

    The fabrics in this stack look great together and especially the aquas! I just began quilting and collecting fabric about two months ago but your blog has really inspired me. I have hopes to create many quilts based upon your tutorials and I’ve looked through older posts to see the amazing things you always create.

    What a great idea, to just stack fabrics that you like together and then let your imagination go as what (if anything) to do with it :)
