I got some fabric this week….but I didn’t buy it. I won it. There’s two half yard cuts from Quilt Taffy. Every Thursday the gals over at Quilt Taffy have a little give away. This week it was two 1/2 yard cuts of my choice. These are from Moda’s Make Life line. I have two charm packs that I need to use up and this extra fabric might just be the push I need to use them up. THANKS gals…Oh the are having a HUGE sale this weekend…if you need to add to your stash.
The mail man also delivered a package from Amazon…I new quilt book, Nickel Quilts and Borders by Pat Speth.
I have three of Pat’s other books and have liked all. Pat does EVERYTHING with five inch squares. Here’s a link to my favorite quilt of her’s that I made. I am not a real fan of that as it sometimes isn’t efficient to cut fabric into charms first but I love her quilts….no surprise as they are all totally SCRAPPY. If I like the quilt but not the cutting method, I just cut it out my way instead of the five inch square way. This book is FILLED with border ideas. I know some of my quilts could use a little border boost. The front cover says that there are 260 different borders in the book…here’s a sampling.
WOW…I will be looking and studying these borders for a LONG time. My challenge with borders is always the math…hopefully she has some suggestions for that too.
Back to my stash report….
