Color Love is Here

Color Love--that's the name of my newest fabric collection with Marcus Fabrics.  Here's my sample yardage all laid out on my cutting table, ready to be put to work. Oh, my pretties!


So there is already a plan for Color Love--a block-of-the-month quilt also called Color Love. It is a five part BOM with an applique' option, slated to begin shipping June 2014. Ask for it at your local There are two version of the same quilt--one pieced and one with some applique. To makes things even more fun, we have ordered up a bunch of the applique' blocks from a company that does laser cutting. Yesterday I worked on the seven applique' blocks.  It was so easy to just peel and fuse the shapes in place and then buttonhole stitch around the patches. Now, mind you, I am not the most proficient person when it comes to buttonhole stitching, but I did manage to get the job done. Here's a block and some close 1
