Americana Florals: Sneak Peek #3

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?

Americana Florals: Sneak Peek #2

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!

More fabrics!

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!
