The Thrill of the Pull


What's your favorite part of the quilting process? For me, hands down it's pulling fabrics for a new project. I've always been drawn to intriguing patterns and strong colors, and thinking about how fabrics might mix, match, and compliment each other... well, you just can't get any better than that in my book!


I've had this vibrant little stack of fabric in my head now for months! I've always loved a rich jewel tone palette, and once I had seen this quilt, I knew I had to embrace it. Of course, I had to go pretty heavy on the green tones. Let's just say that you will be seeing a lot of these snippits sewn into several upcoming projects!


Without giving everything away, let me just say that these are the colors that I've picked for my bee blocks, which is one of my four secret projects in the works right now. I won't be able to hold it much longer, and get to share next week!


if you're thinking right now... yeah, yeah, nice fabric stack, but show me something made with these jewels, then I'm afraid all I can leave you with is a small side project that I will tell more about later... it really has it's own story too.



Linking up this week to Let's Bee Social.

  5. Can't wait to see your projects. Those fabric colours are divine, I have decided I am not a pastel fan, bright jewel tones all the way for me.

  9. Well, you do not only love it, you are good at it :)

    For myself I think I don't have A favorite part. It depends on the mood of the day: Sometimes pulling fabric, sometimes cutting, sometimes sewing. I think just my least favorite is not changing...

    Looking forward to seeing your bee quilt come together!
