Sorting through everything has reminded me that I have lots of fabrics that I want to use. That doesn't mean that I won't be buying new fabrics, just that I don't want to forget the old ones. It is fun to mix newer prints with older ones.
Speaking of older things, I have started a new project using fabrics that are a little more vintage-y that what I normally use. The colors for the quilt are going to be based on Denyse Schmidt's new collection Hadley (you can find Hadley here, here, or here) and use lots of other Denyse Schmidt prints plus a variety of others. This is a little out of my comfort zone but it's nice to do something a little different.
These are my test blocks for the quilt. The quilt is going to have 9 patch and shoo fly blocks. I have made a little more progress on the blocks, but I have kind of stalled at trimming HSTs. Once those are done this should come together pretty quickly. Hopefully it's not a disaster.
