Blue fabric II

It's here !!!! Yeah ... (a dancing Lucy)
I bet you can all guess what I will be doing today :-)

I don't receive only my blue fabric. The postman delivered two parcels. Kathie sent me a gorgeous pattern from Jeana Kimball, some beautiful fabrics and lovely needles, also from Jeana.

Ooo what a beautiful day !!

sew lucy, SEW! :o)


Kathie said...

I LOVE this pattern and can't wait to start making it AFTER we finish this other quilt though!
I know how much you love Jeana's needles like i do and of course the fabric had to be used to protect the needles so they didn't get damaged :)
glad the blue fabric arrived now sew the day away!

pamina said...

about these needles, is there something speciak because I don't know them?

Yeah!!!! You have been so patient. Now you can sew until you can't sew anymore. I better get going, my reprieve is over now that your fabric is here. Kathie is nearly done, Pamina is 1/4 done and you now have the 'blue'. I better go sew some seams!

Oh, that fabric is scrumptious.
In your hands Lucy, it will be something beautiful. Can't wait to see what you do with it all.
Dancing with you!

Off to find that magazine, just looked thru the pics on their website and see lots of inspiration. You make a good haul today with the fabric and the gifts. I posted a snowy mountain pic for you.

Love everything Lucy, it will be a spectacular quilt.

May I ask which needle you hand quilt with?? The size 11 Betweens or the Sharps. Those are tiny needles! Yikes

Lucy - I'm a regular lurker to your blog. I just love seeing what you are doing! I can't wait to see this latest project. Please be sure to include work in progress pictures!

I just stumbled on your blog and it is so charming! I love the photographs and the quilts and, oh, just all of it! I am a quilter myself--I love to work with vintage and reproduction 1920s to '40s fabrics, and I love to hand quilt. And I love antiques! I taught my sister to quilt, and now we both love to do it, but we also have very young children and can't often find the time!

Anyway, thanks so much for putting together such a beautiful blog. I will look forward to checking out your new projects!

I love the Jeana Kimball Autumn pattern. I took a class from her here in Ohio last summer. She had this quilt hanging up on the wall. Thanks for showing it here. I had forgotten how much I liked the pattern, I may have to order it to add to my "to do" list.
