Stash Sunday

I did say I was getting some new blues soon. Here they are. Lovely, Europeany Good Folks on the left (and top right) by Anna Maria Horner, and delicate, pretty Art Nouveau prints -- don't know the designer's name, sorry. I wish the gray was Kona cotton, but its just something I picked up at Fabricland that happens to match. I can't bear trying to match solids to prints online, so I don't get many of the Kona Cottons, although I love the feel of them.

These are destined to be a bed quilt for my bed. Yep, this will be my first queen sized, and is fourth on my to-do list at present. I'm planning on a simple square and rectangle type pattern with big blocks. I"m not worried about that part, but I am a bit nervous about quilting it. I don't know if my machine will agree to quilt a queen sized quilt. It might be the straw that broke the camel's back. Maybe I"ll make it a year long project and hand quilt it . . .

Anyhow, thats my offering this week. If you want to see who else is playing this week or join up yourself, go visit Tamara at 1/4 of an inch -- its her game.

I just love the blues you've picked out. Your quilt is going to be lovely and I'm sure you'll manage the quilting!
