220:Christmas in April….
Okay so the Easter decorations are still out, and there are apple blossoms on the trees up front, but I am working on this:
Okay so does anyone else find this selvedge snippet funny?? I think I must frame this somewhere it makes me laugh so much….but that is probably only funny to textile geeks like me (and you if you think its funny too, I don’t require that you do, just so you know) (oh, and the Robot Cake sketch…that’s for a certain fabric/quilt designer) subtle, huh? This said designer also blogged about the video that has totally captivated me all week….will take a lot to top this…
This Christmas quilt is going to be for a magazine this fall, so I can’t show much more than this on it, but I am thoroughly enjoying these Michael Miller Christmas prints…while I was in the studio today, I thought about this postcard I have from way back in college in the early 80’s….
Its sentiment and statement still crack me up and resonate deep inside my spirit….
And truth be told, I am not just working on the above Christmas quilt, but I also working on this pink/grey/yellow number for Robert Kaufman Fabrics for Quilt Market coming up….you can see bits of it here mixed with the Christmas strips….
and waiting in the wings is this project for Free Spirit…..
okay, so today I am just so swamped I can’t think straight….and yeah, I didn’t throw the links in for the fabric companies…you’re smart, you can go Bing it or Google it or something like that…
I am still getting over the fact that the postcard mentioned above is almost 30 years old….but I am sure in that cases, that I couldn’t have been older than 3 when I picked it up in college……. sigh
Gotta get back to the studio…I am think Deck the Halls music will be in order tonite….
maybe next post, I will get the Easter pictures posted that are sitting on my desktop….maybe…
Keep Happy Peeps, Keep Sewing!!

As an old geometry buff, the selvedge cracked me up, too! Not to mention the postcard! Can’t wait to see your quilts-you sure don’t play favorites when it comes to fabric companies!
Hey…i spy some Timber in the background of the last pic! 🙂 I’m loving those free spirit animals, especially the monkeys. Can’t wait til your next reveals…
Well, of course, I had to let your Timber show!! The monkeys are the main reason I told Free Spirit I would do this line…I love ’em!
I really love that your Christmas quilt is looking…well…not so Christmas-y. For some reason the white with that great mustard color makes it look so much more lively to me. It reminds me a lot of the the quilt Jona just blogged about…with all of the white.
My biggest challenge is that I buy all of these wonderful magazines (many with your designs) in them and I “oooh” and “ahhh” and then I don’t make anything. Maybe just collecting the fabric is all I need to do? 🙂
ha ha ha , love the selvedge.
I am a math geek, and I think your selvage is great! I think you should frame it, or at least pin it to a wall somewhere.
