A taste of things to come!

Yes, I have a new project on the horizon....I just spent my christmas gift certificates from Hyggeligt on this luscious bundle of fabrics! Hyggeligt is just down the street from my store so I can pop down there for a break and get my dose of sunshine in fabrics! Chantal has the brightest selection of fabrics I have ever seen in London. She specializes in Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, and Liberty fabrics, the only place in London where you can get that type of fabric (and she does mail order for you outoftowners!) I also picked up earlier from her Cherry House's City Quilts book. I really like Cherry's urban styles and use of solids....but having said that I will be adapting her City Harbor pattern with the above fabrics and making a queen size spread for my bed.
I can't wait to see how it turns out! Her original pattern is 66x71 in and I will be increasing it to 96x104 with each of the bars being 4in, so I will still have the same number of bars.
It may be awhile before you see any photos for this piece as I have vowed to quilt my t-shirt quilt first and make some more blocks for a comic book quilt I am working on...and then this project will be my reward!
