Designing Quilts can be both frustrating and fun. And you find more fabric on the shelves then you remember you had!! I spent most of yesterday trying this and that with Williamsburg Beauty and ended up with piles of fabric all over the place. I found a whole bundle that I had got from Craftsy on sale last year that I had not used – 7 one yard pieces that came in one bundle Riley Blake “French Courtyard” some of these pieces or all of them could be used in this quilt! I had to pull them off the shelf and start to look through them.
I like that stripe print – but with two one yard pieces of slightly different colors will it work – we will see! Stay tuned LOL – the hexies will wait until I get further I do believe I want to play with the next border first and see how it will all tie in together. That is the trouble with designing as you go – well it work or won’t it and are you willing to change things up. This was once on a clearance sale that I got for about $5 a yard.
More pulled from the project box that was set aside to use for this quilt – what do I have?
And the table is a mess once again.
The Halloween Cat that Melanie was making a couple weeks ago is finished. It turned out really cute – it is for Aniya.
Craftsy is having a sale on supplies – this sale ends October 16 at midnight. You will find that since they redid their web page and from the many sales they have had over the last six months or so that a lot of products are out of stock. I read an article on line that said that Craftsy is switching more over to their own line of fabric and yarn – I have a feeling before the end of the year they will be restocking and surprising us all with what they have come up with. I have been asked how do you order so that the commission from the sale comes to me — You just click on the Craftsy ad on the top of the right side bar or on the word Craftsy at the top of this paragraph the code for me is embedded in them and I am credited with the small commission – it cost you nothing. And I do thank you! The small amount of money I make pays for my quilting habit and of course helps our retirement budget now that Mike is done with his contract job and back to being full time retired once again.
