Another blog I like is True Up - a blog devoted to fabric. They have a look at new releases, a sale alert section and lots more posted five days a week. A recent post included a link to the Rit fabric dye site. There you'll find a tool for mixing dye colours digitally - think of the time and mess this would save you if you're into dyeing your own fabric/clothes etc. I'm not but if you are it would be a very handy tool.
This gorgeous quilt is from Anna in my Blackheath class. It is her version of my Spring Baskets doily quilt and I really covet this! Her collection of doilies is fantastic and her colour sense and sewing/embroidery skills are wonderful. It's a great way to use those lovely linens that are hiding in the cupboard - if you can bear to cut them up that is. Here are a few close ups of some of the blocks.
A blue and white spot border will be added with further applique and ric rac. I want it!
