Last night I finished cutting the pieces for Anna Maria Horner's Love Letters quilt.
I'm so excited about this quilt. For one, the winter is such an inviting time for quilt making. (Yes, even here in Texas!) More importantly, I absolutely adore Anna Maria's fabrics and am loving her newest line, Innocent Crush. When I received the fabrics in the mail, I was mesmerized. They are even better than the pictures. I'm adding a bit from her velveteen line to give the quilt some added dimension and pop.
At the start of the year, Dan and I worked on a different, easy project together. I was taking down my 2010 Nikki McClure calendar.
I fell in love with her artwork and didn't want to throw it away. So we cut out out our favorite images, glued them onto card stock, and gave them a new life as cards. Dan offered to help me with the cutting because, despite all of my time sewing, I still can't seem to cut a perfectly straight line. Thank goodness I have my rotary cutter for fabrics!
I was happy with the results and look forward to sharing her beautiful artwork with others.
