I’ve had Lizzy House on the brain. It’s not an unusual phenomenon; I like her work and have bought plenty of her fabric. But yesterday, at Lee Heinrich’s trunk show with the NHMQG, I saw this quilt, which features Lizzy’s pearl bracelet fabric. Then my Instagram feed reminded me of this event, hosted by Jo (IG: riddlingwhimsy) and Sarah (IG: smilestooloudly):
I decided to take stock of the Lizzy House fabric I have on hand. I’ve bought both Pearl Bracelets and Jewels in many different colors. They are not your average basics. The latest infusion of Lizzy House-ness to my stash, however, was this collection of fat quarters from Catnap. I’m no longer a cat lover (I married a man who is allergic to cats—it was a price I paid for love), but I couldn’t resist these critters.
And the mice! Eep—they are hysterical.
I had been trying hard to avoid signing up for the swap because (1) I already have more quilty projects than I can shake a stick at and (2) the idea of piecing and quilting for a quilter I don’t know stresses me out a bit. I have until March 10—as do you!—to make a decision. To learn more about this Instagram swap, go to Jo’s feed. To give me a pep talk about how awesome swaps are and why I should join this one, comment below.
