patchwork prism choices

Pin It I *think* I've chosen my fabrics for my Patchwork Prism class with Anna Maria Horner.

This is the quilt featured at the class Amanda and I are going to attend tomorrow.

I've thought long and hard about buying the kit, because well... even the mock-up up there is amazing.  
But goodness knows I have enough fabric already, and rainbows are gorgeous, but not as guaranteed to get a lot of use at our house.

Partly inspired by my Blogger's choice bundle (that didn't win), and partly inspired by the fact that I am determined to make a red quilt in honor of my favorite color and my favorite girl I think I'm going with this palette.

I really can't help it.  

This sweet print from Urban Chiks was my starting point, and I went from there.

And I think I'm going to love it. 

And I think our lovely teacher is going to laugh at me when she sees my GIGANTIC pile of fabric I bring. 

Now wish me luck! 

* It wouldn't seem that luck was needed beings that I'll be sewing all day, and with wonderful people, but I have to set an alarm for 4:00 so I can feed Scarlet (if she isn't awake by then), and then feed her before we leave about 7:00, and then drive 90 miles and hope there isn't traffic, and then Daddy has to get Scarlet to Grandma's who is going to bring her to the sewing day (I figure no one will mind if I feed my girl), and then Grandma is going to run errands, and then Scarlet will come back and eat again, and then Mommy will keep sewing while Scarlet goes home with Grandma, and then Amanda and I will drive home and I'll get my Scarlet again.  I'm just hoping Scarlet does well with her bottles when she's not with me, and I don't explode or anything like that... oh, and traffic's not too bad.  So yea, I'm a little nervous too.

And I have to sew the buttons on Scarlet's little jacket.

Krista said...

Oh man, I remember those days with an infant who wouldn't take a bottle well. I'm so glad that you have people to help out so you can go do this fabulous workshop! Have loads of fun! I'm very jealous.

Anna Maria will be honored to meet you and Amanda..and especially all the thought and sweetness that went into coming to her class. Have fun gals!!

I think you'll win AMH over with your sweet Scarlet more than anything. She's definitely the right person to bring a baby to! ;) Have a blast and keep calm! It will all be great!

You are indeed a brave girl! Hope it all goes smoothly and you can enjoy the workshop. There was this one time that I nearly exploded when I went for my first hair cut and colour with newborn baby. Had to walk home with dye in my hair to express!

I don't think she will be surprised. At the trunk show tonight she said bring lots and lots of fabric. :) I personally can not wait. I guess I should go to bed soon so I am not late. Luckily I don't have as far as a drive as you do. That is unless I too hit traffic. :)

It's going to be an amazing class and the visits from little Miss Scarlet should keep you going. What a nice little break for all of the other people too. Have a good time.

I'm looking forward to seeing the progress you make on your class project! Your fabrics look lovely together.
What a wonderful support system you have in your hubby and "grandma". Just take an extra bottle so you can leak in it if you need to. I had no such support team when my 26 yearold baby was a baby. He just went everywhere with me, and I got less done than before I had him. It was all good because he was my joy, the light in my days. When he was 6 he spent the summer with my folks. My 3 sisters each chose a date when I would go pick him up (before the summer was over), lol. We had never been apart!
