Vintage Primaries

It is so nice to be sewing and having time to sew. I finally took out all of my quilting stuff, and spread out all over my kitchen table.



There seem to be a abundance of babies being born to many of my friends...close and far away. So i started making the fabric stacks to see what i could come up with.




My stash of vintage reproduction fabrics did not disappoint me. I was able to make almost two so far form what i have in my stash! A little stash busting is good for the fabric closet!




I seem to be being drawn to very primary bold colors at the moment. Here is a little sneaky peak of what i am working with right now. I hope that the new owners of these quilts will like them as much as i do.




Aren't scrap piles so pretty?

It is a small visual reminder to me of the work i am getting done. It feels good to be excited about a project again...looking forward to how it grows and changes with each step. Maybe tomorrow i will have a few more pictures to share of the second top.

I love that feeling of having time to craft and sew and them actually hold the finished result. I'm currently in knit mode today for a friend's new baby, too. There are a lot of babies entering the world soon- hooray!!!

I love the colors in the sneak peak. Primary colors are always a good choice :)

I love the primary fabrics you're using! I'm also drawn to those fabrics, and it's fun to see them in fabrics all set to be sewn!

Lovely fabrics Leslie! I particularly like the second stack. Always feels good to make something entirely from your stash doesn't it
