Hello Quilting Friends! Welcome to Issue 9 of The Daydreams of Quilts Post. Today something came in the mail that I want to show you.
These are test swatches of my latest fabric designs available from my Spoonflower Shop. I just made these for my own fun but if anyone is interested in them they are available to purchase from Spoonflower. The first three are inspired by the construction workers working on some houses nearby. I have never seen anyone work so slowly! They are even walking slowly! It must be because they are on a government contract. I can see no other explanation. So I have hand drawn a turtle wearing a hard hat, a snail wearing a hard hat and tool belt and a sloth wearing a hard hat. The sloth is the foreman hanging out in the tree. ;) I thought these would be fun embroidery projects and they are already printed on fabric so you can start stitching them right away.

If you order a test swatch size they come with two of each on a swatch. I plan to make up a few kits with threads for my Etsy shop but if you are in the United States is would be cost effective to order directly from Spoonflower and if you order tonight they have free shipping for today only.

The fourth fabric is my Grandmother's handwriting from an old school notebook from her high school Home Economics class with notes about sewing, fabrics and fitting clothing.
Here is a bigger view of the test swatch. I took photos of the pages and put them side by side in a jpeg file. I think these will look so cool once cut up and sewn into a quilt. Of course, because it's my grandmother's handwriting from the 1940s it is more personal to me but the notes are about sewing and garment fitting and various types of fabrics I thought you might like this too.
My Jumping Framed Squares quilt pattern is now out in Make Modern. You can read a bit more about this bed sized quilt featuring framed fussy cut Heather Ross prints in this blog post. I hope you will get a chance to download a copy of issue 10 of Make Modern.
I have been working on Foundation Paper Piecing and it is going very well in part to this adorable little iron that my husband bought for me this week. This iron eliminates the need for me to run back and forth across my sewing room to the ironing board. I use a pressing board (also made by my husband) and this little iron right beside my machine. You can read a bit more about this is this blog post. We found this iron at my local quilt shop but I checked on {affiliate link} Craftsy and it is 30% off there right now. (Their regular price is the same as my local quilt shop.) Search "Iron" under supplies to find one like this one. Craftsy has a big sale on kits and supplies up to 60% off until Sunday.
