New Fabric

Here's what came for me in the mail yesterday - a beautiful bundle of fat quarters from my sister Margot Languedoc of The Pattern Basket.  This is her new fabric line called Butterfields and you can see it here on her blog.  I will be busy this weekend deciding what to make with this gorgeous fabric (maybe something with bunnies).

I think this fabric is my favourite.....

Well, maybe this one.....

Oh, nevermind, I love them all - thanks Margot!

I got lots of piecing done for the quilt on my design wall.  The center and the inner borders are pieced.  Just have to put together the stars and squares for the two additional outer borders.  I am making some progress......
and I did find time on the weekend to load a quilt on to my frame - another quilt top I finished years ago.  The pattern is in a book called "Romantic Quilts" which is a collection of quilts from Australian Patchwork and Quilting. I'm still deciding how I want to quilt it - I think lots of background fill around the heart appliques and in the sashings, but not sure yet what to do in the pink border.
