Hot off the press.

I'm not one of those quilters who gets fabric as soon as it's released. And, I never, ever buy an entire line.  I wait until it's been around for (quite) a while, and then I buy only my very favourite piece or pieces from the line.  But, I got very, very lucky in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway last month, and I won this!

Yes, it's a bundle of Carolyn Friedlander's new line, Doe.  And, it's beautiful.  These photos don't do it justice, but I'm afraid that the deep grey winter days will be here for some time yet.

Now, I understand why one might purchase an entire line. The fabrics all work together so nicely--the colours, the values, all of it.  I can't wait to get started on a project using the whole lot together.  But I'm going to give it some serious thought first.  It may be the only time I get to work with an entire collection, and I want to show it off at it's best.

And I owe this treat to Becca Bryan of Bryan House Quilts  who was so generous with her giveaway.  It's really appreciated. Thanks again, Becca. Becca also has a new book on my favourite topic--colour--coming out in the spring.
