On the Horizon

It's been well over a year ago when I purchased a tower of FQ's from Minick & Simpsons line Clermont Farms. Then my friend Louise and I fell down the hole of this pattern.  I love the funky red horses, the mix of techniques and of course, all the red in this quilt.


I purchased a few cuts from their new collection of creams and blues to add into the mix, but it still needed some punching up.

Now I've got these 6 more reds to add into the mix and I'm ready to start.  As soon as I finish a few other things.
What's on your list of projects you want to start?

I am going to love your quilt. I have looked at this pattern a couple dozen times. You have made some good color choices. The horse is my favorite thing on the quilt.

This will be beautiful. I think I have a jelly roll of that line.
I want to start a little wool applique mini that I ordered when I took a class from Lisa Bongean in January. It finally came and I am making myself finish off a few things before I dig in.

My list is too long to list...all my deadlines are due in about 4 weeks and we have a vacation in the middle! LOL. I'll be hoping to enjoy some stitching while on vacation!! Your new project will be lovely. Do you like hand appliqué or machine appliqué?

I have so many already started...groan!! But I really want to make some progress on my Beautiful Life quilt by Karen Mowrey. Love the fabrics you have chosen!

Thanks for the "noodge" Sharon, I needed that!
I am looking forward to working on our "Sac" quilt perhaps late spring/early summer??

I can't wait to follow your progress on this quilt. I've admired the pattern for some time now. Awesome fabric collection you've gathered - I love your choices.

Great quilt, I've never seen this pattern before. And your fabrics are just yummy. Of course, I love all the M & S fabrics.

My projects are too many to even think about! I'm trying to finish a few before I jump into something else. Right, who am I fooling? hahaha!

I've never seen the pattern before either but it looks like a great sampler. You'll have fun with it and it'll be fun watching your progress.

I bought the patterns a year ago for this quilt and started block one! Then several other projects kept overwhelming me, but mine is back out to begin again. If you need another gal to sew along with, let me know. I could use the inspiration and accountability to keep me moving on it.

Just found your blog through bloglovin...new to it...but thought I better get on with it since Foogle Reader is retiring. Great blog!
