A bit ago I told you all that I wanted to make a quilt using this fabric….
It was a Walmart fat quarter only fabric. I originally bought it because I thought it was so stinking cute…and I love dogs. My intention was to make a quilt for the Humane Society benefit with it.
Then I got thinking about making a graduation quilt with it….
Then I thought of this pattern.
The problem was I didn’t have enough of the dog print fabric. So…I said something to all of you and WHAM. I got more fabric just like that.
Someone messaged me and said someone on Ebay had 4 fat quarters. I immediately went and bought them. Then some came in my mail….
I ended up with this…
My problem…I don’t know who all sent me fabric so I can’t thank them. AGH!!!!!!!! I’m so bummed. Here’s how it happened. I had the notes and envelopes on my kitchen counter. One pile was blog readers who sent money for the postage fund..the other was of people who sent fat quarters.
When I’m at the computer working on the blog I wear reading glasses. When I’m moving about, I use my regular glasses.
Last week I wrote the “in the mail post” I picked up the envelopes and wrote about the people who sent money to help with postage (which I so appreciate). Then I took the letters set them on the island, made the deposit for the money and set that aside to take to the bank the next time I took Rosie on a walk. I ended up getting distracted and doing something else. I was still wearing my reading glasses. I was lazy and didn’t exchange my glasses as I thought I was only going to be away from the computer for a second. Well then I went to the bathroom and after that the phone rang. I was distractedly talking to Kelli and tidying while I talked. I ended up throwing the wrong pile of notes in the garbage because when I went to write this post, there were the notes from the blog readers who had sent postage donations but the notes and envelopes from the people who sent fabric were gone. Oh my word. I’m so embarrassed. THANK YOU so much to the people who sent fabric. Someone sent me a note and asked if I got their package..I said no. Now I’m wondering if that person sent fabric. Oh my. One would think if I wasn’t doing childcare I could keep all this straight. I guess not. I’m so sorry and greatly appreciate the fabric.
Well I ended up using my Bella Solids card and found a matching black. I ordered it and it came.
Then a blog reader contacted me and told me Whittles had some fabric they thought would work for a border for the quilt. I agreed but didn’t order it right away. I went to order if two days later the striped print was the only one they had left. I don’t know if that will be a border or part of a backing or the binding or some combination.
…and honestly, I now don’t even know if I’m going to use that pattern. A week or two ago I reposted this pattern that we designed for Moda Bake Shop several years ago….
I started wondering if maybe I’d rather make this pattern. I have to check and see if this would make better use of the fabric.
…and then I found this that I had designed.
Hmm. I just don’t know what I want to do now with the fabric. I need to finish cleaning my sewing room and then I’m making a decision. What do you all think? What would you make?
