Several months ago I stumbled across the I Want Her Stash club but unfortunitly the program was full so I got wait listed. Then, last week I got an email saying a few spots had opend up and I could join the program! With even more good news, they sent an email saying that their were a few June bundles left and if I wanted one to let them know. Count me in!
For each month you get 16 fat-quarters, chosen by that months designer plus a pattern.
This is the June bundle chosen by Alison Glass and I love it! I already had a few of the prints in the bundle which just hits home that this bundle is right up my alley. I don't know how I'll use these fabrics yet. I don't know if I'll put out prints and use them here and there or if I'll keep the bundle together and do a small project.
This is the July bundle chosen by Amy of Nana Company. The majority of these prints aren't ones I would pick out for myself. I do like the colors and I think it would make a cute baby quilt so I might set these aside for the next time I need a pink baby blanket.
Is it to soon to start counting down the days till next months?

I actually had this done last weekend but I had to get some better pictures
Here it is! All done at last!
This is my very first English Paper Piecing project and I think it turned out so well!
I'm so glad that 100 Billion Stars was willing to share the information to make this quilt!
I wanted to back the quilt with that beautiful Elizabeth print in all 3 colors!
My good friend Joyce Ritter did the quilting and she payed so much attention to detail! She is a rock star!
And I love striped bindings so I was super glad there was a stripe print in Elizabeth that matched my border print!
Im definitely enjoying cuddling with this quilt and just looking at all the fun little fussy cuts hidden inside!.

Here is Rosette Number 2 from the The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt Along. It is made from the Anna Maria Horner line Pretty Potent, except for the leopard print which is from her Field Study line. I would have been sharing it much sooner if I hadn't run out of the purple print with blue flowers and had to order more.
I'm really happy with this block and I'm glad to be making progress with the project! I can't wait till I have a few more blocks done and we can start to see it all come together!

I sure do hope you weren't holding your breath waiting to see my Tula Pink City Sampler,because I finished the top over a year ago and just not got it quilted. But the best things are worth waiting for, right?
I choose the Gridlock layout which makes a huge 90 x 90 quilt, and I completed it using only Tula Pink fabrics and solids (except for the white dotted background). I had a lot of fun piecing these blocks
It's quilted with a more modern Cathedral Window pattern.
I love making pieced quilt backs and it was fun to use some of the prints that are very large scale.
I also decided to do a rainbow binding since I couldn't imagine picking one print for this quilt, and at least it gave me some variation so hand stitching the binding wasn't so boring since the print kept changing.
As you can see, Zombie cat already has made his approval known.

It's finally done! It took me the better part of 3 weeks, but here is Rosette #1 for The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt Along. I really had fun making this! I loved pulling fabric and trying to find the perfect fussy cuts and the best repeats for the pattern. I've already started pulling fabric for the next Rosette. I don't know if I'll ever catch up, but I sure will try!
