diving into a new project + giveaway

hello Monday!

and Happy Memorial Day…for those living in the states…

diving into a new project

so…maybe you are like me…you see a quilt idea and decide you just have to have it…so you purchase the fabric it was made in and the pattern….

diving into a new project

but you know it is a project that will take some time…so you set it aside…life gets busy and you find excuses not to get started…well over the weekend, since I wasn’t too busy, I decided to pull this project out…and thought it would make a great new blog series…so my fabric is Diving Board from Alison Glass...if you have been here much, you know I have a sweet spot in my quilting heart for Alison and her fabrics…

stay tuned…

any great ideas that you have done or seen done with this line??

the giveaway for today….well, I can tell you it will be fun stuff…

leave a comment and I will announce a winner on Friday…

Happy Sewing!

    Love Alison Glass.
    It must be in the air, but I’m starting a new project today too. Much smaller than yours. Good luck on your adventure.

    I saw a seed quilt that would really show off that fabric.

  11. Elizabeth May 27, 2019 at 8:46 am #

    The basket of fabrics is very pretty.

    I love Alison Glass her fabrics play so nicely with Tula and Kaffe.

    I love fabric period! I also love starting new projects. I usually start cutting out a new quilt when I’m getting bored with the one I’m working on. That way, when I’m done, I don’t have to cut out the fabric, I can just start sewing! Sometimes when I don’t feel like sewing, I’ll pick out the fabric for a new pattern, making myself “quilt kits”.

    Those fabrics are darling. I love the bright colours.

    I don’t suppose stashing her fabric forever, to take it out and pat it occasionally, counts as a good project? Looking forward to seeing your ideas.

  20. Patti A. May 27, 2019 at 6:27 pm #

    Happy Memorial Day to you also! Whatever you do with it you can’t go wrong with her fabric. What fun just playing with it.
