Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Just checking in around here because it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted. How are things going out there? Not much excitment around here — which, I suppose is good. Even Valentine’s Day was pretty uneventful this year. I can’t believe I just said that either — how can Valentine’s Day be over already?

It’s mostly just work, eat, sleep, repeat around here, but we have had a little fun. We visited our cute little FinallyAGirl yesterday. She’s growing like a weed and cute as a button. No pictures though — we were too busy just playing with the baby. The weather has been amazing the past few days too — we’ve set record high temps and the kitty cats are loving all the fresh air at their screen door.

The other fun has been the arrival of the Goldilocks fabric by Jill Howarth. I first saw this line at quilt market — I think a year and a half ago — It was a LONG wait for it to finally be released.

I was so excited to get this fabric that I got the whole line for my little etsy shop — oops!  Here’s the feature print — isn’t it cute?  I LOVE those adorable bears.

I’ve been having fun playing with it and I’ve started a little applique project.  I think it would have been easier to just cut the bears out of the feature fabric and applique them, but where’s the fun in that?

I plan to add some embroidery to the little bears too — to show some of the finer details that would be really hard to do with applique. We’ll see if this project goes according to plan LOL.

Hopefully I’ll be back soon with a finished project. In the meantime, have a great week!

  3. Your little bear project is darling already. LOVE the Goldilocks fabric and such soft colors. Abby can’t wait for no rain, no cold and days snoozing on the patio. I may be joining her. Glad your kitties are happy campers. :o)

    Those appliqué bears are so cute! Anxious to see what will develop. Glad you got to spend some time with Miss FinallyAGirl. Nothing in the world like baby therapy!

  9. I love this fabric, Anna. I’m sure that Goldilocks would have picked my bed, I always make it.

  10. Oh, Anna, I love it! Those bears are just too cute! “Not exciting” is not a bad thing. When you’ve had lots of not good “excitings”, boring is suddenly a happy thing. ;)
    At least it’s SPRING! And that is always a happy thing in my book!

  14. Very cute fabric. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it….

  15. your kitties are lovely little fur balls … and the Goldilocks fabric is pretty doggone cute – even though i am telling myself, “NO, dianne!!! NO MORE FABRIC!!!” and taking myself over to the Great Pile of Stuff to remind me of WHY…

  16. Quilt Taffy (Corrie) showcased this fabric at quilt group today. It is Very Cute! So tempting for us grammas.

  17. Oh me oh my–kitties and fabric are darling!! It’s been some crazy weather here in MN, too–almost 60, and all my snow is gone. Thank you for the fun update, now time for an Easter banner? Yes, you can call me The Banner Nazi. I just love to see what you come up with! ?

  18. Well isn’t the new banner adorable?! Now I need me some jelly beans! :)

  19. Such sweet fabrics! And I love your cute bears applique! It is a lovely range to make children’s quilts and the colours are a good mix for either girls or boys.

  20. Can’t wait to see what you’re making… You are ambitious. I’ve been thinking about applique on a Goldilocks quilt too, but just can’t quite commit. :)
