Restash

Fabric Stash : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Those of you following my latest work in progress (here and here) know I’ve dug deep into my Anna Maria Horner fabric stash, as well as my black and cream prints. I decided to do a little restashing from Anna Maria’s currently in print collections, Honor Roll, Pretty Potent, and Dowry. Although these prints won’t make it into the current quilt, they will definitely be welcome additions to my fabric stash.

I also ended up using a lot of my black/cream stash. I went to Fat Quarter Shop and did a search on “Black“, and several awesome black/cream prints came up. All but 2 of these are from that search.

About half of these are from Sweetwater’s Elementary collection. So for those looking and wondering where to start, these are some great current prints that are readily available! If you are looking to do some fabric shopping – be sure to stop by Friday for a *lot* of deals from my sponsors. ;)

I hope all my readers in the United States have an awesome Thanksgiving tomorrow. I’m especially grateful for those around me, most of all my husband and children. I can’t wait to spend some quality time with them over the next few days!

Keep on Movin’

Poinsettia Quilt Progress : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Several hours last week at the sewing machine reaped excellent results. All the paper pieced components are stitched and trimmed! I broke my chain piecing down into piles by template and color. It helped me out mentally as I was facing the nearly 1000 small pieces of fabric.

Before 3 hours of trimming…

And after. Boy did my feet hurt after all that standing, but I’m happy I did it all at once and it’s behind me.

Poinsettia Quilt Progress : Fresh Lemons Quilts

This week I’ll start on cutting the squares to piece the background and start on assembling the blocks. Oh yeah, and there’s Thanksgiving as well. It will be a short week at the machine!

Unraveled ~ Scraps, Inc

Unraveled, a quilt by Faith Jones for Scraps, Inc : Fresh Lemons Quilts

About a year ago, I was invited to contribute a project to an upcoming book featuring modern, scrappy quilts. I really love scrappy so of course I said yes. The book had another bonus as well, it was being published by Lucky Spool ~ a new company created by the extremely talented Susanne Woods. Susanne is something of a legend in the craft book publishing industry, known for making absolutely beautiful books and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her.

Scraps, Inc : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Scraps, Inc.Vol.1 is a collection of 15 quilt patterns from all sorts of talented designers that I’m sure you will recognize – Allison Harris, Amy Ellis, Lee Heinrich, Amy Smart, Camille Roskelley to name a few!

Unraveled, a quilt by Faith Jones for Scraps, Inc : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Today I finally get to share my quilt with you, Unraveled. Created last winter, Unraveled is a simple and clean design that has fun with negative space. I know a lot of my patterns are paper pieced…but this one is not. (Some of you are probably cheering right now!) This quilt pattern is great for beginners on up.

Unraveled, a quilt by Faith Jones for Scraps, Inc : Fresh Lemons Quilts

I used a collection of plum, aqua and chartreuse prints, and I’m quite pleased with the combination. Unraveled measures 68″ x 85″ and is quilted in a free motion meandering design.

Lucky Spool is celebrating the release of Scraps, Inc with a discount for you. For about the next week, you can buy the book directly from Lucky Spool for 30% off using the code SCRAPS30. Just in time for holiday shopping, right? I hope you will check it out!
