if you use a gift certificate??? I don't think so...and here's my case. I had a gift certificate for a quilt shop about 30 miles from here. I've had it since my birthday in Oct. In January 2007, the shop changed hands, and the new gal was willing to honor the punch cards and gift certificates up to a point. April 1st was that point! So Betsy and I hit the freeway to do some serious plastic damage...LOL, mostly her, since I was going to use my gift. The first pic is sale fabrics where you are obligated to buy a yard. The two with polka dots are FQs to go with a cat panel.
Second picture is all FQs. With these fabrics a FQ is plenty for my kind of piecing. Most of them are from the 'Kool Kats' line.
I'm really excited by all of them, something completely new to sew with!! Gosh! I was on the low fiber diet all of 2006, buying only a few Civil War t ype fabrics to begin that quilt, and a few novelty prints for the graduation quilt.
This is my first fabric of this year..*VBS* And it was on a gift card...yah!!!
Betsy and I began one of our 'swaps' in January. We are making broken dishes this time, in brights and blacks..but not exlcusively. Other odd balls are allowed to wander in, and often do. She cuts 2 5" squares of each fabric she's using and makes 2 broken dishes blocks. One comes to me and one is hers. I'm doing the same. We'll keep going as long as it makes sense to us, the block finishes at 4.5" so it will take quite a few to make a quilt. Our quilts will be the same, but different. I won't know what layout she is using til I see her top, and she won't know about mine...it's alot of fun..*VBS*
I still have more to do on the baby quilt since I missed several days of sewing. It might not get there til after the baby does, at this rate. *VBS* I'm off to cut a few 5" squares from these new fabrics and sew a few broken dishes in bright along with those baby colored ones.
