Rewarding Myself

 I haven't allowed myself to start something new in a really long time.  But after finishing all the Covered In Love quilts and making great progress on some of my WIPs, I thought I deserved to start a new project.



Quite a while back, a friend gifted me with these three lovely fabrics.  I had commented that I really liked these when she brought a quilt for me to quilt for her.  She had some leftover cuts so she passed them onto me.  They have been sitting on the corner of my cutting table since then - just waiting for some inspiration.



I knew I wanted to keep the pieces big because this quilt is going to be all about these pretty fabrics.  So I went to my stash and pulled some pieces to go with them.  I think I need one more fabric - I just haven't decided if it will be a gold or a pink.




I decided I was going to revisit one of my own patterns.  All That Jazz is a quick and easy project that really highlights big special prints.  The above quilt (that is the pattern cover quilt), I made using some of my favorite Kaffe Fassett prints.

I can't wait to see how this new version turns out!

  9. Yay, rewards like that put a smile on my face! I'm trying to tie up a lot of loose ends before I start a new quilt. It's great motivation, but also evidence that I have too many projects going at once, lol. These fabrics will play beautifully together. Fun times ahead for you!
