Can You Spare A Dime

It's time for spring market. I had planned on having a booth this year since it's in my own backyard. But life through me a curve ball. And when it was time to be reserving a booth I was making weekly visits to the chemo lab. Whimp that I am I didn't dare commit my time and money when I didn't know if my body was going to cooperate. I had decided being small and selling local wasn't so bad. The shops I sell to are wonderful, the owners talented caring people, and I enjoy my visits with them. Still I was a little disappoionted. So imagine my excitement when my sister, Julie, asked me to design a quilt for her new fabric line, Circa 1934. Cosmo Cricket is now designing for Moda and I must say Moda did a great job with Julie's newest creation. Going with the 1934 theme I created 'Can You Spare A Dime'. I had fun playing with the circle theme that is present in this new line, from the old fashioned typewriter keys to my beloved polka dots. So I appliqued circles on point and continued the theme in the quilting then because it felt right I put on a dotty binding. This was a great line to work with. In fact I'll be showing you on Friday a few other creations that I made with Julie's great fabric.

  1. Ooh awesome! Your quilt looks great! I didn't realize Cosmo Cricket went over to Moda - hopefully good things happen with that partnership. Hey Sugar is one of my most favorite lines & I'm generally a fan. :)
