WILLIAMSBURG TOILE


I asked my friend, Marae, to let me take a picture of her with my new quilt. She lives here in Mesa, AZ, and does most of my quilting. As always, she did a beautiful job quilting for me. I love doing my part of the designing and piecing, and she frosts the cake with her beautiful work! Thanks Marae!
I am excited about this new design. The toile is from Windham Fabrics Williamsburg Centennial Line. I probably should have bought more from that line, but I had just received the fat quarter pack from Judie Rothermel's Old Surbridge Scarlet. They go beautifully together, along with a couple pieces from Barbara Brackman.  I leave here for home on Monday and then I will get the pattern directions written, etc. It always feels so good to see each stage completed. More later from Virginia!

Looks great . . . you can just never go wrong with red *s*

Absolutely wonderful Marcie. Even someone like me that uses funky fabric can do that. Can't wait to see the pattern on your site. I love the red and tan, great choice. I think you should send a copy to Micky at Windham Fabrics. Or I'll take one with to market.

Wowie Zowie that's amazing. I love the Sturbridge Scarlet's. Got some myself, too. Yummy. Enjoy!

Love the quilt and the fabric! Which came first? The design or the fabric? Just curious about your designing method!
