I’ll be in touch by email soon.  Thank you all for joining me here in this space, I hope you come back again to visit.   xo

A giveaway, did you hear that right?!  I think this might qualify my tiny little blog as a real grown-up blog… how did that happen?  Well, I’ll tell you how. There are a number of super creative and talented folks in my quilt guild, The East Bay Modern Quilters. One of these individuals happens to be Kim Andersson, the fine lady of i adore pattern, and creator of Good Hair Day fabric with Windham Fabrics.

I made a floor pouf for her from her exciting new fabric line, arriving in stores now.  It was a joy to play with her colors.  For me, there were a couple of unexpected pairings in her line, and they all got along together beautifully in the finished project. I loved stretching my color design muscles in a different direction.  The pouf has two large panels that were pieced, the top and bottom panel.

My biggest problem was deciding which panel should be the top because I loved them both so much. Kim said that’s a good problem to have – and really, she was right!  I used the Floor Pouf pattern from Anna Graham’s book Handmade Style.
