Mini Dwell WIP: Top Done....Now Onto Quilting!

Well, I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day, but then again I think that a lot of us must feel this way.  I think that perhaps a little prioritization and list making is in order, but doesn't that take time as well?  Anyway, enough of that.  I am finishing up the initial April Showers fabric orders to send out, but I wanted to get a quick post in since it has been a little while.  
I do really love this new collection by Bonnie and Camille, but then again I love pretty much all of them.  While waiting on this new fabric to arrive and procrastinating taxes, I started working on a Mini Dwell using the Thimble Blossoms pattern by none other than Camille Roskelley.  I have been on a bit of a Hometown fabric kick lately, so of course that is what I used.  I basically love it!  Plus, I was able to use some more labels from Sweetwaterscrapbooks on Etsy.  Their labels are amazing!
I just need to figure out how I want to quilt it.  I want it to be fast, but I want it to look good as well!  I take way too long contemplating these things....
The other amazing fabric collection that we just got into the Etsy shop is Grey Abbey by Elizabeth Olwen for Cloud 9.  Cloud 9 has a great free quilt pattern using this fabric called the Ribbon Box Quilt on their website.  It is definitely worth checking out.  I have been greatly anticipating the arrival of this one, and it is perfect!  It is up in the shop now, and of course I want to make some thing with it.  But I am going to try my hardest to resist, so I can finish a couple of other projects first.   Maybe if I can finish a couple I will reward myself by sewing some thing new with it!
Lastly, I was wanting to do a giveaway on Instagram, hopefully sometime tomorrow.  If you are interested follow my Instagram account, GoobaDesigns.  I think I will be giving away one of Thimble Blossoms "mini" patterns and a fabric kit with it.  Haven't decided exactly what yet, any suggestions?  

Thanks for stopping by and this post is linked up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


  1. What beautiful little dwellings on your block/quilt. Cute is such an over used word but they are cute... or intriguing or intricate. I love them. Hope to do a quilt featuring house blocks one day... its on the list along with so many other things

  2. The houses are adorable. And I'm ogling that Grey Abbey. Such a gorgeous collection.
