Swanky ... Yum-O

Oh how i LOVE this fabric! it is Swanky by Moda and it is so pretty!

Below is a picture of the pattern I am going to do this in. I am using the pattern called Sparkling Gemstones in the Jelly Roll Quilts book by Pam & Nicky Lintott.

This is a picture of the pattern...where there is white all around the blocks, I am going to use the pink on pink pictured above...then the floral will be the small 2 1/2" border.

On another note...my Cotton Blossom quilt isn't coming along very smoothly ... i noticed Friday evening that i wasn't going to have enough 7" strips to make the braids i needed, so i need to get some fat quarters ... when i read the directions it said you needed additional cuts from your background and border fabrics, but it didn't say you needed 45 of them!!!! So, that will be on hold for a short time, but that's ok because it will give me a chance to see if i can do some simple quilting on my table toppers ... nothing fancy, just some diagonal lines!

Hope everyone had a great Monday and the week only get better!

Happy stitching :O)

I have some Swanky that I am trying to make a final decision on what to do with. I like your idea.
I just finished a Cotton Blossoms quilt and LOVE it. Hope you do too.
