Last week I did a little shopping. Okay, I did a lot of shopping. The last time a friend and I headed to the LQS, we arrived to a sign saying that they were closed for a couple weeks due to the holiday season. This time, that wasn’t a problem.
On the list:
The Brown Quilt—For an event in June
Dark Brown Border fabric (3 yds + more for binding)
Light Brown Border fabric (1 3/8 yds)
Purchased: 5 yds of the Dark Brown & 3 yds of the Light Brown
Here is the dark & light with a small section of the quilt center showing.
Next, the Bright Quilt, based on Diamond Delight found in Strip Clubbing by Cozy Quilt Designs.
On the list:
Background Fabric 3 7/8 yds and 3/4 yds for the binding.
Additional fabric: more variety needed
Purchased: 5 yds of Deep purple for border and binding
6—1/4 yd cuts for variety
Here are the strip sets that are going with the border and additional fabrics.
Lastly, back in November, Alf & Lily Creations graduated an gave away a gift card to Connecting Threads. After Christmas, I picked out some fabric. The pink/purple fabric is 6 yds for a backing. This quilt was scheduled for the quilters today….she has the flu and it is rescheduled for next week.
The blue is something that I will use in a scrap quilt as a border. The next two are cuts that might end up in the Diamond Delight. The last 2 are batiks. The green/brown one was a possible border for “The Brown Quilt”. The new one above goes much better, but with several green batiks in the stash, a quilt is just asking to leave the stash and find a home.
Total income yardage: 28.5
This is definitely not my typical style. My motto is use what you have, buy what you need. Most of this I needed!
