W.i.P Wednesday: More Precious than Rubies


So I'm pretty sure I don't have to tell you about the My Precious QAL 'cause everybody is doing it!  It's actually been my goal this year to finally use my favorite fabrics that I've been hoarding saving.  I'm off to a pretty good start!  I used my beloved Anna Griffin Riley for my ruffled argyle quilt, finally chopped up my Verna jellyroll to make this criss-cross quilt AND pulled some Little Folks voile to make these bound edge napkins.  I've been giving a lot of thought to which of my pretties to use next. 

I'm a huge huge Tula Pink fan!  I still have a Neptune layer cake squirreled away along with some yardage. I have already made two Neptune quilts (someday I'm going to take these out for a decent photo shoot!) but I feel like the best is yet to come.  Hushabye?  I made this with the pink & brown but that aqua is calling to me; )
I also have an idea for this stack of Heather Ross Mendocino I pulled together but it seems like everyone is using this one and I'm holding out in hopes I'll "find" some of the pinks.

I decided to dig a little deeper: Tanya Whalen, Heather Bailey, Sweetwater Sunkissed, more Heather Ross...  Hello my name is Alice and I'm a fabric addict:-)

But then I opened my Sis Boom bin.  Yes, I have an entire bin full of these fabulous Jennifer Paganelli prints spanning many of her collections and I have yet to make a single quilt with any of them.  This is definitely a reason to break into these. 

It's time to get chopping: )  I'm so excited to be starting this one!

  1. Holy cow you have a lot of fabric! I love the Sis Boom. You can't go wrong!

  2. Congratulations! I really need to do this as well.

  3. Great choice! I know how much you adore J Pag!

  4. I am drooling over your fabrics! I LOVE the same ones. And I've also been hoarding a lot of the Paganelli prints as well. You are making a wise decision by cutting into them; now let's see if I can do the same. : )
