indelible pow wow

It's been incredibly crazy busy around here in the last few days, but sadly none of it involved any sewing. You see, we bought a new house (very, very excited about that) and quickly found out moving is a lot of hard work, the stuff seems to multiply every time I look away, and boxes are not willing to pack and unpack themselves :(

Today though, I wanted to share an Indelible Pow Wow lap quilt I managed to finish right before our move.


I was happy and honored to be asked by Katarina Roccella (designer for Art Gallery Fabrics) to participate in a blog hop using her Indelible fabric line. I especially love all the beautifully saturated colors Katarina used in this collection - I even surprised myself at how much I liked these "not very me" colors :)


I've wanted to make another Pow Wow quilt for quite some time (I made one for my son's bed a while back) and Indelible seemed just the right fabric for this pattern so as soon as the fabric showed up in my mailbox I got to cutting. I love the feel of all Art Gallery fabrics - they seem to be thinner than other quilting cottons and have this amazingly beautiful drape that I absolutely adore.


I even used my long hoarded Anna Maria Horner voile for the backing. Heaven, I'm telling you, I must use voile more often to back my quilts.

Off I go now. Time to get back to turning our new house into a home.

Thanks for stopping by. Svetlana

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday.

  6. How very exciting Svetlana! Unpacking is such a lot of work, but so wonderful at the same time. It's nice to rediscover things, or view them differently because of the different setting. Your quilt is beautiful. I'm impressed that you finished it before moving!!

  19. What a pretty version of the pow wow quilt! For some reason I envision it as a kid's quilt, but this is certainly grown up. Very much my colors!!! Congrats on the big purchase and hope all the unpacking goes by quickly and smoothly!

    I saw Rita of red pepper quilts is teaching in Chicago. I wish I could go!!!!
