Sneak Peak

I know, I know... I've been neglecting my dear blog, (and most everyone else's, I'm afraid) but with good reason... I am working hard to commit more time to sewing!


My little shop is sorely in need of new items, and instead of listing an occassional one or two items here and there, (as I am prone to do) I thought this time I'd like to update with a whole batch of new work, (hopefully sometime in February). Until then, here's a little sneak peak at a few of the scrap inspired art quilts I've been creating.

In other news, the latest issue of the e-zine Fat Quarterly is now out.


This issue is all about solids, and I'm delighted to have been asked to contribute an article on how I got interested in using solid fabrics, and why I love them! You can go here to see a sneak peek of the issue and find out how to order your own copy. (It's easy... you can even order right from their etsy site!)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

So bright and refreshing! Such a nice thing to see mid winter!

I am just loving your newest creations!! The colors are fabulous!!

Lovely scrappy projects! I downloaded FQ yesterday, and really enjoyed your article. One of my 2011 goals is to use more solids, so this issue is right on target. Love your hand-quilting, too, BTW.

I'm always so grateful when I come across an apologetic blog post from an artist that I respect and admire (that's YOU) because it is salve for my own blogger's neglect.

I love your new scrappy work, and I can't wait to read your article!

I can't think of a better reason to neglect your blog...such a stunning quilt.

Thanks so much for taking part in FQ x

I love the bright colors! Did you use a 12 wt thread to quilt it? I love how the thread stands out.

Jackie said...

Lovely work and a good idea to list in batches. I just get tired of the listing and photography before I finish. At least you can 'copy' items now.

Kim said...

Oh I know so little time so many things to divert our attention.......lovely pieces, can't wait to see them all :0)

Happy Sewing

Christine said...

Well what you have 'sneak peaked' us looks amazing. I can't wait to see the rest. I just adore your use of color and outside-the-box patterns.

Cheryl Arkison said...

I was happy to see us both in there!

As I mentioned on Flikr, love these! Congrats on being in the magazine too! All of your work is SO worth waiting for, good things take time.

Wow, I'm loving your new batch of quilts! Thanks for the sneak preview.

Stephanie said...

It's easy to see why your projects are snatched up so quickly. I love the curvy quilting and the vibrant blue.

Angela said...

I agree, there is no reason to be blogging when you can be making those beautiful pieces!

Diane J. Evans said...

LOVE these new quilts! The colors really speak to me, and your work is exquisite, as always. Thanks for sharing such joyous creations in the middle of this lousy winter -- they inspire and bring smiles!

Candied Fabrics said...

Ooh! Love these! Is that sulky blendable thread I spy? one of my faves!...The curvy quilting looks great (although the sraight lines are awesome too!)

I just went and bought that mag - it looks like a grand one, and if you're in it, well they have awesome taste! ;-)

colorific said...

The colors are electric! Love it!

Hey Harriet said...

Wow! These are looking great! You've been neglecting your blog for good reason! I've had to neglect blogging/blog visiting lately also, so I perfectly understand the need to just step away from it sometimes.

Hey thanks so much Vic for the hugs! I didn't mention the passing of Sophie on my blog because I just didn't know how to at the time. And then as time passed and I finally felt together enough to mention it, it seemed as though too much time had passed so I never posted about it. I'm imagining Soph somewhere special right now and she's hooked up with Mo and they're getting up to all sorts of fun mischief together :) xo

XUE said...

incredible colours, Vic! Hope to see your fabulous quilts up close in person one day so please come visit & bring your work too! Warm wishes from Dubai !

Colleen said...

I love your quilting, especially that wavey line. It looks son nice and modern.
