Alison Glass Blog Tour!

Fabrics by Alison Glass

Welcome to the final stop on the Alison Glass Sun Print and Clover Sunshine Blog Tour! I was lucky enough to spend the last week working with some beauties from both of Alison’s latest lines. I really love the color palette she created with these prints. And text lovers rejoice – there is an entire rainbow of text prints.

Shoo Fly by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

I decided to pair my fabrics light print/dark print and create Shoo Fly blocks. These are really simple, striking blocks. Svetlana of s.o.t.a.k. handmade has a tutorial for making a 12″ square. Mine are slightly smaller 9″ finished blocks, so instead of cutting 4-1/2″ individual squares I cut 3-1/2″ ones.

A Week of WIPs

Arkansas Traveler Paper Piecing WIP by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

A quick update today – just so you don’t think I’ve been sitting around watching tv all week. I’ve been working hard paper piecing the quadrants to my latest Arkansas Traveler blocks. A bit mind numbing at times, but I only have 1 piece left on each template and then will start trimming them up!

I’ve also started work on a fun quilt using new fabric by Alison Glass – I can’t wait to share the finished project with you next week as part of her blog hop!

Oh, and this sweet little lady turned 7. I’m so proud of the person she is becoming!
