Great weather here in South Texas and hopefully friends in the North will soon have beautiful Spring weather and no more snow until next Winter!
I really do not have anything to show, BUT alas, I finally decided that I really needed to have a fabric washing week-end. Now that doesn’t seem like a lot of work, but I had an overload of fabric that had been sitting in a chair for about 5 months which is way to long. Now anything over a yard is easy to wash, trim threads, and fold unless ironing is required. (I always figure that I would have to press it when I use it in a quilt).
I cannot say that about fat quarters! What a mess! I like to purchase them from Whittle’s when they have them on sale, or purchase the brown bag of mixed reproduction fabrics. I would like to make a black and red quilt and had been building a stash. Black reproduction fabrics are hard to find sometimes. Here is the stack of fabric I washed, trimmed, and ironed.
These are the ‘over’ 1 yard pieces. Mostly purchased for Reproduction quilts like Di Ford’s. Found them on sale on line and just could not pass them up!
Then it was time to wash a group of fat quarters. These were purchased from Whittle’s and I was surprised to find that I have a great selection of the Garibaldi line in Red and Blacks! I have plenty to make a quilt now in reds and blacks!
Next are a group of P&B ‘Mesh’ fabric line and boy do I know which quilt these will be used in!!!! Absolutely beautiful!
I see some stars in my future with this fabric!!! In fact, I ordered 2 more fat quarter bundles of the fabric. P&B is one of the fabric companies that I love. Can always depend on getting great fabric from them.
These were the remaining fat quarters from group that I ordered. I was a 2 day effort to get all of the washing and ironing completed, so today I finished up the remaining FQ’s and have taken it easy. Doing some hand work!
I am working on Block 4 of Nesting, borders for Mountmellick and still hoping to get to some hand quilting on Indian Summer. I think I have a bad case of Spring Fever, just wanting to not get in a hurry about anything!
Have a wonderful week! Enjoy stitching!
