You might remember a bit ago I told you that I was finally going to use this fabric.
I was making a graduation quilt for someone and thought this fabric…and this pattern would be perfect together….
The problem….I couldn’t find the pattern in my house. I’ve made it several times. I know I wouldn’t have gotten rid of it. I thought I borrowed it to Kelli but she said no…UGH. So I bought the pattern again.
At the time I thought I would have all the time in the world and not be sewing masks like it was my full time job. I was so excited about a new project. I thought I might use black where the cream fabric is…I thought those little boxes would really POP if I did.
So…I ordered the black fabric.
Now that the pattern is here and the fabric is here. I got it out and read through it all. I was thinking I wouldn’t put a border on the quilt and make extra blocks. UGH. I don’t have enough dog fabric.
I bought the fabric as fat quarters from Wal-Mart probably five years ago. I bought 8…but alas, it’s not enough.
I searched a bit and can’t find it online. I was hoping Etsy or somewhere might have it but so far… no luck.
I messaged Kelli and told her my voes. She said she is sure she has a couple fat quarters. Hmm. That will help. I might end up having to put a border on the quilt. I can’t quite imagine what fabric would mix with black and the bright colored dogs. UGH. I thought I had this all figured out but I really don’t.
I have eight fat quarters right now…The pattern calls for 15..and that’s with the border that I’d actually like to not put on.
I’d like to at least be single bed sized.
The center blocks are 8 x 8 which makes terrible use of a fat quarter. Alas…
I’ve been thinking maybe I could just put a few large solid print blocks in the mix. That might be okay. I guess I’m on a waiting game to see what Kelli has…and I’m done sewing masks.
While I was at Atkinson Designs to get the Slideshow pattern, this jumped into my cart. I have an idea for this too. I have some fireman fabric…not a lot but some. I’m wondering if I have enough to make a quilt for the fireman breakfast next March. We’ll have to see.
If any of you have any suggestions, or a fat quarter of the fabric that you don’t mind parting with, please leave a comment.
