Now THAT would be dangerous … to be able to run a tab at your favorite online or LQS stores. I would have to go to work for them to get it paid off, and then live in a perpetual cycle. Maybe not so bad, but likely would no longer have time to actually quilt anything.
I just can’t force myself to pass up certain patterns and this one has gotten my attention. I already purchased it from FQS, and I have started collecting different cuts of green fabric for the stems and red/pink fabrics for the berries. (photos taken from the Fat Quater Shop website)
Do you own this pattern yet? I see several of them being mentioned in blogs. I think when I make it, I will throw in one cherry block from the Cherry Pie quilt pattern by Fig Tree Quilts:
I had already started a collection of different reds, just in case I wanted to make a red & white quilt. But THEN, I found the PERFECT background fabric last night while browsing FQS. It is a new collection that just got uploaded to their site. Already have my order in for 4 yards:
This is from the collection “Nice People Nice Things” by Helen Stubbings for Red Rooster Fabrics. I’m not familiar with her, but I couldn’t pass up this print.
Now, I’m not just buying and hoarding – I do have a close finish. I just have to attach 5 rows together and I’ll share my next finish (pending the quilting) with you in a day or two.
Sparkle looks HUGE cuddled next to Rosy. We are working on a *ahem* skin condition for Rosy that is very treatable. That’s why she has some hairless spots on her right now.
Thanks for stopping by as always!
Can you share the name of the collection the strawberry background fabric is from? It is perfect!
Whoops, I see that you did mention the collection. Thanks!
I agree. You just cant pass up cuteness like that. In fact I am with you on both patterns and I think you are brilliant to add a cherry block into the strawberry quilt. I love the background you picked too. A “tab” wod be wonderful…. oh no. I mean dangerous. Ha!
Helen Stubbings is an Australian designer who has just started designing fabric. She has lots of beautiful patterns that she has been designing for a while.
Thanks for the information on Helen! I’ll keep an eye out for her other designs.
