With the end of the school year, I fell into a black hole. I think I am emerging from it. I hope I am emerging. I occasionally fall into these black holes. Fortunately, they aren't caused by depression, just busyness that has to take precedence over quilting. I am looking forward to finding my sewing machine again. I wonder if she is still there?
Actually, last week I quilted and bound a baby quilt using some of Moda's patch fabric. Have you seen this stuff?
It comes and goes in popularity. I don't think any of their new lines have it. The squares are actually sewn together. It is a cheater cloth that doesn't look like a cheater cloth because the squares are not just printed on, they are sewn together. My husband's cousin was having a baby shower, and her mother, not unexpectedly, asked me to quilt 4 baby quilts for her. Of course, I did, but that left little time for me to make a quilt. The solution -- patch fabric! I keep some on hand just for occasions like this. The one above, I have used for several wedding quilts. It was 54" wide, so 2 yards made a nice throw. I have another one that is pastel pinks, yellows, blues, etc. Perfect for a baby girl. It was 45" wide, so I cut it 40" long and wa-lah! Baby quilt!
Hope your life isn't too busy to spend a few minutes with fabric!
