Delicious New Fabric

Isn't it a wonderful feeling to have new fabric!  Not all the fabric in the picture below is new but some of it is.  I have pulled pieces from stash to go along with some newly purchased fabric.  I have intentions of using  the selection for the "Caswell" quilt pattern.  I have had the pattern for a while.  I missed out on the first round in Blogland when so many were making their blocks.  Now, there is another go round and I am on the band wagon.......I hope.


The pattern can be viewed and purchased at Sentimental Stitches.  There are other websites that have the pattern available.  This is just one that I know of without searching others out.  I purchased mine at Common Threads but I don't find it available there any longer.  I need some more pinks and reds for variety.  And I am thinking about whether I want to use two background fabrics or one.  I am waiting on one more package of fabric to arrive but there isn't going to be much in it to add to what I have already have out in this mix.

Looking forward to another quilt project.
Karen

Oh it will be fun to watch you work on this. I've seen some others making it here and there and wasn't sure where it came from / nice to see the whole quilt over at the SS link! :)

Very nice selection of reproductions. So far I have been a good girl - only ordered some 108" wide backing fabric yesterday - still trying to finish up the Basket quilt!

Karen said...

It's going to be wonderful and I look forward to the journey.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting.

The colors are great that you have pulled/purchased so far. Can't wait to see how the blocks turn out.

The applique quilt I am working on is mostly brights. Not usually my entire color pallet but I like the way things are turning out so far.
