Here are my new projects, started about midnight last night. How many free patterns have you downloaded and never used? I decided to use this one, Garden Gate Plaids, from Andover Fabrics. (Click on the tab called "download" to find the pattern.) I ordered the green background a few minutes ago, and all the rest are in my stash. I started cutting fabric for the blocks last night.
While going through my stash I found a kit that I forgot I had. It's called "It takes a village", an african proverb. The kit uses, appropriately, African batik fabrics. I bought the kit and let it get buried for some reason. I took a break from cutting to add this blog post! I need coffee!
I'm amazed, simply amazed how quilting 'feels'. What a great way to relax and let the cares of the day fall away. I resolve to never go through life without UFOs.
Last, but not least, I picked out these fabrics for ... drum roll please... my bedroom! Imagine that? Making a quilt for myself??? Oooo, what a lovely idea! This pattern was downloaded from Quilter's Club of America. This company has a free online forum, I've made some wonderful friends there! It's a free forum, but if you decide to become a member, you get to download 400 free patterns, get discounts at fabric stores, they mail you free quilting magazines and more! This is the pattern, and the fabrics I chose from my stash last night!
