Fabric Friday: July 31

August is tomorrow! And school is almost back in session. I can hardly believe it! This week has flown by. I had an old college roommate come and stay with our family for a few days while she did some field work locally, and it was great to see her. I've also been preparing a very low key going away party for a family in our neighborhood who are moving to Texas. We are sad to see them go.

But, I've still managed to get some sewing time in, including my first project for the Mini Mania Challenge Flickr group! I'm really glad I did it, because it got me a lot more comfortable with English Paper Piecing, and I'm finding it all rather addictive. :-)

I'm in between large quilting projects right now and am trying to settle on what to work on. I'm considering the Arabian Nights quilt from A Quilter's Mixology, Diamonds in the Sky from Scrap's Inc, and a Christmas quilt (table runner maybe?) We'll see. Now that I have a better space to sew in (still doing the happy dance with my new sewing space!), I feel like it'll be easier to have a large project going and still do small stuff along the way.

So onto the fabric! The bundle this week is an expanded bundle of a few prints I picked out to make a bag from. I still haven't gotten up the courage to cut it out yet, so I guess that's nice because I can use it here today.

From top to bottom: Remix by Ann Kelie, Nomad by Urbanchiks, Moonlit by Cotton and Steel, Madison by Michael Miller (I think...), and Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille.

And the bag fabrics I plan to use together are the middle three.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I can't believe it's almost August either! School doesn't begin until after Labor day though so that's a treat :) You always have such a wonderful eye for pairing fabric together to make a cohesive whole. As a sort of newbie, I find this daunting!!
