Coming in the mail are the best!!! My friend, Annie, at The Bakery Fabrics (Belle Fourche,SD) had teased me (and many others!) with these last week……..so, as I mentioned to a bloggy friend, since going to a ‘brick and mortar’ quilt shop is something I try not to do cuz I’m weak willed, the ‘puter will feed my addiction just fine…sigh! These now reside in my studio patiently awaiting a metamorphosis into a garden flower themed lap quilt for my dear friend, Leah, who resides in a local long term care facility. The quilt I made for her years ago has definitely seen better days and the in-house laundry, although they were careful, has zapped the color from it.
The fabrics are “Sausalito Cottage” by Holly Holderman for Lake House Dry Goods. There are other prints in the line but I thought I must be able to find something in my stash to round out and add to the 1 yard cuts. And my stash came through for me once again…..yay!!!!! A several yards piece of green from Connecting Threads “Mirage” line called “Sapling” (below, extreme left) is a wonderful green and……and……..pieces left from my Stained Glass quilt (center) fit the bill perfectly!!!!!!!! Awesome!!!!!
I have no idea of a pattern yet (wonder what my dreams will be tonight??!!??) but I’m thinking that I would like to leave the fabric in larger shapes so that Leah can easily see the beautiful petals and flower sprigs.
