We've had so much rain this week that taking pics has been impossible. From the light levels you'd think it was November! So, instead of shots of stuff I'm doing, I thought I'd show some stuff I'm loving instead.
|Erin McMorris's Poppies and Posies from My EQ Boutique|
Did you know that Erin McMorris designs applique patterns for EQ? Me neither! But I love these Poppies and Posies and am itching to try out some applique because of them. You don't need to own the software to get the patterns, which is great because I don't. Ok, I do. I own EQ2 but have no idea where it is and it probably couldn't run on this computer even if I could figure out how to install it. I think it was on floppy!
|Michelle Yeo's Abeville County quilt pattern|
I'm also obsessing over Michelle Yeo's patterns lately. What is with the Australians being so talented? Michelle's patterns are based on antique quilts and are definitely not easy. But can you imagine her Abbeville County design done in bright, modern fabrics? Sure it would be challenging, but the result would be spectacular.
|the bottom line thread from Superior Threads|
And speaking of thread, I hope to get back to thread reviews next week. I haven't been doing much block piecing lately and it's easiest to figure out the amount of thread used when you're sewing blocks.
Have a great long weekend everyone, happy Canada Day and 4th of July,
