mendocino

A while back I mentioned that I really love Denyse Schmidt, her design, and fabric, but my top favorite fabric designer is Heather Ross. I suppose I love her so much because I make mostly baby quilts, and her cute (not cutesy) lines of fabric are perfect. I also LOVE her color combinations--lots of oranges, blues, pinks, golden yellow...all favorites.

I finally got my hands on her latest line, Mendocino, and it's as lovely as can be--fishies, octopi, seahorses, and don't forget the mermaids! My daughter wants a quilt with mermaids!

This:will soon be this:I don't often sketch out a quilt, but every once in a while I can't see the whole picture in my head and a sketch works nicely.
