It was easy to title this post.  It is one I have been meaning to do for quite some time but somehow the days get away from me and I do not get to the blog as frequently as I would like.  Spending less time sewing and on Instagram (and at the day job) would help solve that dilemma.

A few months back I came home from work and saw a very large parcel on the front porch.  I panicked, because I knew I had not ordered anything in a while.  So I brought the package into the house and found that the wonderful folks at Artgallery Fabrics had sent me Katarina Rocella’s new Recollections collection.

For those of you who don’t know, my first adventure with Katarina’s fabrics were for the SDQAL which used her Indelible line.  I fell in love with her use of patterns and colors.

This collection is spectacular with a wide array of design and color.  I used a pattern from a That Patchwork Place book titled Easy Weekend Quilts called Confectionery.  I thought the pattern would give all the fabrics a chance to play together.   I used a cream and dark blue AGF as the main solids for the piece.

I’ve included pictures showing the final piece before the binding got put on.  The first shot shows the spectacular quilting Sue was able to do for me.  As always she was able to take the quilt to new heights with some wonderful quilting.

I also posted a few close up of the various blocks so you can see the design.  All in all I think this came out quite well!
