Fort Worth MQG 2014

My mom and I are officially members of the Fort Worth MQG as of last night! We're so excited to join the group and already inspired to get sewing. We adore our pins!

I'm especially excited about the 2014 Block of the Month quilt. I've been thinking about my color palette and finally decided on it when I glanced at a bottle of lotion. Just goes to show there's inspiration everywhere!

I chose an orchid fabric for my background (apparently the 2014 color of the year) and chose some warm-colored fat quarters and a few dark berry colors. I'm stretching myself this year by not using any prints or any blue fabrics (I LOVE prints and I ALWAYS pick blue fabrics). Plus I don't own a purple quilt and I think that's just awful.

Another thing that inspires me to FINISH my quilts this year is that I got a beautiful handmade ladder for my quilts as a Christmas present, and I don't have enough quilts to hang on it! The double wedding ring quilt is an unfinished top I recently bought on Etsy. I plan to pick a backing fabric and quilt it myself. Not sure if I'll keep it or sell it yet, but I love it! The quilt on the table is the one I'm currently working on that I hope to have finished for the next meeting's Show and Share!


  1. Yay! I'm so excited that you and your mom are joining us! I love your color palette for the BOM, and I am totally jealous of your quilt ladder! I'm trying to convince my hubby to make me one this year.

  2. Hey! You put up a pic of the ladder I made you! Awesome!
