You might remember my lack luster review from yesterday of Quilter’s Quarters in Independence, Iowa.
Well here’s what I found in those 7000 bolts of fabric.
I did buy about 7 quarter yard cuts of mystery fabric and they are already cut up.
Then I got this fabric. I thought it might be cute to fussy cut for a baby quilt some day.
I got this next piece with fussy cutting in mind too.
I love the little sayings on it. I think it could be cute to fussy cut a saying and then add more around it and make a pot holder or something.
I have it in the house now should the mood ever strike me to do something besides only quilts.
Needless for wool applique…a wedge ruler and also needless for fabric applique (not pictured). I hadn’t used applique needles before. I thought they were a gimmick. NOPE. The needles were life changing. Remember I’m applique-ing Bonnie Hunter’s quilt Daylilies? Well the needles are making that process MUCH less painful.
About the wedge ruler…I saw this pattern over at the blog Quilted Twins. (Picture courtesy of Quilted Twins) She calls the quilt Premium Labels. She used men’s shirts. She kept the labels in tack. She used the wedge ruler to make the wonky blocks.
I like the idea…I know it’s busy but still…I like it a lot in all of it’s busyness. I don’t know if I’d leave the labels on but the technique, fun different and something I’d love to try!! So I bought the wedge ruler.
If you haven’t been you REALLY should go over the Quilted Twins‘ page. It’s a fun place to spend time…there’s one section of fabric for sale, one section that’s blog and one section that I love browsing, FREE PATTERNS! Don’t fret if you decided to download one of the patterns. It will make you think you’re buying and have to pay for it but you don’t.
Becky has new patterns ALL THE TIME!!
…and that is today’s report.
