I like to buy new patterns and read/admire them for awhile before I buy the fabric to go with.
First up is a new bag pattern from "Lazy Girl Designs," the Sweatpea Pods. Cathy brought back a sample of the special zipper required for this bag from Fall market. Isn't it cute?
I showed you this layer cake and "City Blocks" pattern last week -- now the Moda Bella Solids that I want to use for the background has arrived, so this will be my next "new quilt" start!
You know how I love "strip quilts." This new book from That Patchwork Place has lots of great patterns that use 2½" fabric strips. I can't decide which one to make first!
This was a "just because it's pretty" purchase. I have a growing collection of text prints, and I think this block will make a great pillow for my "word nerd" friends!
Being an Idaho native, I couldn't resist this embroidery pattern. Even though I haven't embroidered for years!
Do you ever buy a pattern that you'll never make up, just because you like it? Elder Son says "It's OK to buy it just because it's pretty!"
