WOW – 2 posts in one day, but I thought that everyone would enjoy seeing some of the “goodies” I purchased lately to keep my sanity and to have inspiration to get back to making quilts!!!
The first thing is a new Item that Quilt In A Day (Eleanor Burns) is selling. It is basically a roll of plastic that is 1 1/4” wide on a spool and cut in strips to wrap around your thread spools to keep the thread from making a mess.
I am sure that every quilter (especially those that hand applique) will love this product and it works! I use this type of plastic that I purchase from JoAnns, etc in long sheets to cover my fabric stash in the Studio. Here is how it looks on some thread that would drive me nuts when I could not keep them from raveling project bag.
Next good is a great fat quart bundle of French General’s Le Beau Papillon. I am usually late in collecting certain fabrics and this is one. This is my 2nd French General bundles.
Now lets go to Sashiko Projects! Sylvia Pippen has great pre-printed projects and I really liked the two that I ordered. One is for Nordic Christmas Panel for 20XX and the other is a panel with Sashiko Sea Reef. Love them both!
Next is a preprinted block for hand quilting. I purchased 2 different ones from The Stencil Company. They had a great sale and I participated! They are both preprinted on a black back ground. Should be good practice for my hand quilting in 20XX!
And if the above wasn’t enough goodies that I did not need….Here are 2 books that were on sale with Connecting Threads. I also purchased Book 4 for EQ8 software and hopefully by 20XX I can design my own quilts! LOL
Now for the one that I had drooled over since Lynn from Sew’n Wild Oaks began working on the quilt. I found the fabric at Shabby Fabrics (and purchased 3 fat quarter bundles of 14 fat quarters each). I believe this will be adequate fabric to make this quilt. I normally do not use the same fabrics for quilt patterns, but this quilt screamed for the same fabric. You be the judge.
My list of ‘quilts to make’ has grown and I realize that at my age I may never get them all made, but I am going to give it Hell when I am finished recouping from eyelid correction by the end of July. Clay is doing well, but could the African’s keep their dust? It is interfering with our morning walk!
Hugs and have a great day!
