Busy couple of weeks

Hi Everyone!

Memories of Provence sample fabric has arrived!  I returned from a shop owners retreat on Thursday night and my fabric arrived Thursday while I was gone.  After greeting Bill, Maple and Tillie (especially Tillie...she demands it!), I tore open the box.  I love it!








Friday, my friend and next door neighbor, Sandy came over to help sort and cut.  We worked on getting pieces cut for quilts, Block of the Month and a few fat quarters. 

Saturday, I cut out some quilts and Sunday, my friend Joyce came over to help me start piecing.  LeAnne is on the ready for quilting and I just have to keep working.  My goal is to get Block of the Month quilts done as soon as possible so that I may have samples for quilt shops, shows and Market. Here are some of the blocks that I've been working on for the black version.  I love them!
Block #1

Block #2

Block #3
Here is the finished "virtual quilt".  I am excited to see how it turns out in actual fabric.
 

More later this week with fabric updates!

The new fabric is gorgeous, especially those paisley prints! I love the look of your block of the month - can't wait to see more!

Is that one dot, NAVY on white or a light cream? I have looked for days for a piece of fabric like that where can I see it or buy?

Gorgeous fabric is right, Lisa! Wow, those prints are simply stunning. You hit it out of the park with this one Monique.
