Spring Market Blues

Like many of you, I am wanting to be in Pittsburgh this weekend. To cure my "Spring Market Blues" I have taken Lissa Alexander's advice and have been busy sewing. Here's a preview of some future patterns.

First, I have a partial stack of half square triangles from Fig Tree Quilts new line Mill House Inn. I love the depth of color in this line.

Here is another line I have been fun playing with, Aster Manor by Three Sisters. I love that the pink and brown combination are still around. Luscious!

The rectangles on top are for a pieced border. I don't usually do pieced borders, but this one is turning out pretty fun.

Here's to wonderful fabric and the therapeutic nature of sewing!

I so wanted to be there! I too spent many hours as Lissa instructed sewing my little out. Ahhhh. Sewing is good, Market is always better. Now I can't wait for HOUSTON!!!

Was fun seeing you at HMQS Konda-thanks for the printer info. I will email you with more questions soon.
Love ya

Look at you and your 'sneak peeks'! Looks like fun stuff coming along. I can't wait to see what you do with Astor Manor. I just LOVE that fabric.
BTW- I got your book for you!

So are you planning on going to Fall Market? We'll have to chat. I can't decide if I'm going to try and go or if I'll even be able to. Call me whenever you want!
