Seeing Red

I love vintage, like lots of folks out there. I haven't had much luck with the thrifting or the garage sale, but there are a lot of nice antique stores around. I found this little tray at the Blue Door here in town, quite nice. On the same day it arrived, my box of goodies from my Minnesota trip arrived, bringing my red dot Fire King mug and a little cherry glass I found shopping with my cousin Linda. I plopped them all down on my cutting table with my latest fabric purchse, Moda's Picket Fence, and it all looked so nice together, I figured I'd take a little photo.

Inspiration can come from so many places, the colors on the old decal look like a lovely color combination for a quilt. Can't start that right now, so I'll leave the tray there to remind me of what I'd like to do when I'm done with my quilt sample. I have the binding on, just need to get that hand work done. The little quilt is a sample for a kit we're putting together at the shop for the Quilting in the Garden show. When that's done, I have one other project to finish the blocks for.. and oh, that's right, I need to finish machine quilting my sister's quilt. I'm determined to get better about starting things and starting more things and not finishing.. sigh.

But in the meantime, coffee, out back with the birds.

Yes the Moda fabric is their new Picket Fences line. I love the vintage look of their stuff. You're in Australia right? I've met people from AU at International Quilt Market before. From looking at the Australian Quilt Magazines, I see you get a lot of the same fabrics, but also have other lovelies I've never seen before!

I must say, I love all your mentions of coffee in your blog. Here I am reading it, not having had a thought of coffee (6:30 am), and now I'm just burning for a cup. I love your finds, especially the fireking mug.
