Oh my, can there be no end of the list of quilts that we want to make? I think not.
I have been cutting out my Farmhouse squares in preparation for the Summer Stars quilt pattern.
I had bought one of those “Scrap Bags” that MODA puts out and was able to get a lot of good use from the strips. Most of them had enough width to cut 2 3/4″ squares that I needed in a variety of prints. For the rest, I certainly had no problem getting 2″ squares out of them to the rest of the length. I found out at the end that there were a few of the prints that didn’t make it to the Scrap Bag.
I took two layer cakes and got all the 5″ squares I needed for the project and then had plenty left over to get my sampling of more 2″ squares.
I’m now moving on to cutting up the background required – using Bella White that matches really well.
BUT… I also bought the first FRIVOL to be released. Adding to my growing stash of Hello Darling fabric precuts.
You are paying for that cute tin and the pattern that I can figure out on my own, but I prefer it printed professionally. I also got the finishing kit from Fat Quarter Shop. I didn’t enroll in any monthly program. These items are pricey. I will pick and choose my favorite collections as we go along.
I have the perfect spot though… a recently cleared off area over my ironing board:
It will fit PERFECTLY here. Can’t wait to see it… but…
I have another project I am going to start on tonight. I’m going to see how quickly I can put together a pinwheel quilt for a new baby. I will be attending a reception for this newborn on Sept 10th. Let’s see if I can get it done! I’ll show pics as I go along… stay tuned!
All the best,
