I should properly say "my quilt's backside", shouldn't I? I hope you didn't think I would inflict photos of any other backside on you!
I have been so very busy with work that I've had very little time to do any sewing. I am working on a draft framework for a set of curriculum guidelines for preservice teacher education in literacy. My deadline is rapidly approaching - I can actually count it in hours. So I've not had my machine up and going in ages, but I have managed to get a bit of work done on my hand-sewing project, just to keep my sanity intact.
And I have been sick - I blame my brother, who brought exotic Kiwi germs all the way from New Zealand to infect me with. I'm feeling loads better today, thank goodness. And have a look at these:
Remember when I came back from the Creativ Festival in Toronto with that set of Marcia Derse fat quarters? The first thing I did was scour the internet to see if I could find some more. I did find some here. So I ordered a bunch. Look how gorgeous.
And she has another line coming out soon - evidently she was at Market, and a couple of people have blogged about her fabric. I think this one will be the best yet - there are lots of rich reds in it - and you can see it best here. Yum yum!
Also - in case you are also an AMH junkie like me, Fabricworm now has both the velveteens and voiles for Innocent Crush. Just saying.....
Beth asked a good question below, so I edited this post to add a link to show what the front of the hand-pieced project looks like - it's more or less the same, only a bit bigger now!
