I might have gotten a little carried away cutting veterans quilt kits the past 2 days but at least I'm prepared for the next several months of sewing with my quilt club!
Next I tackled a stack of patriotic batiks. I won a gift certificate for Fat Quarter Shop and decided to spent it on patriotic fabrics for veterans quilts. Of course I spent an additional $75 to get coordinating yardage. I added some batiks from my collection and have 3 quilts cut from these fabrics now.
I ended my cutting session with several pieces of leftover blue backing from the puppy quilt. I finally opened the rectangle Accuquilt die to cut enough for half the rectangles needed for this quilt. I didn't start looking for other fabric until I had cut the blue. I had a little panic because I didn't seem to have anything that I liked with the blue. But I went to the FQ drawers and pulled a warm side rainbow. I don't know how this quilt will be arranged, there are too many options. I could see myself getting a little obsessed with rectangles....
That's 6 kits and I need to stop this for a while. The sad thing is that the only difference that I can see in my stash is that I can get the lid on the plaid bin now. Otherwise, it looks exactly the same.
Now I'm going to do some sewing and quilting and get on with the placemats and the Jackie's Choice quilt for my cousin.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
