A couple of years ago I won some sort of something from Molli Sparkles; he sent me these seven FQ. I liked them and found them interesting but shelved them.
Last summer I had pulled them out to possibly use on another project. I didn’t, ultimately, but was inspired with another idea.
I pulled co-ordinating fabrics from my stash:
I bought another few fabrics during a sale in the late fall.
I also ordered some 5m of Kona Indigo from Mad About Patchwork:
But I didn’t have enough prints. I asked my friend Gabrielle if I could ask for bits during the “get your quilty wishes filled” on instagram. She talked me out of it, mostly by offering me some of her fabrics.
Gabrielle made me a pseudo jelly roll:
But then she overthought it, and brought me some more fabrics.
If you’re counting, this will add up to at least 12m in the quilt, but since I haven’t cut anything yet it’s just a hell of a lot of fabric that’s all new to me. I had better get a new blade and get cutting!

Last week I was trying to decide the absolutely perfect binding for my polaroid quilt (surprise, that one’s nearly done!).
I had a few ideas but then I had another idea, an exciting idea, a wondrous idea, except I was short fabric for it. I rearranged my limited spare time to make it across town to the only store with the fabric in stock (at a whopping 15$/m for solids no less). Bought enough to bind the entire quilt.
Got home to find an email saying that fabric would be on sale on the weekend. Sigh.
Laid it out to test as a binding, and hated it. Sigh.
I have .4m of Kona Iron if anyone wants it. Linking up with Sunday Stash, because hey, I should be able to get something good out of this.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
At 50$/m, it’s a good thing I only need a bit.
Four-way stretch lycra, in gold holographic glitter.
The most wonderful time of the year is of course Hallowe’en. Can you guess what type of costume requires these fabulous fabrics?
And while I was at the fabric store I bought this. Wasn’t going to miss it a THIRD time. No plans for it, I just really like this print. Half a metre and only 3.50$!

The guild July meeting isn’t a meeting, it’s an outdoor potluck picnic. It’s a good time, a much more casual time; we play games and get to know each other a little better.
This year, instead of the modern FQ toss and the ugly fabric swap challenge we usually do, we had the ugly FQ toss. I didn’t actually bring fabric (all my fabric is still packed from the move) but as I wandered about admiring the others’ fabrics, I saw Gabrielle’s fabric. It was chartreuse with polka dots and purple, orange, and magenta flowers. Sounds like a train wreck right? I thought it was wonderful.
She offered to give the piece she had left at home but long story short, Bethany won the toss and got to choose from all the fabrics. She chose Gabrielle’s, and gave it to me!!!!
Yay Gabrielle! Yay Bethany and her softball training and her generous spirit! Yay Dawna, Bethany’s mom who gave Bethany fabric to participate!
In all its glory…
This fabric will be perfect for my black and white eye bleed quilt. Just need to get started on that.
