A New Project-Sneak Peek

Quilting, Lori Kennedy, Hand DyeGood Morning, Quilters!

I recently splurged on a collection of hand dyed fabric from Cherrywood Fabrics

They are sooooo pretty–the kind you don’t even want to cut!

But I’ve learned my lesson about “saving fabrics”.  (I once saved a favorite fabric so long it went out of date and I gave it away without using it.)

I decided to break out the hand dyes for a new project.

I am working on Jacquelynne Steve’s (Art of the Home) block of the month blog hop.

The Patterns are FREE and available August 7…but YOU can sign up now!

I plan to free motion quilt the houses on the center squares (instead of appliqué), so I am changed the color way to include a medium blue as the center square–but more on that in August…

If YOU are interested stitching along, sign up to get the patterns each month.  There will be several quilt bloggers show variations of the “I Love Home” pattern.

It’s a great chance to try a few new techniques.

Hope YOU will join us!


The Happy Homemaker,
