Happy Monday, my Friends! Quilting is underway for Americana Florals. What you see is the quilting for the accompanying blocks. I am just doing some textured quilting on these blocks because I want the blocks to be just that, accompanying.
I did some smocking, sewing for baby, cross-stitching and reading this weekend. So I should be able to show you some pictures later this week. So tell me, what was the highlight of your weekend?
I thought these turned out looking pretty good…
… if I may say so myself! :) It’s been another busy day for me. I had more designing work to do these past couple of days. So not much to show on fabrics. But I am moving right along with Americana Florals — should have some quilting pictures for you soon!
In case you are wondering, these fabrics are from Benartex’s Americana collection. Take a look at the fabrics in the red colorway – they are to die for!
Happy Monday, Everyone. I hope all is well with you! I worked a little over the weekend on my Autumn into Winter project (I have some sneak peeks for you tomorrow). But for now, I thought I would show you some gorgeous fabrics I received over the weekend. This is the blue colorway for the Americana Collection by Benartex.
You know I love blue and white dishes, but I actually haven’t made an all blue quilt. So, I know I will have lots of fun working with these cold world floral beauties:
Baby has been most excited to point out the flowers to me, and then “smelling” the flowers on the fabric:
These pineapples are just perfect to go with the Americana theme, don’t you think?

That’s all for now, folks. It’s going to be a super busy week for me. Thank you for all your comments and emails you have kindly left for me last week — my email mailbox practically exploded! I am working slowly but surely in responding to you. Please forgive the delay. Meanwhile, I hope you have a wonderful week!
