oo la la

i received my french general la petite ecole fabric.  i love it!  i immediately unwrapped the jelly roll to see all the beautiful fabrics...

this new quilt is for some friends who are getting married... and they are osu (as in 'the buckeyes of ohio state) grads.  the colors are scarlet & gray... so i am hoping that the colors have a hint of osu and the rest is just loveliness.

anywho, i immediately started cutting my pieces for the quilt.  there are a lot of little pieces...

i am excited to see it all put together! 

also, my daughter has decided to make a quilt as well!  hurray!  she ordered her fabric which arrived yesterday.  it is sitting in a box in my craft room... i want to open it soooo badly... but it is not mine.  she will be here on friday to start hers.  i know it is going to be beautiful.

now, off to bed to read 'water for elephants' on my nook.  :-)


  1. Love the fabric, Julie! This will be very special.

  2. Good Luck to your daughter in her first quilting project! hopefully she will end up as inspired to quilt as the rest of us.
