Yesterday my mom and I (and Abbie, who was a huge help – NOT) went to Joann’s. My MIL had gotten me a gift card for there for Mother’s Day and I they were having good sales so we went to check it out.
I got 2 quilting pattern books for 40% off each of them. One is for charm packs and one is for jelly rolls. (For those unfamiliar with quilting terms, a charm is a 5x5 piece of fabric and a jelly roll is 2 1/2 x 40” strips of fabric, as seen at the bottom of the Jelly Roll Quilts book.)
This is the pattern I plan on using for the fabric I got,
and this is the fabric I chose for that quilt.
I’ll try to take pictures of the other fabric I’ve bought for various quilts soon. I’m planning on doing this quilt-along next, and I have the layer cakes for it already, I just need to find binding and backing for it. I’ll probably wait until I have the quilt top done to do that though so I can just take it to the store with me to compare colors.
I just love fabric and creating stuff with fabric. I wish I had more time to do it and was better at it, but even though I do it rarely and I’m not very good, it’s fun to try. And it’s fun to have a stack of quilt tops that I’ve made to look at.
**If you haven't done so already, don't forget to enter my giveaway!!**
That sounds great! I got a sewing machine a couple of years ago, and I have had a lot of fun teaching myself to sew small projects. I do wish I knew how to sew a quilt, but it seems like a lot to undertake (plus I already have lots of other craft hobbies I don't make enough time for). I think when Lucy is older I'd like to learn with her. Good Luck!
