Upcoming Projects for November

Wow, can you believe it is November already!? October seemed to fly by so quickly and I hardly noticed that it ended! I have been busy working on a number of different projects (all of which will be tutorials in the near future) and I wanted to give everyone a sneak peak on what you can expect.

My next project is the Tiffany Diamonds quilt for Moda Bake Shop:I have Sarah at Fabric Crush to thank for the snazzy name for this quilt 🙂 The fabric collection is called “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” by Fig Tree Quilts at Moda, hence the suitable name. As you can see above it is very close to finished. And for those of you that shy away from machine quilting, I plan to tie this quilt rather than machine quilt it and will have a tutorial on that as well =) The tutorial (printable version) will be on Moda Bake Shop on December 2nd and will be available on Quilting In The Rain shortly before.

I am also working on another non-quilt project for Moda Bake Shop: a woven rug made with a Jelly Roll pre-cut. This one will be very fun for me because it is something completely new. It is going to be a bit of a quilt/weave hybrid…and it also needs to be tough enough to survive people stepping all over it. I hope it turns out!

Finally, my last project will remain a mystery until I can prove that it’s going to work….but lets say that I just dropped by the hardware store to buy a coil of 14 gauge wire and I had my husband order me a soldering iron on Amazon 🙂 This is for a upcoming winter-themed project. I will let you all know what it is very soon – and pray for me that I won’t burn something with my new toy (my arm hairs have already been singed and regrown after a past run-in with a chemistry Bunsen burner). :-

Happy Quilting!!! Stay tuned… 😉

    Looking forward to seeing the rug!
    Question for you, I'm originally from Seattle and now live in the south and when I'm home for a visit twice a year I never have a chance to go quilt shop shopping and I'm making a point this next visit to go to some shops. Can you please suggest some for me. I'll be up around the airport area and up north. Thanks so much!

    Hi Cindy, thanks for the post! Below are my suggestions. I live in Seattle, so all of my suggestions are either in Seattle or a little North of that. I just realized that i've never been to a quilt shop South of Seattle (shame on me!). Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!!

    1. Keepsake Cottage Fabrics in Bothell. 3 yrs ago I stepped into this shop and at that moment the fabric addiction bug got me. From then on i've been quilting non-stop. Not sure if you've been there? It's a charming shop that looks like a country barn but jam-packed, overflowing with fabric.
    2. Fabric Crush in Wallingford. If you like bright and fresh prints, this is the place to go. It's a fantastic shop with great lighting. Whenever I go there I can't help but to simply admire all of the beautiful fabrics as if it were a fabric gallery.
    3. Quilting Loft in Ballard. Wonderful shop with lots of novelty prints. Occasionally they do their own pre-cuts. Lots of K.Fasset prints if you're into that.

    Thanks so much for the information. I will go to all 3….plus while I'm in Wallingford, I'll go get a cupcake at the cupcake shop.

    If you do go south of Seattle, go to the shop in Des Moines. They were in one of the shop hop magazines a few years ago. Looks like a great place to go. Thanks again….can't wait to get home and check these stores out.
