Several months ago, as I was browsing through blog-land, I came across a link to Leann's House which took me to a link for the new Vignette magazine. Yes, like everyone here, it was love at first sight. Normally I'm not an impulse buyer, but every once in a while, my un-normal self comes to the forefront.
I immediately began searching Google for a US supplier for the magazines. Ordered them and within a week had them in my hands. Took a quick peek and was immediately struck with the Vignette In Stitches BOM bug. This was one I absolutely had to add to my already packed collection of WIPs.
Although I love the original fabrics used in the project, I knew that ultimately it wasn't "me." So I began to look for something comparable that was a bit more my style. I kinda knew what I wanted, but also knew that it had been out for a couple of years already, so finding a full fat quarter bundle of it would be a challenge.
It must have been fate, because I found possibly the only bundle left online of "Spring Magic" by April Cornell. Love the colors ... love the "springiness" of the palette ... love the softness of the designs ... it was perfect!
I now have all my materials ...
Vignette Issues 1 & 2
Main fabric collection ... Spring Magic by April Cornell for Moda
Additional fabric collection ... Nature's Chorus by April Cornell for Moda
Coordinating fabric ... Moda Bella Solids
Part of me just wants to keep all my fabrics collected, neat and gorgeous, but the quilter in me can't wait to dive in.
I'm so happy to be joining everyone here. It's so fun to see all of the different collections that we're using.
p.s. As of May 1, 2011, Hawthorne Threads just received the "Sweet Broderie" collection of fabrics. I'm sure they'll go quick!
