Lizzy House on the Brain

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.

  1. I'm really torn on this one! A part of me wants to join in, but a part of me thinks I don't have nearly enough Lizzy House fabric. Ugh. Too hard.

  2. Those mice are super cute! Don't put them too close to the cats one though...wouldn't you be saving on heating bills if you insulated your house with fabric?!

  5. Oooh... if Lizzy House prints were more readily available where I live, I know I'd be unable to resist them. So lovely!

  6. I am the same as Audrey above. I really want to join, but am worried that I just don't have enough Lizzy House fabrics. I have a few pearl bracelets, a couple of jewels and castle peeps and two catnap prints. I guess it depends on how specific the partner is that you get!

  8. Not sure but looks like those fabrics need a good home! It's not nice to hoard them and not share!

  9. YAY! I got to see the mice again! I feel your hesitation about making a quilt for a quilter!
