Remember I told you I was on a fabric diet. (read about it here if you missed it) Well the premise of the “fabric diet” was to buy less fabric. It’s been a huge success for me. I don’t think I’ve bought any fabric from an actual quilt store in month…(I think about 10 months) I’ve bought thrifted and auction fabric but none from a fabric store!
Well I caved. But it’s not for me.
The fabric is all for projects I’ll be gifting.
The fuzzy yellow is a tag blankies for the new grand babies that we are expecting.
The printed fabric will all be pillow cases. My friend Connie is the queen of pillowcase giving. I have loved the pillowcases she gave me. They always make me smile so when I saw these prints I just knew I needed to get the fabric. Check it out close up….This is baking themed.
This one is knitting themed.
This on is religious. I’m always looking for like “pick me up” things for my niece Jody as she fights through another round of chemotherapy. I think this is a pillowcase for her is PERFECT!!
I think the grandsons or childcare kiddos will get a pillowcase of this.
While I was on the site I saw a pattern for this quilt….
In a moment of weakness I bought the pattern. It came with my fabric order.
WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT in a pattern. This is the cover of the pattern.
There is absolutely not one single picture of the full quilt included in the pattern. Look at the cover of the pattern…that’s all you get. UGH.
I paged through all of the pattern…no picture. Well, there is a black and white image of how to put the blocks together…no color picture at all. ZERO.
What a huge disservice to quilters wanting to replicate the quilt with similar colors or for that matter anyone who buys the pattern. UGH.
I’d love to return it but it’s no fault of the Etsy shop owner who sold the pattern to me.
This has made me not want to make the quilt. UGH. It was a whim purchase I should have taken out of my cart….this only proves that point to me!!
So…with that, I’m back on my diet. I don’t know that this really breaks my diet or is a cheat even. This was all for gifting except the pattern. I’m simply making a fabric gift vs purchasing a gift. I’m no worried about it however it’s counted.
