Working From The Book

I love quilting books.  I have not actually made anything from the 32 books on my shelf, I just love looking at them.  So many lovely quilts!

So a goal I set for sewing this year is to actually work from the books that I have purchased.  I know a strange concept, but I am going to try.  So first book I selected is Quilting Modern by Jacquie Gering & Katie Pederson.  Lots of lovely eye candy in this book.  I am going to make the quilt called SuperNova.

I am using Browns and Blues with Kona Snow for the background of my quilt.  My focal fabric will be the Brush Bear by Sarah Watts. 

This is the fabric I have selected from my stash:
  • Kona Snow (not shown in picture)
  • Pure Organic Aqua
  • Blue/Gray/Tan Plaid print from Joann Fabric
  • Daybreak Brown by Heidi Grace for Joann Fabric
  • Blue Rounded Squares with small blue/green square for Joann Fabric
  • Brush Bear in Taupe by Sarah Watts for Blend
  • Woodland #9617-330 (Blue) by Lori Mason for RJR Fabric
  • Small Pebbles Tan Tonal print by Classic Cottons
  • Kona Navy
  • Crosshatch Sketch in Aqua (#FUN-C8224) Timeless Treasures
  • Pebbles Tan Tonal for Joann Fabric
  • Flowers Brown Tonal for Joann Fabric
  • Dark Brown Tonal by Jinny Beyer for RJR Fabrics



Now that the fabric is selected it is time to get to work cutting, pressing and sewing.  Check back to see my progress.  


Cheers,
