I like to think that I always keep my promises. So you can count this one as kept!! My sister-in-law recently went to the Quilter's Heritage Celebration in Lancaster. I usually go but haven't been in the last couple of years due to unforeseen circumstances. (very sad :( face). Anyway, Cherrywood Fabrics is always there as they are one of the sponsors. So as any good quilter would do that desperately needs more fabric, I called her on her cell begging her to pick me up some of their wonderful hand dyed fabrics. They are seriously wonderful and they look like suede...NO LIE!! If you have never seen them before you have to go to there website by clicking here. Anyway, here is a picture of what she picked up for me.
They also now have dyed thread to match some of their color gradations. So of course, I asked her to pick up some of the thread too. She it sitting on top of the fabric...YUMMY!
Okay, so once I had this fabric in my hot little hands, I promptly washed it up and started cutting away. Here are the results. I made this block first....
Then this block was made second....
Then I put the blocks together and here are the current results. Keep in mind this quilt is not yet finished. I have to add a piano keys type border yet.
Here you can see Rolo inspecting my work and approving! By the way, these last 2 pictures of the fabric are a better depiction of their true colors.
She also picked me up an extra surprise from The Old Country Store. They are really fun, aren't they?
One other order of business, I have been tagged by both Jen of Sew and Sox and Jess of Heads Carolina and Tails California. I have not forgotten about this and I am planning a post dedicated just to this. I just haven't thought of what to post. I know you may think this is a lame excuse, but I have only come up with 2 things. I promise I will post it within the next week...honest!! So be sure to check back
