I'm so proud to share with you some news about that fabric stack: the project I used those fabrics for is on the cover of the 2012 edition of International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene, available very soon in hard copy at your local bookstore and currently in stock at Pink Chalk Fabrics! A nice little stack from Interweave was waiting for me when I returned home from Sewing Summit; it was a great surprise to come home to.
This quilt has been a long time in the making, with my original sketch of the quilt drawn in my design notebook back in early 2011. It took me a long time to get around to making it, but I'm glad I waited, because I really love the fabrics I pulled together for this quilt. I love the way that I see a different shape or repeat pop out when I look at this quilt. I look forward to getting it home again some time after it travels to Houston for Quilt Market next week! If only I could go with it :)
