Onto the next....

I am *still* waiting on dearest Sara for a few blocks to add into Mimi's quilt so I haven't started piecing it yet. Hopefully it will be next week though! IN the mean time....of course I need something to do besides laundry!
This next quilt I'm calling the vintage kitchen quilt. Strange yes, but in the past 2 years my taste in well....anything has rather changed. My taste has always reflected my husband's taste- modern, contemporary, clean lines, bold colors (mostly red) and add in some textures. My kitchen is currently filled with white square dishes (with beading along the edges), and lots of modern red glassware. My next house won't. Well I'll keep the white, but add in COLOR! and those amazing vintage colors!
Back to my story...all of a sudden a couple of years ago I get bored with Red. IMAGINE THAT. don't get me wrong, i still like it...but all of a sudden I'm inspired by other colors and I start wearing bright colored jewelry, de-clutter any excess red in my kitchen and start buying random pieces of vintage furniture and my husband doesn't know what to do with me! He hates it...and I love it. If you ask me what my style & taste is like now? I'd say "Vintage". with some color & texture.
I came across some fabrics that just really got my gears going- It's taking me longer than I expected to piece this quilt together, but when it's done it'll be awesome as usual. It's a design I haven't done yet so I'm excited to finish piecing it together. I'm about 3/4 the way done with the top piece. So stay tuned!
Just for some eye candy- here's some inspiration for my vintage kitchen quilt!
