A promise is a promise

I have been very fortunate to have recieved fabric from Michael Miller to makes some samples of my patterns out of. I have had so much playing with this fabric. I was hoping to show you some fun finished projects but my weekend didn't let me get that far. So here's a couple pictures of partially unfinished tops. I am really LOVING this line of Gray, Citron, and Black. Remember this post? After I mentioned I was looking for yellow and gray, Kathy Miller contacted me wondering if I was interested in any of this line.Um, YEAH! Oh, I can't tell you how much fun it is. This is only one of 3 quilts I am making from this line.

I have this thing with Christmas fabric. I have always felt like it should be Red and Green. All this Aqua blue and other colors is really throwing me off. But lately my fabric choices have been a little less than traditional. I've been seeing the fun and out-of-the-box-ness of throwing a few extra colors in and I'm LOVING the results. Which brings me to my next project.

I have always envisioned my Park City pattern in Christmas fabics. The flower applique has a slight snow-flake influence. Anyhow, these prints are FUNKY! In a good way :o) Michael Miller's Funky Christmas was just was I was looking for to go a little less than traditional with Christmas this year. Fun aqua, a splash of pink, lime-y-er green, and of course the regular red and pine green of christmas. If you're looking for some FUN this christmas, you've got to check out this line! :o) Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some sewing to do.

I discovered the citron, black and grey faborics this past weekend and I am in love! I now need a fantastic pattern to use them on!
