Next!

Thanks everyone for your support of my donations-for-tutorials idea!

I'm going to do a couple more tutorials and see how it goes.

I got out of work early today and I've been pulling fabric from my stash for a new quilt...
It's a quilt to feature this Civil Rights Toile which I recently purchased (because I'm MADLY IN LOVE with it).

This fabric is in stores now. I found it at Hancocks of Paducah and Fabricworm.

Anywhoodle, I think I'm going to need to paper piece for my little plan to work...which I don't think I've done before.  Any tips?

    1. I just might...it's actually a friend's discarded shirt that I picked up to maybe wear and maybe cut into...

  5. I'm supposed to show The girls how to paper piece. Maybe we have a sewing session soon.

  6. I have a dream that one day Stonewall will be considered a Civil Rights event worth representing on a toile fabric...

    But that Lincoln? Adorbs.

  9. I've been saving this post in my reader for months because I loved that toile - and then I stumbled upon it in person and took home three yards! I'll be looking to see what you do with it - thanks for making me aware of this awesome print.
