Sunday Morning Bliss, and a List

The Bliss:

Oh, it was a good week....maybe not for completing my planned to-list.....but when you keep yourself open to possibilities, new challenges can jump right in!!! Lol, in other words, I was distracted by a fun challenge and couldn't help but say yes.....more fun procrastion!!

I received this fun bundle in the mail (#Happy Mail, as I like to refer to it on Instagram) from The Quilting Bee, a fantastic quilt shop in Fonthill Ontario. Tula Pink's Eden prints in Amethyst. I have to admit I'm not a big fan of animal prints, but the pixel tiger intrigued me, and I wanted to see if I could come up with a small project using the line that I would like. I love a good trying new ideas and pushing myself outside of my (normal) box....

So I opened up EQ7 added the fabrics and started playing around....and this is what happened....

*(edit) Funny how things work out....I ended up naming this pattern Bliss Medallion.....

And I love it!!!

If you love this quilt pattern as much as I do....

I wrote up the pattern and it's for sale on my Craftsy Pattern Shop 

In More Happy Mail News

these fabulous fabrics arrived 

from P&B Textiles

I will be sharing more in the coming months with these lovely, gorgeous fabrics

I'm so lucky to get the chance to spread the word about the new line (top left) 
called Garden Gate, this line will be available for purchase in your local quilt shops before Christmas. Remember when you see a line of fabric you like, mention it to your local shops, hopefully they will be able to order it in, if they haven't already!!
Bottom Left is Urban Scandinavian, here in blue...but comes in more colours and black and white....all in a positive and negative version of each print.....I can't wait to start sewing with this and all the other prints too. (Top Right: Rambles 10, Holiday Ramblings Cute tone on tone whites with different prints on each. Bottom Right: Color Weave!! 

The List:

  1. Complete another month in the One Block Wonders BOM
  2. Sew another row of blocks for the Around the Block quilt top!! 12 left.
  3. Continue sewing Geese blocks together. 29 left
  4. Finish my Dog Gone Cute projects
