Sneak Peak/Exclusively Quilters

Last week I received some brand new fabrics from Exclusively Quilters fabric company...fabrics that haven't hit the market yet! They had asked if I would stitch up my Mod Girl Purse Pattern using their Urban Blooms line of fabrics. I had so much fun sewing with this new line, I mean.....who wouldn't? It is so cheerful and happy and the minute I saw the fabrics they just sort of  "told me" exactly how I should arrange each piece in the pattern! Ok, so it wasn't an audible voice but the fabrics spoke nonetheless! hee hee!

They sent enough fabric that I was actually able to make an apron using my pattern  My "Charm"ing Apron as well. It is reversible with the "back" side being pink with a black pocket. Exclusively Quilters also sent the cutest black metallic ric rac. I hadn't seen the metallic before but it was fun to use and really spiced up the look of the purse and apron!
 You can see better pics of these new fabrics on the Exclusively Quilter's/Classic Cottons website here. And if you are attending Quilt Market in May in Kansas City, visit their booth and see all the fun new fabrics they will be showing! You'll see this purse and apron there too!!

Black and White

Black and white, the ultimate contrast. Those colors together always seem to catch my eye.

I love buying and sewing with charm packs because they are so well coordinated with all the fabrics in a whole line. I have added a bib to my reversible apron pattern and am finishing writing it. It will be called  My Full "Charm"-ing Apron pattern. (The half-apron pattern called  My "Charm"-ing Apron is available by clicking on my side-bar.) Sometimes the "back" side of the apron is not as much fun as the front but I get a kick out of both sides of this apron!  This black and white cutie is heading over to my Etsy Shop for sale!!
You can find her here!
