A Little Quiet Time

It's been a little bit silent here but I am now off work for a couple of weeks and taking a deep breath and getting some much needed quiet. I haven't sewn for a few weeks but visions of new projects are whirling about in my head for 2011. In the meantime I won something!
The fabulous Kath Mack from Pink Chalk Fabrics had a giveaway and I won! This book is right up my alley with all the colorful projects. I love color.

I love this baby quilt and will definitely be making this.

And this quilt-Love It! I love the color combinations and the simple graphic design. It reminds me of the Quilts From Gee's Bend, a show I was lucky enough to see in person in DC years ago.

Now if you have never purchased fabric or patterns from Kathy you need to go to Pink Chalk Fabrics right now and browse. I love the fat quarter packs she puts together, especially the color stacks. I recently bought a solid color stack for some of those 2011 projects. She has a great eye for fabulous fabric and I like finding something a little different from other online stores here.

By the way, it looks like we'll be having a brown Christmas up here in NH. No Snow! Unheard of in these parts. There was a snow storm yesterday that hit south of us in parts of Massachusetts but we got nothing. Can't remember when that has happenned before. 


  1. Congrats on your win and also for your quiet time...can't live without that!
    I heard that we are sending you some snow here from California hopefully in time for Christmas.
    Hope you enjoy it :-)

  2. Congratulations on winning the book. It looks amazing. I love the pictures you've shown! Enjoy your time off!!

  3. I love that color block quilt! The quilting on it is my favorite part. I bet it feels good to run your hands over all the ribbing.

    Enjoy your time off. Happy Holidays!

  4. What a beautiful book, the colors on the cover are so appealing. I'm figuring you will do something very amazing with those patterns.


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
