First, I would like to thank all of you who offered me such lovely words of comfort about my grandmother. I apologize for not thanking each of you individually. It's just too painful right now. I hope you understand how much I appreciate all your kind thoughts, though.
After an incredibly busy 2 weeks, I am finally back at my sewing machine. My new project is using a Moda fabric designed by 3 Sisters called Portobello Market, which won't be in stores until September. I'm using a FQ bundle my quilt shop owner got at Market to make a shop sample.
The pattern is also new - it's called 4OT and is designed by my very talented and creative friend, none other than the heart and soul behind Miss Rosie's Quilt Company - Carrie Nelson. I emailed Carrie asking for her advice about a pattern of hers that would be suited to this line of fabrics and she showed me this one that she designed around the very same fabrics. The pattern will be in stores soon, but I got a special advance copy so I could get started right away, and I'm enjoying the new design very much.
There will be some larger stars that surround these 12" blocks in gorgeous reds and darker blues. And alternate blocks with a smaller 9-patch inside a square on point. Stay tuned to see my progress on this beauty!
