My Crazy Quilting Passion - So What Will These Supplies Become?


I've been rather busy the past few weeks working on some of my blogs and some of my websites, but I've managed to get some shopping in.

Oh, what a surprise, Linda? There's always time for shopping! Right?

Now you might be wondering exactly what kind of shopping  I did and what is it for? As to where I went shopping -  if you know me it's a combination of letting your fingers do the walking and actually getting in the car and going retail shopping.

What it's for has to do with my new found crazy quilting passion and gifts for the holidays. Since some of it is for gifts this holidays season I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipients so you'll just have to guess what I might be making out of all of the things I bought.

So, what did I buy?

Well, we have some whites........

We have some creams......

We have some beautiful golds....

We have some elegant silvers....

The ever formal and traditional blacks.....

Some linings perhaps.....

Maybe some pink lace edging can be used somewhere?

How about some delicate green and black lace edging?

It might even be time to utilize the beautiful lace from my sister's friends' old wedding gown....

I really hate cutting such a beautiful gown, but the lace is just gorgeous....

Wouldn't you agree it's perfect for some crazy quilting piece(s).....

How about some amazing trims and embellishments from Flights of Fancy....

I didn't forget the dragonflies.....

Some cording and straps from Joanns.....

Some beautiful florals from Pamela Amundson of theDelightfuldesigner on Etsy...

Some exquisite trims from Pamela Amundson of theDelightfuldesigner on Etsy...

Colorful silk ribbons from silkribbons4you on Etsy.....

Maybe some of my own ribbon trims might be put to use.....

Maybe even some of my lace trim stash.....

Perhaps something from my bridal floral stash.....

Didn't forget the threads from Joanns..... I haven't had time to shop for Kreinik threads yet....Don't worry, however, I will.....

Or, maybe I might even use some of the buttons from my stash.....

I can hardly wait to get started on this crazy quilting idea.  First, I have to develop my patterns.  That's right there's a plural (s) in there.  Can't exactly give everyone the same style. Can I?  They compare after all....

So, I'm left to developing a general pattern that I can modify here and there.

Have any idea what all the above is going to make?

Stay tuned.  For sure it will be revealed after the holidays....

I know, I know that's a long time to wait.  But, I don't want to give away the gift surprise.

Well, maybe I'll show you a few things between now and then.

We'll see.....
