Flaun's Fabric Pull Friday: Movie Prompts!

It's a brand new year and I wanted to start my fabric pulls with a bit of a challenge: movies.

If you know me personally (and I guess you'll know this about me, now), I love movies. I especially love science fiction or fantasy movies. There are so many series or fandoms, if you will, that hold a special place in my geeky little heart.

Of course, also being me, I had to push the rules a bit. Some of my pulls will not be from movies, but long-standing franchises from television. I'll also pepper in pulls on projects I am currently constructing here in my little mountain retreat.

Let's start with a series I watch over and over, start to finish, multiple times a year: Harry Potter.

Jo Rowling did a beautiful thing with this series, and I'm so happy they turned it into a series of movies. Of course, the acting got better as the kids grew into their craft, the special effects got better as technological advances were made, and the story went darker as you knew it would if you read the books. In the magical end, a young boy who should have been hard or grasping at any semblance of power or possession he could reach was the honest, caring, generous victor we all needed him to be.

I need a bit of his bravery in my heart. All my thanks to Jo Rowling for Harry, his entire Wizarding World, and now Newt Scamander.

Today's Fabric Pull Friday honors Harry and his house, as well as so many other favorite characters: Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Fred, George, Neville...

Flaun's Fabric Pull Friday: Clean Slate

It is Fabric Pull Friday, once again!

This week's pull is inspired by the coming new year. Each year, it feels like turning a page in our planner (or the calendar) magically gives us a Clean Sate on which to work. For me, it's a new starting point, a washing away of mistakes, and a renewal of focus.

I hope your new year brings everything you dare to dream.

Clean Slate

I promise I'll get back to posting about more than fabric pulls, soon. I even started sewing something the other day. I can't wait to share it with you!

Flaun's Fabric Pull Friday: Cozy Cabin

The trek with my best friend across 3/4 of the US took five days, instead of the planned four, due to a big accident on the freeway that shut it down for a night. Still, one more night was a small price to pay for a safe arrival. (Though the hotel and spa fee may have been a bit higher. Let's be honest.)

I'm so glad to be back among the mountains. Soon begins my retreat on Mt. Rainier in a Cozy Cabin.

Flaun's Fabric Pull Friday: Ocean View

On my trek across the country (from Tennessee to Washington), I will hopefully get to stop briefly and dip my toes in the Pacific ocean. This pull is inspired by my upcoming Ocean View.

See you next week!

Flaun's Fabric Pull Friday: Two for the Price of One

I skipped last week's Fabric Pull Friday, so this week, you get two for the price of one!

Our first pull is a slightly more traditional Christmas collection. Of course, I had to take a little leeway with the greens and how awesome is that Kaffe print hanging out in the reds?!

I'm Dreaming of a Traditional-ish Christmas
For our second pull, I'm taking inspiration from my upcoming trip across the country, in fact, the rest of my pulls for the year will be inspired by it; Next Friday, my friend of 25 years will be driving with me from Chattanooga to Seattle. It's a road trip on an epic scale! There will be laughter and tears, music, sky, plains, and mountains.

Flaun's Fabric Pull Friday: Let the Festivities Begin!

This week's pull was inspired by the upcoming season. It's bright, happy, and leans more toward winter than a specific holiday. It's a versatile stack that can be used year-round or to make your winter festivities brighter!

Flaun's Fabric Pull Friday: Autumn Sunset - And A Winner!

Last night, I went Exploring for a bit of inspiration. I was immediately grabbed by a picture by Rachel Brokaw: When Evening Falls. The colors, the balance, the bokeh, the contrast of the cool darkness and bright warmth all called my name. She has reserved her rights as a fabulous artist, so if you would like to see my inspiration photo, please click here to go to see her beautiful photograph.

Autumn Sunset
I'm always looking for inspiration. If you have an idea or request, please tell me in the comments below. I might choose yours for next week!

As promised, today brings the winner of my Quilter's Planner Mini giveaway, and that winner is Mary Honas!


Mary, please send me an email (flaun {at} ipleadquilty {dot} com) or a private message on my Facebook page with your mailing address. Congratulations!
