Quilts, coffee and sewing...

Quilts, coffee and sewing...

Quilts and coffee because it's cold... and okay, I like both.  Fabric and coffee?  Another favorite combination - though not mixed together unless you're doing some vintage-aging-staining-thing.

Let me start with the fabric - something I played with and am keeping around because it makes me think of Spring.

MIUT-Spring

The fabrics are from Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree & Co., Bespoke Blooms by Brenda Riddle, Little Ruby by Bonnie & Camille, Serenity by Amy Ellis, Little Miss Sunshine by Lella Boutique, Refresh by Sandy Gervais and an Essential Dot or two in there.

I just might have to make use of this in the coming month or two because there's going to be a whole lot of sewing- and making-quilts-along.

Did you know the Moda Bake Shop is celebrating their 7th Birthday - Anniversary?  They are!

And they're starting a wonderful quilt-along tomorrow.  It is based on the "Spell it With Moda" letters and quilt from a few years ago - but different.  Now that they're so grown-up, they're adding some new tricks to the repertoire.  It's going to be awesome.  (Don't tell anyone but I might have to quilt-along with this one since I missed getting the first one made.)

Wednesday - January 13th.  Moda Bake Shop!  Rumor has it that there might be some prizes along the way.

If you need convincing that making letter-blocks is a good idea...

A couple of us in the office are obsessed with this quilt made by Thelma Cupcake - aka "That Thelma".

I've told you about the All-In-A-Row Blog Hop that starts next week, right?

Fabrics?  Prairie by Corey Yoder, Meadow Bloom by April Rosenthal and Gooseberry by Lella Boutique.

The twenty-four Moda folks - dubbed the Moda All-Stars Plus One - will be hopping with the nice folks at Martingale - that starts Monday, January 18th.

Then there is a quilt-along starting with American Patchwork & Quilting, Quilts 'n More, and the folks at How To Sew.  I'll let you know about that one when I have a starting date and more details.  Busy busy, right?

If you're wondering how the coffee fits into all this - aside from having a cup of coffee while sewing...

And because quilters sometimes want a little treat after sometimes most of the time.  All of the time!

Coffee and fabric.

I had a plan... now I just need to figure out how to get to Osaka.

I need fabric and energy for all this sewing I'm going to be doing.

We're going to be doing, right?
