stamping and swooning

Sounds kind of crazy, right? Well, let me explain.  I finally mailed out all but one of my handprinted fabric pieces.  I decided to switch it up and try another design, this time with the help of my daughter, Natalie.  Of course I feel like a crazy mom ripping off my children’s drawings to make stuff with, but when I saw her sweet little flower drawing I knew it had to be made into a stamp.  Hoping tonight I can test it out on fabric.

And I’m sure you might already know about Katy hosting a swoon-along using Camielle’s (of Simplify and fabulous fabric designer for Moda)  Swoon quilt pattern.  I finally feel committed to making it for a very very special person in my life, whom I’m going to keep secret until I finish it and give it away!  Ever since I saw Miscellany by Julia Rothman for Cloud 9 I just kept thinking – this person will love love this fabric, it’s so HER.  So anyway, I’ve been feeling the quilting urge and when I saw Katy’s post, I had already been dreaming up using Swoon.

Here’s my stack, might need some tweaking here or there, I’m waiting for a few missing fat quarters that I ordered once I realized I ‘had’ to have them, but maybe I don’t need them after all?  The rest came from my very large toppling stash, which I’m thinking might need a little destash one of these days.

Happy friday and hope you have a fun and creative weekend.

    that is going to be one seriously amazing quilt! look forward to seeing what you come up with using that sweet little stamp.

  17. Kim says:

    They are really, really good colours. And there is no such thing as too much fabric. In fact, I do believe that ‘destashing’ may very well be a criminal offence.

  18. Lindsay says:

    Beautiful color combination! Wish I could buy that exact bundle. Might have to learn to quilt someday.

    Love your fabric printing, and you’ll just have to give your daughter a bit of the profits if you ‘spoonflower’ your print! I would love to print on fabric.. but looking at my pile of TO DO sewing… I don’t think so. (we won’t even go into updating my blog!) And I got SWOONED too… trying to figure out the last pair of fabrics, and then to decide the background color! How do we get drawn in all these thing?
    Look forward to seeing your SWOON too!

    Lol, sounds like you’re starring in some Victorian melodrama with your stamping and swooning, maybe even a little Jane Austen-esque :oD Love the stack of fabric though

  21. Her little flower drawing turned out really well as a stamp. I like the fabrics you put together for your swoon 🙂

  22. Lily says:

    wow! Gorgeous colors. I love the stripes on top – is it shot cotton?
