When I received this issue of McCall's quilting Magazine in the mail & saw this quilt on the cover designed by Lissa Alexander, I was in love. I knew I just had to make this quilt for our bed. The colors are so romantic, & would go in out bedroom perfectly.
Isn't is so beautiful? The photo doesn't show the soft pinks & blues very well, I am not much of a photographer, but I am sure you get the idea. Dont' worry, I'll be posting photos of my quilt when I get it finished. Or should I say, I will have Gregg take a photo for me to do it justice. Just need to finish up a few swap projects I signed up for, then I can start my beauty.
Now I told myself I could probably find similar fabrics in my stash & not have to buy any. Well when my Hubby & I took a trip down to see my Mother, He took me into this wonderful quilt shop in Clovis CA, called Quilter's Paradise. I have shopped online from them, but have never made it to their store. Well, I must say it truly was Paradise. Wonderful staff, walls of fabric, lots of patterns. I was in heaven.
My darling husband snapped this photo as we were leaving, bad hair day I know because it was SO HOT that day! Only thing a girl could do was to put a head band on.
Look what I found while in the store! Yep, its the fabrics used in the Enduring Elegance quilt, all in one wonderful tower. Well, it came home with me & I have everything ready to start my new project. I know what you are thinking, what happened to using your stash? Well, I will pull extra fabrics from my stash because I'm going to make it a little bigger to fit our bed. There, saved. hehehe
I found more treasures on that day, but will save those to share with you on another day.
