I really did. I just went in for 3 patterns to add to my Elegant Garden that I am going to make. I let my oldest daughter talk me into babysitting Friday and Saturday (not sure you "babysit" a 12 year old, lol)and since I don't want to take my sewing machine with me I wanted some handwork to do. All of the patterns are available from Laundry Basket Quilts .
I am going to do this quilt in fossil ferns. I have been collecting fossil ferns a little at a time from The Cotton Club and now have fat quarters of all of them, and I always fall back on using them when I have to have a "special" color or whatever. Anyway, I have the whole enchilada color wise of them, and I think they will be gorgeous done in these patterns. I am using a fossil fern background for them.
Here are some of the colors in the fossil ferns, just to give you an example of what is available. And, I am using from stash! Yea!!
I was standing in the quilt store talking to one of the employees while another was hanging this quilt up. It is the Web Sampler Celebration quilt that is being done on the internet by 12 quilt stores. This quilt is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice, that's for sure. Even though I took these, it is difficult to see how pretty this quilt really is.
Cindy Lisa , Carol and I are going to do this one. Nicole is still on the fence. If you are going to do this sampler join us. I think 3 months should be ample time to finish it, which would give us until May 1.
