planning and plotting

The yellow, green, aqua, and gray color combo keeps me awake at night. It's been constantly on my mind since I made this fabric bucket. So I've put together this giant stack of fabric and hope to cut into it this weekend. 

At first I thought of doing a simple patchwork like I did in this quilt. But now I'm thinking triangles?!?! I'm pretty sure those tricky, pesky triangles will look amazing in this color scheme.

And now that the kids are back at school and go to bed at much more decent time, I'm looking forward to spending more time working on my Irish Chain quilt.

Oh, I so enjoy the slow, repetitive, meditative process of hand quilting.

Plus, these two ladies and our adorable creature are keeping me a company tonight. Aaaaah!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Svetlana


  1. The stack looks great! The hand-quilting is the best.. I love hand-quilting... It adds so much personal touches to the quilt!! Have a great weekend..

  2. Well you can never go wrong with aqua and gray!

  3. I just saw that Sense and Sensibility! It's lovely! Dan Stevens (Matthew from Downton Abbey) plays Edward Ferrars.

    Here's to kids in school and sleeping at a decent time! Mine starts back after labour day.

  4. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
    Have a great weekend

  5. I'm jealous in every way! Love that stack of color -- heavenly -- and that's one of my top ten favorite movies. Thankfully I have a husband who enjoys watching Jane Austen, so it's on our list of things to watch again soon. :)

  6. Oh yes, that's all going to look rather lovely! Hope you enjoyed your evening :o)

  7. You pick the best colours and fabrics!
