Sara Lawson’s website is called Sew Sweetness…and that is a great name for it, because she is so incredibly sweet! Awhile back, she posted on Facebook that she felt like sharing a bunch of her new line Fantasia for Art Gallery Fabrics with anyone who sent her a note while she had supply. I sent her a quick comment, she sent me a message asking for my address. I was expecting I’d get a couple fat quarters to play with.
But Sara sent a WHOLE STACK! I am not sure if this is the whole line, but it sure is close!
I first loved what I saw of the line from a picture Sara had posted. Mostly I loved the mushrooms on one of the prints. I had no idea there were UNICORNS in it! That made it even better.
the wind was blowing in the above photo…had to catch this block before it disappeared!
So I made some little 3 1/2″ nine-patches and some 6 1/2″ nine patches for an ongoing project I am working on.
And of course I made some of these bags for upcoming classes in Sisters, Oregon this summer and Mount Vernon, Washington this fall.
And I made a sample of a Dark Block from my Fireside Chat pattern. Doing this block from the one line may not have worked as well, mostly because most of the prints are mediums. If I had used solids on the “dark” parts of the “matchsticks” this block may have “read” better in some places.
This pattern is the one class that I still have open during the Quilters’ Affair week in Sisters in July…ALL of my other classes are full. I am going to be busy! I am so excited to see past students and meet new ones there. This year is the 40th Anniversary of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and the whole week before is FILLED with fun events. If you can make, I heartily recommend it!
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy!
