Milk and Cookies

In stark contrast to the colors and prints of last week's project  here is sneak peek at what I am working on this week : ~


Late last week a super sweet bundle of fabric arrived from the lovely Shannon Lamden, the creative force behind the Aunty Cookie brand.  


Shannon sent me a selection of her limited edition hand printed designs in grey on a white back ground. These fabrics are printed with environmentally friendly inks on a 55% linen/ 45% cotton base in Melbourne, Australia.


The subtle grey/white prints are a welcome change from my otherwise bold and colorful palette, and has given has giving me the opportunity to pull out from stash some of my VERY favorite prints (there are many!).  I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with these fabrics.


More soon.

  10. I LOVE Aunty Cookie!!! And on a side note, I just posted something called "Sneak Peek" and spelled both words incorrectly (Sneek Peak). Argh! I do medical transcription in my real life. You would think I would know how to spell something easy like sneak and peek! And your quilt looks great so far!!!
