Rapture Quilt Planning : :

Yesterday after finishing a few crown orders I continued work on the two quilts I've recently started, a "Diamond Zig Zig" using AGF's Minimalista and a "Follow the Arrow" quilt with my Blogger's choice bundle for the Fat Quarter Shop. I'm getting close to having finished quilt tops for the both of them, which means it's time to start planning out my next project! I just might love this part the most -- the planning, the sketching, and the beginning!

Beautiful Rapture

This time I'll be using Pat Bravo's newest fabric debut, Rapture. With supplies this beautiful I'm bound to end up with something wonderful! I love every single fabric in this collection, especially Pat's Wild Beauty print. These fresh colors with that little touch of black is excellent!

Beautiful Rapture

I'll add in this pretty stack of Art Gallery Pure Element Solids that coordinate with Rapture perfectly!

AGF Pures for Rapture!

I recently received Pat's very own collection of Aurifil 50wt cotton thread kits that she's designed to match up with her fabric collection colors. Having such an amazing assortment to pull from is going to make for some very fun & colorful quilting!

I quickly sketched out the beginnings of my Rapture quilt earlier this week, a second Making Rows Quilt idea! I can't wait!!

How about you, are you planning to start any new quilting projects this weekend?

I just got a bundle of Rapture also! Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet though. I was leaning towards a wonky cross quilt with the fabrics accented against crisp white backgrounds.

Gayle Bouters said...

How do you stay so focused? I don't know a lot about the Aurofil thread. Do you use it in the final quilting step?

Kim W. said...

Yummmmmy! I'm still working on a quilted bag for a friend to give to her mom for "chemo essentials" - a very special project.... but of course what I designed included itty bitty squares / triangles! Slowly but surely it is getting done!

I'm working on the design for a quilt for my niece! Can't wait to get started properly. :-)

Jacey said...

Looks like you're starting another lovely quilt! I've got one overdue Christmas gift quilt, and a baby niece quilt deadline that's approaching. I've started planning for both!

Elsa said...

Oh, I just love Art Gallery Fabric ~ such pretty colors and always so soft.
My guild (PMQG) is doing a medallion sew along and I'm doing a Dresden Plate as my center. Did it with the new line from Anna Maria Horner and I'm loving how it's turned out! It's 24 1/2" of loveliness (if I do say so myself). It's got me thinking of doing something else with all sorts of sizes of Dresden Plates!
