Sunday Stash #4 & DQS7

SUNDAY STASH GREETINGS - While browsing etsy the other day, I came across this wonderful quilt made by Carly who has an etsy shop called Quiltville. She lives in Wisconsin and makes the neatest quilts using her own patterns.

This particular quilt I just fell in love with. It doesn't hurt that she pieced the top using Joel Dewberry fabrics! And she even used my current favorite line of his, Deer Valley. I got so excited when I saw the quilt. But was also saddened when I realized I didn't have an extra $195.00 laying around to buy it. Believe me, If I had the cold hard cash that sucker would be mine lickety split! It's a great price!

The pattern she used is called dancing patchwork. She designed it herself. I wandered around her store a bit and found several other quilts she made using the same pattern. Go look at them. They are sooooo cute. Since I couldn't justify ordering the quilt, I ordered a pattern instead. I think this will be the perfect use of some of the new Deer Valley line.

I haven't decided if I am going to use a few fabrics from each colorway for one quilt, or make 3 quilts (one for each colorway).

I can't wait to get the pattern!

NOTE: I wanted to respect copyright laws and wasn't sure If I had permission, so I posted only links to my stash addition (the pattern). Have fun looking at Carly's shop.

Also, hopefully this week I can start updating everyone about my DQS7 quilt. I am so happy to be included in this round. I've been following along for a few rounds and was able to stick my foot in the door this time. I have everything planned out and my fabric arrived on Friday, yay! So stay tuned! I have to stop oogling all the quilts everyone has been posting on the group page so far. I couldn't possibly hold a candle to the awesome stuff that's been shown. Way to go everyone!

  3. Thanks for sharing Carly's beautiful quilt- I love the twisted setting of the blocks. It is a fun way to set the blocks as it gives the quilt movement.
    Looking forward to seeing your new projects..
    Still trying to figure out how to save the slasher quilt but I think I will add inserts rather than slashing- Not much of an applique person so inserts are my only hope..
    Have a great week and enjoy time with your little ones.
    Regards,
    Anna
