Footloose and Fancy Free.....

Ahhhhhhh the joys of piecing and finishing quilts! You know the feeing, don't you? I visited a favorite stationary store a week ago and saw some marvellous holiday cards with the focus around Seattle skyline. I thought how fun to create my own for family's Christmas cards and to use fabric in my stash. Above is my first play with the idea and it was so fun to create. I posted on Facebook and its reception was so encouraging and made me feel so good. A yummy feeling when someone outside of my heart and brain likes what I had envisioned....
This puppy is so long that I have a hard time capturing it on photo. Many different fabrics for the border and ready for quilting. What a riot of a quilt to create. Victoria's made-fabric concept has become my everyday go to and I am grateful for her influence on my work. Next week.....I get to thank her in person and I cannot stop dancing and shouting it from the rooftops, kinda like the girl in the Seattle quilt! So much love and joy I share in this part with you, Em

I really love the Seattle skyline. Your use of fabrics is just so amazing. Love it! I got to meet Victoria at Market last year. You will love her. You two will hit it off great. How is it you get to meet her? That's really neat. Wish I could be with you both!
