A New Stitch & Quilt Along . . .

Hello!

Sorry I've been gone so long. I've been really out of it lately. I've been very tired, with lots of allergy problems and just haven't felt like doing anything. I have managed to get some cleaning and organizing done. My projects are lining up though. Hopefully I can get back to sewing again soon. I miss it!

In the meantime I discovered a new Stitch & Quilt Along I'm joining . . .


It's the Garden Steps Stitch & Quilt Along with Clover & Violet. Here's the sample block . . .


It's so yummy and so me!  :)  You should go and check it out!

For the quilt I need 12 fat quarters and a solid for the center. Last week I noticed that Sew Lux Fabric & Gifts had the fabric I wanted to use on sale. I could pick out the 12 fat quarters I wanted and order just them so I did. It arrived today . . .


Such pretty packaging! I almost didn't want to open it . . . (almost.)  ;)  Here's a close up of their business card . . .


I choose to use Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. I just love it!  :)  Here it is all wrapped up . . .


And another view . . .


Here are the twelve fat quarters I choose . . .


 Aren't they yummy?!!! The quilt requires two colorways so I'm using red . . .


and aqua . . .


I already have some white on hand so I'll be using that. Now I just need to figure out what threads I'll be using for the embroidery. Then check my stock and order the ones I don't have. I can't wait to get started on this one. It looks so fun!  :)

Until next time . . .
