Sunday Stash

I splurged a little and bought a fat quarter pack of Honor Roll, a recent line by Anna Maria Horner.  This line was inspired by her Great Grandmothers handkerchiefs, and I do believe that that is what I love above it.  The prints are a mixture of florals, geometrics, and whimsy little prints and remind me of prints in my grandmother’s quilts.

I absolutely adore the vintage florals and the starlings.  I haven’t nailed down a plan for this line yet, but I am leaning towards making a quilt for snuggling on lazy Sunday afternoons.  They read more traditional to me than what I’m typically drawn towards, but I am expanding my horizons.

I found this fat quarter bundle of Honor Roll on Massdrop for a great price.  They are able to order in larger quantities and therefore offer a product at a discounted price assuming they have a confirmed number of items sold. They are currently offering another fat quarter bundle called A Feather in Your Quilt by Birch Organics that are adorable.  Ohhhh!  Should I or shouldn’t I?

I am also taking an online class on Crafsy.  It is a machine applique class with Wendy Butler Berns.  I have done quite a few applique quilts already, but was looking to learn something new.  Although her book is out of print, I was able to find a used copy on Amazon.  In the next week, I plan to start a quilt using her technique.  I am challenged by it, but am excited about the possibility of how it will turn out.  I likely won’t show it to you until it is finished and delivered.  But, it will be different than anything I have ever done, which both scares and excites me at the same time.DSC_0170
