More Fabric Please

So when do you start a new project?  I have six quilts in the wings waiting to be quilted, and at least ten partially pieced quilts needing finishing.  I promised myself I was going to catch up, but all it took was a poke from a student ” Are you going to teach IMG_6109

“Lemoyne Trails?”  Of course, I love that pattern, and it’s already on my to do list.  This is a Studio 180 Design quilt, designed by Pam Goggans from Sager Creek Quilts & Yarnworks.  I have made several of Pam’s quilts, she is a fabulous designer and a fellow Certified Instructor I am looking forward to meeting.

So time to buy more fabric.  I love picking out fabric for quilts.  Putting those beautiful colors together.  Don’t they look delish?

Inspiration for color comes from so many places.  I was never one to be able to use a color wheel, and carefully plan my pattern of color.  Even if you did that when you hit the fabric shelves the exact color is never there.

I recently taught at the Old Man River Quilt Fest In Mississippi.  There were several other teachers there I had the pleasure of meeting; Debby Maddy, Natalie Bonner, Carol Jaynes and Charlotte Angotti.  I have been following Charlotte on Facebook and she regularly posts beautiful pictures of “color”.  I just love them.  They remind me that there is color all around.  Always inspiring for a new quilt …. or just a purchase of more fabric.IMG_6113
