Sunday Stash: New Project Prep

Yesterday I got fabric for two new tops that are in the works from my friendly neighborhood quilt store. First up is my landlady's daughter's wedding quilt. I'm making Deborah Cohen's Trinity Celtic Knot in red, blue, and gold. Not particularly original, but I think it will look nice.

The second is a Korea-inspired top that I am tentatively naming "Gung Mun," which means palace gate. I walked in with one of my Dongdaemun fabrics that I would say is primarily turquoise, red, and orange and came away with a light blue/turquoise and a peachy pink. I'm quite surprised but also pleased with the choices. If I had bet beforehand, I would have said I would get a dark blue/turquoise and maybe a red or yellow. Good thing I'm not a betting person!

Stay tuned for the trials and tribulations that will surely arise from these projects! And, look at everyone else's pretties on Sunday Stash!


  1. Oooh, the second picture intrigues me a LOT. Love the aqua and peach! Not a combo I've seen before but it literally screams potential for perfection.

  2. I love the blue/turquoise and a peachy pink combo!

  3. I really like the colors and your sketch for the second quilt, can't wait to see it in progress!
