My First Post

I am trying another site for tracking my projects. I am anticipating my blogging abilities to grow in time. I want to share with others some of the things that I have been enjoying working on. But, first just a little background of what fuels my creative fire.

Textures. All kinds. I love fabric, yarn, and paper.

Colors. Rich earth tones or bright, vibrant color. It all depends on any given day or any given season.

I love to look for fabrics and yarn online but, seldom will I purchase anything there, except books or patterns. I have to feel and see the fibers first hand to know if it’s right for me. (in fact one of my best methods of therapy is to wander the shelves of fabric stores). Okay, truth be told, I love ironing my fabric pieces. Silly things like that make me happy.

Overtime I will post some of the past projects that I’ve made. For now I want to share my next big project.

Fabrics in waiting

There is enough fabric here for several small projects.

Part of this stash includes a panel that I purchased here at a quilt shop along with the black and gold piece at the top. The small quilt that I plan to make will be a keepsake for my oldest granddaughter of her birth place. I can hardly wait to get started working on it.

    Hey Robyn, congrats on the new blog! Stick with it, you’ll find you learn so much. 🙂 Those fabrics you’re working with look SO delicious, can’t wait to see what you make. 🙂 I love those asian inspired fabrics with the gold on them… What kind of piecing do you think you’ll go for?

    • Thanks Steph for the encouragement.
      I love the Asian fabrics. I almost hate the thought of cutting them up. Most of them came from Okinawa as my son and his family lived there for 3 years. They know how much I love fabric and send me a meter of all kinds of beautiful finds. I am planning on making a kimono paper pieced wall hanging for my granddaughter as she was born in Okinawa. I happened upon a class at a local fabric shop a few months ago and it was really fun. I have a few other projects to get off my list first.
      I love what you are doing! Maybe I will design patterns someday when I grow up…LOL! Thanks again
