Fabric Friday: June 12

I've had a more productive week than most's been really nice to get some things finished. My neighborhood sewing group met this past Tuesday (every second Tuesday!) and it's amazing how motivating it is to sew with friends.

Now...truthfully, sewing night itself isn't always productive...this past week, I just did some cutting. I got a throw quilt trimmed and binding strips cut, and a couple of t-shirts for my girls cut out. But there's nothing like a group of friends getting together to recharge your creative batteries.
I came home and was ready to sew. I got my quilt bound yesterday, and one t-shirt made...but I had to sew it on my friend's machine because mine was acting up. It's not feeding properly, cotton or knit, but knit is obviously a bigger problem. I really need a new machine. I've just really got to decide and then hope for a sale. I've got my eye on a Bernina, but I am trying to decide which one...530 for a larger throat space? 350 for patchwork? 380 for the additional stitches? I can't decide. I'm really excited for the eventual purchase, however...
So, fabric! Yay for fabric. This week's bundle came about as I was brainstorming an alternate color story for a quilt I've been working on. I tried out Adobe Illustrator to do the design, but I really have no clue what I'm doing, so it was a complete joke. :-) In any case, I really liked the idea of purple with aqua, and thought the yellow was a nice touch, too. And then realized how similar it is to a bundle I pulled a while back...oh well. It's still a nice bundle. :-)

Top to bottom: (I'm missing the selvage on my stripe), I think the line is called Enjoy the Ride by Tina Higgins, (my fat quarter doesn't have the selvage, but it's by V and Co.), Wallflowers by Allison Harris, Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry, and Mormor by Lotta Jansdotter. Man, I'm missing a lot of designer information this go around!

Have a great weekend!
