As with all of Tula Pink's lines of fabric, we were anxiously awaiting the arrival of Eden, her most recent line.

As soon as it got in the door I grabbed my camera to send a picture to our Tula Pink Groupies.

We received 10 bolts from this line.

 Here is a close up of 3 of them.
(These are my 3 favorites)

Each time we get new Tula Pink fabric I have to have a sample made. 
Usually we sell our sample quilts when we are finished with them, but not the Tula quilts.
I have a quilt from each line of Tula Pink fabric since we opened.

So the dilemma was, what should we make. 
When I saw "Simply Eden", the free download from Free Spirit, I knew immediately that was the quilt. 

Lou makes a lot of our sample quilts, but I wanted to make this one. 
The quilt in the pattern used 18 different fabrics. Since we only got 10 that is what I used. So, instead of being a Queen Sized Quilt, mine is a Throw. 

To begin with I needed a Fat Quarter each of 10 different fabrics and some background.

Work in progress: a lot of half square triangles.

The first block done.

The top all put together.

A close up of some of the blocks and the quilting. 

Bound and finished!

I love this fabric and this pattern was an excellent choice to use it in.

This pattern is a free download and you can get it here.

Modern Quilters Eastern Shore Show-n-Tell

I have really been slacking in my blogging this year. I feel like there are so many things I have wanted to blog, so I just don't want to skip them. So hopefully I can make it up over the next few months. 

If you are a regular to my blog then you know I don't usually write much anyway. I like to post pictures of what is going on. Although, I do usually put a caption with each picture. 

Well, since I am posting several months of Modern Quilters Show-n-Tell, I will not be writing something for each picture. One reason is that I may have forgotten what was said about some of the quilts. I don't want to write about some and not the others. The other reason is, I really just want to get it posted and move on. It just would take too long to write about each picture. 

Everyone that knows me knows that my motto is "git r done".

So, here is Show-n-Tell from Modern Quilters over the last several months.

Hope you enjoy.
