Rainy day fun
It's a lovely rainy day in Arizona. Any rainy day in Arizona is lovely because there are so few of them. It was a perfect day to sew especially after I checked my mailbox and found that my scrap bag of fabric from Homestead Hearth had arrived. I ordered a bag after reading A Sentimental Quilter's blog post. I want to make some historical looking quilts for the granddaughters American Girl dolls and this looked like a great way to get the "look."
This week I also noticed that the Temecula Quilt Co. was starting a new sew along honoring the 25th anniversary of Judie Rothermel designing for Marcus Brothers. When I saw this fabric I knew that I wanted to sew along and now had fabric which would give me "the look." This is my first row sewn today. It began on January 25th and a new row will be up the next four Fridays. The sashing fabric is a fat quarter that I already had on my shelf. It will be bigger than a doll quilt but looks like fun. Hope there is something left for my girls!
