And away we go:
Top of Mom’s quilt. This weekend I’ll get the backing.
These did not turn out so well. 1. The polka dot strawberry needs to be much larger, pattern suggested 5-1/2″ square, I think it needs more like a 7-1/2″ square. And I inserted the cording in the wrong spot. Boo hiss.
My local quilt shop is closing, I’ve been miserable since I heard. I stopped by and hit the closing sale.
That’s the pattern (Yoyoville by Bunnyhill Designs) & the fabrics (minus the plain white) I’ll be using the make it. The charm squares for the yoyos are Verna which is a modern print and I’m mixing it with 30’s repro prints. Mostly, a couple others jumped in there. But the colors are deep hot pink, blue, green, yellow, orange and a smattering of bunny brown.
I stopped by my LNS and cleaned up in the clearance bins. Everything I bought was from the scrap fabric bins and everything else was 50 or 75% off.
Merry Noel & Counting Bats have the embellishment packs too. 🙂
7 of the 9 pieces of linen were 25cents. Yes they’re ornament size cuts, but TWENTY FIVE CENTS. The quilting fabrics in front were from the closing sale, 50% off. I been in love with the one on the left since it came in the shop (I bought all she had left) and the Chinese style print will most likely appear on the Welcome To The North Pole quilt. On a Christmas quilt? you’re thinking. Yes, one of the buildings is a Chinese restaurant. Another kit from the quilt shop for a little birthday banner (the book containing the pattern was a gift for my birthday last year). And I stopped at Sally’s and had to buy 3 nail polishes because well it made the wallet free. The reason I went there was that bottle of “instant acrylic”, I’ve read good things about it on the polish blogs. They’re saying it makes your nails super strong.
And last but most certainly not least!
Cheryl gifted me with the kit! of Snow Queen’s Slipper. We’re going to make it a stitch/finish along (maybe next month). Thank you Cheryl!
