Washed Earth Mosaic Contest hosted by Stitched in Color

I couldn't resist entering this contest offered by one of my favorite blogs, Stitched in Color.  I created two mosaics of my interpretation of Washed Earth from the fabrics at Pink Chalk Fabrics.  Autumn is my favorite time of year, and I'm increasingly attracted to neutral palettes, especially shades of gray mixed with muted blues or browns.  The prize is a bundle of fat quarters made of the fabrics in the mosaic.  Wish me luck!

Here are my two entries.

I could not resist the call of Chicopee.

I have been salivating over the Chicopee fabric collection for weeks, and I finally succumbed.  I found a 20% off coupon for and ordered every print in the collection, plus some Kona cotton because one can never have too much of that, no?  Here are some of my favorite projects using Chicopee from the Flickr-verse.

I'm not even sure what kind of quilt I'm going to make with it since there are so many wonderful options.  I don't think I have it in me to do another English Paper Piecing project, but we'll see.

Latest Flickr Inspiration

I'm on a huge aqua and tangerine kick, and it's showing up in the pics I've been adding to my favorites.

My favorite binding so far.

Here's a shot of the back and the binding of Addison's quilt.
