Fiber Friday

Earlier this week I made a note to purge more fabric and quilt projects during spring break.

The next day, my friend, Lori, sent an email asking if I wanted to do a quilt along with her. She was going to make this quilt . I had mentioned that I had some of those plaids in my stash. When I pulled out the box marked plaids, I found a paltry selection and remembered that I had used up most of my plaids to make donation quilts. But what about my civil war fabrics? That box is not overflowing but there is enough to make a lap quilt. I was inspired. I turned on Amazon Prime, dusted off my rotary cutter, and jumped in. I decided to make 8″ blocks instead of 12″. At the end of two episodes of Tin Star, I had two star and two 16 patch blocks. I think tomorrow I can get at least 12 more sets done. Thanks Lori for giving me the nudge. So happy you emailed BEFORE I purged my fabrics!

And btw- I did get my sleeves started and narrowed down the hat pattern choices.

Hope there is some fiber in your Friday.

  1. I am so itching to start a new quilt. I just clicked on your link and bought this pattern. I can purge some fabrics from my stash as well. I want to be a better blogger in 2018, so stay tuned!

  2. I look forward to seeing your quilt…is that a die cut machine you have? I bought a Silhouette several years ago, ostensibly because I could cut fabric for quilt blocks…I need to pull it out and put it to use…thanks for the hint!
    Cheers~
