Misc blethering about fabric n’stuff

  • local MQG guild elections last week, now there is another past president to keep me company
  • I found 3.5m of Jay McCarroll “City Centre” in this colour way for THREE DOLLARS.


  • b0087dec294a569eced5f71c366d1948.jpg

It’s brand new, never washed. I think it looks like a disease under a microscope but it’s enough for a twin backing or I can re-sell it. B/c who wouldn’t snap up ~70$ worth of fabric for 3$?

  • I quilted a quilt for a friend last week. Trickiest mo-fo pantograph I’ve tried out. bear-paw_2.png

Ask me how I feel about this one. Wait, I’ll just tell you. Scared, intimidated, annoyed, pissed off, grudgingly okay, somewhat competent, totally zen. 81″ square quilt. Each pass of the panto was 9″ wide and took a FULL bobbin.

  • I have two quilt tops in progress, one the giant voile pluses, which is now in rows but needs to be in one piece like, yesterday, and the other is in 16 blocks and four borders and needs to be in one piece like, asap. These two quilts are 40% of my “big plans for 2019” – maybe I’m feeling more ahead than usual so therefore lost?
  • I think that’s about it for fabric stuff at this moment. I am reading more books than I have for the past couple of years so I’m pleased about that. Yay me!

  1. NICOLE!! Seriously, a disease?!!!! Umm, I think that fabric is pretty thank you very much. I still enjoy it too – a disease. HAHAHAHA! I’ll never look at it quite the same way. Kill joy. That panto looks like claws – scary, tear people apart claws. What kind of quilt did that go on? And, please tell us about how you feel about that mo-fo panto. HAHAHAHA! I can’t possibly guess. Thank you for the giggles this morning, and truly yay you for reading more. I love to read, but then quilting suffers. Why must I still work when there are so many other things I could be doing. Oh yeah, money. I’m not independently wealthy. ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. It’s been a while since I really read much, either, so I’m excited for you to be reading more again. I’ll get back to it one day, too, right?!? 🙂 What and awesome price to get all that fabric for. And wow, that pantograph looks intense and I’m glad you were able to feel totally zen by the end. That’s awesome!
