In the past week I've had some very fun surprises in my mail box. (I still love getting stuff in the mail.) First, Elizabeth Hartman's new book Modern Patchwork. As with everything Elizabeth does, this book is beautiful. The quilts, photos, color inspiration, and meticulous instructions. Gorgeous.
When I first started reading quilting blogs, Oh Fransson was a favorite. I love Elizabeth's eye for color and fabric combinations. Just looking at her quilts always inspires me and gets me in the mood to pull out fabric and try something new.
I love the Neighborhood quilt on the left. I want to play with those blocks. If you love modern quilting, then you will love this book. Gorgeous inspiration.Monaluna's newest upcoming collection, Fox Hollow. Oh my, words can not describe how much I love this collection. The drawings are so sweet and beautiful without being 'cutesy'. Same with the color palette.
crossweaves from Pink Castle Fabrics and they arrived as well. They are SO soft (and they are still on sale!) I bought red and white, apple, and aqua. (I think the red and white is all gone.) They have a subtle texture and are a nice alternative to other solids.
