New Fabric

Early in September I was asked if I would like to use some new fabric being released at Market in Houston, and I happily said yes. This large envelope then arrived and inside

were these beautiful fabrics.
 This is part of the first range of fabrics from Mary Fons called Small Wonders,
 for Springs Creative.
After deciding what to make I set to and did some cutting. Can you see the little elephants on the white  and the little elephants, camels and palm trees on the navy. 
and this is what I made. ( Yes I know, another bag but you also know I love making bags. )

Here is the inside pocket - I did manage to use all the fabrics.
Tah - Dah.
As market was at the beginning of the week this fabric range is now available and will be in the shops soon.

Spring sewing time.

I finished my Country Roads mystery quilt by Lori of Humble Quilts blog. It's a great small quilt and I enjoyed making it.

Week 38 of Time Warp Stars and this is my Asian-style and Black & Grey Stars.

Week 39 Claret Red Stars.

Week 36 was Lancaster blue and Greek Keys. I made the blue stars but only found fabric in my stash with Greek Keys yesterday. I didn't think I had any, but I'm finding I'm looking at my fabrics in more detail now.

This weeks stars are cut but not sewn yet, I'm still busy stitching Sue Spargo's BOM 2015.
It will be revealed when it is finished. Just two more months to go.

A little bit of everthing.

To start with my Cross blocks set on point and finished. The background fabric is a light grey
with  pinhead dots in several colours.
Next my Under the Cherry Tree with a couple of extra dots. What a difference that makes.

My 2nd Lancaster Blue star with fabric from a friend.

and my second Chocolate and Blue. It's dark brown on this fabric and really lovely.
Another gift from a friend.  
I took part in an online Autumn swap and this is the small quilt I received.
Isn't it wonderful. Thank you Dixie.
And continuing the online theme. This is the mystery Doll quilt from Lori,
at Humble Quilts on Facebook. Like all the patterns she shares, it is another lovely one.
I just need to quilt and bind it now.
