This is the fabric pull for my new projects. I bought some great Michael Miller fabric called "Yoga Monkey" to make a bag for my mat.
After it came, I decided I needed a quilt, too. I'm using a pattern by Janine Burke called Gemini. She is one of the designers for a great site called Blue Underground Studios. Their sample quilts make wonderfully strong color statements and they seem to love scrappy quilts as much as I do. Their patterns, while based firmly on tradition, have a great modern feel largely due to their fabric choices.
There will be 60 different fabrics in this quilt--all from my stash.
This is a little bonus shot of the safety pin fabric pennants. All of the photos today were taken with my newish camera. I decided I'm just going to make myself use it and try to get better. I'm still not thrilled with the focus, but I'll keep trying. It also likes natural light better than artificial. The colors are really off. Back to the manual....
