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  (I once saved a favorite fabric so long it went out of date and I gave it away without using it.)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!

Signed,

The Happy Homemaker,

Lori

Reporting from Minnesota Quilt Show

Lion King, Cherrywood Challenge

Good Morning, Quilters!

I am teaching at the Minnesota Quilt Show in Duluth, Minnesota–and having a great time!  I’ve met a lot of new people, viewed rooms full of gorgeous quilts and am allowed to talk about my favorite subject for four straight days in the BERNINA classroom!  Pinch me!

Lion King, Cherrywood Challenge

Today–a few pictures from the Cherrywood Lion King Challenge exhibit.

Each quilt is just 20 x 20 inches and as you can see, they are spectacular!!!

The next challenge is a Van Gogh challenge!! I can’t wait to see it…

In the mean time, I treated myself to some of their gorgeous hand dyed fabric.

I’m not sure I will ever be able to cut them up.

I will probably put the stack on my nightstand and pet it every night.

I know YOU know what I’m talking about….

Do YOU ever buy fabric that is just to pretty to put a rotary cutter to?

Happy Quilting!

I’ll be back next week renewed and ready to share!

Lori
