Fabric box mania

A new fabric box made in a different way.     The result is a softer box with a nice X design on the bottom. I have used a different fabric for each side to underline the pattern.       Thanks Elena for the very nice idea !!

...but I have  made a new one following the first way. The inside is with different fabrics ... I like it so much !


Fabric boxes

...I love these boxes !


New patches

I have made some sampler patches for two different upcoming classes...
...the colors are away from my comfort zone...just springlike.

But I love the color shades of Kaffe Fasset fabrics (printed and shot cottons)  I have chosen and hope to be able to put the patches all together  when finished to make a quilt like this but in different colors.   



The random colors layout is okay...but there was something that didn't make me totally satisfied...

...then I have understood...the colors contrasting was too low , too "flat"!
I have added the black dotted fabric and now I like as it turn out much more...     

And having a look to the Nifty Quilts last post I have had the confirm of my doubts ...
...look what a nice high contrasting baby tumbler quilt!


Again winter colors

Again winter colors for the first project of this year.
I like the tumbler pattern but I never used it before...

I think it's perfect to use with fabrics that I didn't want to cut  in too much little pieces
 (I love the big red-gray dots fabric!) .   

Here is how the project start to grow on my design wall...
The first (and more spontaneous) layout is with random colors .... 

...any suggestion for a different one?
