Mini Post

It's very hot here tonight. It's probably lovely outside but my sewing room is steamy! So, I'm keeping it short and sweet tonight. Here are a few Robert Kaufman sneak peaks from Quilt Market.

My Quilt Market friends and I scored a giant stack of 3" square freebies from the Robert Kaufman booth on the last day of Market (well, free with purchase anyway). When I got home I ripped the thing open to see what was in it.  Lots and lots of metallic Asian-inspired prints which are totally not my style. But lurking deep within were just a few teeny tiny bits of Tufted Tweets! Here's a little teaser, although you'll notice I'm missing 2 out of 3 of the red prints and the dining room chair print all together.

Here's a shot of one of two awesome Tufted Tweets quilts hanging in the RK booth. Can't wait to get my hands on this yumminess.

Robert Kaufman also has a line of organic cotton coming out called Free to Grow. I believe they use low impact dyes, too. I have enough of these little squares in my stack to actually make something. Maybe a baby quilt? I haven't decided yet.

This is before:

This is after:

See you tomorrow.


  1. LUV IT!!!! Thanks Annik----from the other Tufted Tweets junkie!

    Man I wish that I had also bought that Free to Grow fabric! Darn it!


  2. So glad to hear those little squares went to a good home. I hope you LOVE sewing with Tufted Tweets. Will you share pictures of what you make with it? Pretty please :)

  3. Laurie, thanks for the comment. I really love your new line and I know I'm not the only one. I just joined your Flickr group and will post as soon as I get my hot little hands on your fabric. BTW, I should have know filminthefridge was involved!
