Infatuated with the Saturated

I pieced another block from the Farmers Wife Quilt. I LOVE this block...



I think it was Strawberry Basket. Do you just LOVE that red? OMGosh!!! Sending an alert out...if you know from where that red fabric hails....



PLEASE let me know! The selvedge was cut off of my fat 1/8 so I have no idea the company but I MUST have yardage of that red! It's so saturated with color...I LOVE it! Any idea what line it's from?

I've been infatuated with a new book too....



It's saturated with tons of quilts that WILL be made by my hand for certain! LOVE Carrie Nelson's designs...this book is a winner! (I have two left in stock if you'd like your own copy. $25 includes US delivery. Just email me!)

And I can't stop looking at these new to the stash sock yarns...



Madelinetosh Swimming Pool and Tarantula Hawk Skinny Bugga....oh gracious I can't wait to start knitting those socks up!!! The color is amazing!

These are just a few things that have caught my fancy this evening around the sewing room. I've decided I'm happiest when surrounded by saturated color! Who knew? ;o)

*Peace!

I'm glad that someone found it for you. I went down and checked my piece and there was a selvage - a very thin one with no markings! I love that fabric too - maybe I should.......no, I better be good - but I like it!

You got your answer about the delicious red fabric... and I'm glad you could score some yardage.
The yarn and header look wonderful too! Sent an e-mail about the book.
