Up For a Challenge? *giveaway*

June is here! We are all having a very creative year, right? As we approach the half-way point of the year, we are going to do something special this month: challenge ourselves to finish as many works-in-progress as possible. That's right: make a clean slate, tidy up the studio (and the mind!). Have you ever noticed that it's hard to feel creative when life and/or your space is cluttered?

Welcome to Color Girl, Now Even More Colorful!

I want to welcome each of you to the newly expanded Color Girl Quilts. I hope you poke around the shop a bit. There are some really fun new things to see and to make and to inspire!

For the Love of Fabric: A Secret Crush

This Love Fabric post features a bit of a throw-back: Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt. This collection is some years old, but still available from some shops. I have always really liked it but resisted the temptation to buy it because the colors were so distinctive, the fabrics would really only coordinate within the collection. Well, I found a bundle of the blue/green color way on sale recently and I finally caved to temptation! But that is because I have some ideas for mixing it... Another favorite: Sun Prints by Alison Glass. This was a series of prints released last year...
