Hearts and Blossoms
The other day I found myself north of the city of Charlotte and decided to stop in at Quilter's Loft, in Mooresville. Quilter's Loft is located in a beautiful old building with big windows, original wood floors, and plaster and exposed brick walls. There are two entrances: one opens directly onto a room crammed full of machines and embroidery products and the other sends you up an old stairway into multiple rooms and full of beautiful fabric. I can't believe I didn't have my camera, but next time I am determined to remember. In the meantime, you can visit Quilters Loft and see all the latest news from Erika, the owner.
I was drawn to some Valentine's Day fabric by Moda, which happened to be on sale. (Our daughter loves anything pink and brown!) It was a perfect excuse to try out some new patterns I have been designing for my second line of fabrics for Robert Kaufman.
So far we have paper-pieced hearts...
and made some little blossoms....
What shall we do with them?
P.S. For those of you who have inquired, we have not yet found an adequate replacement for black stretchy, however we have not given up the quest!
