architextures mini quilt

Do you ever fall in love with a fabric line and want to use it in all of your projects? That's how I feel about Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures line, which I first saw at Quilt Market last fall. I snagged a little mini pack (2.5" squares) of the line while I was there, and finally turned it into a small quilt last month.

The top was entirely paper pieced by hand, some of which I did while traveling to and from Quilt Market in Portland in May.

While at Market, I actually had the opportunity to meet Carolyn, who was incredibly nice and had an amazing booth.

I used chambray squares between each of the octagons, and backed the quilt with a vintage reproduction floral print.

I absolutely adore this quilt---now I just need to figure out where to put it!

What are your favorite fabric lines? In addition to Carolyn's work, I really love Leah Duncan's designs, and can't wait to get some yardage of her new line, which will be released next month.
