Sunday Stash - A Little Charley Harper

Thanks goodness I was not one of the many bloggers who put themselves on a fabric diet this year.  I knew if I had, I would be breaking that resolution early in the year!



And what is my first fabric purchase of 2014?  Why some Charley Harper of course!
(I have been patiently waiting for these lovelies to start appearing.)

Not sure what these will become but for now, I am just enjoying them as they are!

I have been a long time fan of Charley Harper's artwork.  I am always getting out his books and dreaming of someday creating a quilt using his art as inspiration.  This one is one of my favorites!

And his mosaic murals...They are almost a quilt-by-numbers!



I'll leave you by sharing one of my favorite pieces that hangs in my sewing room - It always makes me smile just looking at it!

You have me feeling so jealous! I really admire those!

Sarah @ sarahquilts.com said...

Woah. Please please please create a quilt from one of those art pieces. That would be so cool.

I agree with Sarah, those pieces would make a great quilt :-)

Love them all, but the last one is super cute.

Those images are begging to be made into quilts. You should definitely do it!

I had to come check out your Charley Harper! I've really enjoyed playing with mine. I've got a wall hanging and a pillow at the moment, but I'm hoping to put together a throw size quilt next. I look forward to seeing what you make with yours!!

I forgot to mention that I LOVE that cardinal in a birdbath. I can see why it makes you smile!

Cardinals are my fave birds, so I must grab some of this! Thanks for linking up and making me want to shop! Haha

Oh I am so excited you bought the CH fabrics! I'm one of those that's supposed to be on a fabric fast but I do so like these fabrics and I'm glad at least someone has them and loves them :)
