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.
Linking up with Sunday Stash at Molli Sparkles.
