Today I finished piecing my quilt top for Doll Quilt Swap 4. Since this is a secret round robin swap, I can show you my progress without spoiling the surprise for my partner. Even if they would happen across this post, they wouldn't know the quilt is for them.
I'm pretty pleased with the results so far--I really like the colors.
Also today, in the mail, I received the purchase I made for a future project, this beautiful vintage rosette fabric from paperhillfabrics:
Don't you just love when your purchases come wrapped like this?!
And you get an unexpected extra giftie that you adore?! This fat quarter is just that and I think it's gorgeous!
I found this incredible seller when I came across her new blog Hometown Girl. Susan sells other vintage goodness too--gifts, wallpaper, jewelry, etc., not just fabric.
I bought this book today and it is SURE to inspire a future project!
These two quilting artists use lots of wonderful color and free-form construction--my head is already spinning with ideas! I love when that happens and it often happens when I'm already working on something (or two or three somethings). I do believe that creating begets creativity.
