Been awhile..

Life has been busy.
Lots of catch up at home. DH had hernia surgery on Thursday so routine has been a bit off this week.
Kids started Spring Break this week so I should be able to get some more quilting time in...unless we decide to go away for a couple of days to the rockies.

My solids quilt - finally finished machine quilting it, and just finishing hand sewing the binding on. Should have a final reveal very soon. I'll definately post the gory details (things I've learned about machine quilting, needle size, machine speed, thread, holes, whites) about the process. I'm just sneaking into my one a month (solids) deadline here!

I haven't even purchased fabric for my next quilt. Any suggestions for colours? I've scoured the paint shops, big box reno stores, etc for hunter green colour card combos. There's NOTHING...except cognac as the complement to it. I'll put hunter away for a later date.

I've been seeing lots of solids quilts popping up everywhere - seems like everyone has the bug to work with solids! Very cool! I love looking at people's work and getting ideas from it. The only thing is - my motivation starts to dwindle when I see everyone else doing it. Does that happen to you?

I have another project ready to start - here's some fabric I requested for my next Moda Bake Shop project...the colours are gorgeous.


  1. Hi Andrea!

    I can't wait to see your next solid quilt. I am curious to see what colors you have chosen this time.

    Your next MBS project looks like it is going to be YUMMY. I'll stay tuned!

    Give my regards to your hubby. Hope that he has a speedy revocery!

  2. Can't wait to see your latest creation! I am in a bit of a stand still too, just not enough time. Those fabrics for your next project are beautiful, very francais! love them.

  3. Time, or lack thereof, seems to be my enemy right now. Your new fabric is beautiful. MBS has such great ideas so I'll be interested to see what you're up to next!

    P.S. Just out of curiosity, how do you get a project into MBS?

  4. MBS sends you fabric? well that is cool. looks like you have some great stuff to work with!

  5. Let me know if you come through Calgary... Hubby is away, but I could certainly entertain you for tea!

    And my vote on the next solids quilts is some spicy/fiery colours - orange, pink, red.
