Good morning, friends! I have to start by thanking you profusely for the outpouring of support and advice you had for me on my sewing machine woes. I am so, SO grateful! I called Pfaff as per your suggestions, which led to a conversation (that Pfaff initiated) with my dealer. It sounds like my dealer and Pfaff may replace the machine. We'll see though - it's not finalized. I'm actually not going to Charlotte to address the problem today as my dealer is out of town. Should be able to find out more early February when he returns. I'll keep you posted!
Now let's talk about sewing!
This week I took over the living room. It was exciting to move that picture, slide away an armchair and tack up a big piece of Warm & Natural batting with little push pins. So easy. And so, so useful!
Although my temporary design wall seems large, here it is holding what turns out to be only a throw quilt. So, wow, a wall big enough for a queen-sized quilt would be truly gigantic! Let me tell you - I absolutely loved working with a design wall. It made what could have been a headache (using 6" blocks) totally fun. It was distracting at TV time though. I kept getting up to rearrange blocks, even during my favorite show. I'd make a switch and Brandon would remark, "ok....?" as in, what was the point of that? Probably, no point!
Earlier this week I got a little shipment of fabrics from Sew Modern to round out my collection of fabrics for Vintage Tangerine. They included several low value prints: (from top, left) Madrona Road - Wild Carrot in Tangerine; Architextures - Crosshatch in Grey; Flutter - Dream in Orange and Lizzy House - Jewels in Peach. I really wanted to use lots of light prints and textures in this quilt to create a not-so-saturated quilt, with a sunny, bright personality.
To keep it light, I tried to restrain the coral to little pops of color. I did use lots of the Flea Market Fancy orange bouquet print though, which is apparently one of my all time favorite prints. I decided to order more after using mine up on this quilt! That Flea Market Fancy is starting to disappear from shops... again.
Since you all seemed to really enjoy this collection of fabrics, I put together a Vintage Tangerine bundle at Sew Modern.
This 11-piece bundle is available while supplies last. Enjoy & have a great weekend all!
