An Interview, New Fabric and Sewing Progress

Fabric Stack by Fresh Lemons Quilts

A bit of this-and-that for you today. First, I wanted to share that I did a little interview over at Hudson Valley Quilts. There is a pattern giveaway in the post, so be sure to go check it out and enter. :)

Arkansas Traveler Progress by Fresh Lemons Quilts

I’ve still been busy working on my Arkansas Traveler quilt, but I did manage to finish the paper piecing and trimming. What a relief! I’m hoping to get the blocks sewn together this week, but I’m leaving for Quilt Market on Thursday so I’m not sure there will be time. I’ll share if I do though!

As much as I love this quilt I’m working on, and I really think the finished product will be perfect in my house, I do miss sewing with a big variety of colors. So much so that I put together a bundle for whatever is next (the photo at the top of this post). It started with ordering some fabrics and then I added from my stash. The new fabrics in the stack are from October Afternoon’s Sidewalks line and Joel Dewberry’s Bungalow line and are currently available in shops. You may also recognize some of Violet Craft’s Waterfront Park in there. She put such great stash builders into her latest line – must haves!

If any shop owners are heading to Houston this week for Quilt Market, we will be doing a Schoolhouse Session on Friday at 3:05 to show off Vintage Quilt Revival. I hope you will come check it out!
