I am a fan of Crabapple Hill patterns, and have been collecting black and tan fabrics for a while so I could do their Over the River and Through the Woods pattern. I enjoy stitchery, and I adore black with anything so this is right up my alley! I know I’ve been collecting black and tan fabrics for well over a year, but for some reason never felt that I was at a point where I had collected enough fabrics and could actually begin this project. I was continually on the hunt to add to my stash of black and tan fabrics so that “some day” I could make this project. While continuing the ongoing battle to organize my sewing studio, I found several piles of black and tan fabrics which I corralled all in one basket. Holy Cow! I had enough black and tan fabrics to make three of these quilts!!!
BUT don’t think that stopped me from gathering some of the Cambridge Square fabric line from Northcott to add to the project bin. This fabric collection is perfect for this quilt – guess I’ll just have to eliminate some of the others I’ve already purchased so I can work these into the mix. Or perhaps there is another black and tan quilt in my future. I know my friend Debbie is working on a black and tan version of Pat’s new pattern called Scrappy Nines and it is stunning. Hmmm…the wheels are turning! Any suggestions?
P.S. Northcott also has a free pattern download here using the Cambridge Square fabric collection.
