Preparing for Quilt Market

"Brave Girl" is 18" wide by 33" high.  The girls will be my free pattern through Hoffman Fabrics for this line of fabric!  So exciting!   Be patient, the piece just got finished, and instructions are done, it will be up on the site soon.

Detail of Brave Girl. 
This has been so fun to use the fabrics in a variety of ways.  Here are my girls, like paper dolls, because my whole theme for my booth is going to be this shape.  I can't wait for it all to come together.  I'm not ready yet, but by Monday, my vision is going to come to life.

"Bold Girl" is 18" wide by 33" high.  These two girls are heart and soul sisters, just like the name of the fabric line with Hoffman Fabrics.  I just love those swirls - they come in royal blue, yellow and purple and the design was hand drawn - it has little stitches in it.

'Dream Big' is 19-1/2 x 23-1/2 - Dream big to achieve what you want in life to be all that you can be - olympian, artist, senator, activist, vet, dentist, doctor, inventor, engineer, just to name a few!  Girl Power and Empowerment!

"Circle Play" is 26-1/2" square.  This quilt uses the funky squares from each color way and a black and white stripe by Hoffman Fabrics.  I love the flow of this piece and the illusion that the thin strips of stripes creates.  The circles floating in and out of the squares.  A nine patch gone wild, for sure. The ultimate, to be able to create some cute, fun and totally abstract quilts from the same line!

Friendship Circles made with Sizzix 9-1/2 round dies for the Big Shot Pro machine.  This quilt is far from done, but I will post it when it's finished.  I love this one so much.

Girl mix up.  I cut the squares apart and put the girls back together another way.  Not sure that this one will make it to market, but it was fun to play around with it.

Playing around with circles, dies from Sizzix.  This might happen in the 11th hour, but not right now.  I do love the illusion that these circles could create, if the right fabrics were used.  I just need more time to explore, which I am sure will be after Market and Festival.

My BERNINA 750QE has been quilting up a storm!

Here is how the friendship circle quilt is shaping up.  It's on my design table.  My entire design table has a Holy Cow Goddess Sheet on it.  I have another one to Mistyfuse one yard cuts of fabric, in one fell swoop.  It has become one of my most favorite tools in the studio.

The holding area for things going to Quilt Market.  Several pieces on the design wall.
Some of my friends have been helping me too, so my next post will be all about those pieces, which are truly amazing works of art, like the aprons on the wall. Onward we go!
