Fabric Out-Fabric In
I've been trying to get some projects finished before the end of the year. This is one of the flower pounding pieces I did at our guild's workshop a month ago. I hope to get the other two done as well.
The Burgoyne Surrounded is in the final phase - borders!! My Bane!! I just have the last large floral border. I am going to have to do some real fiddling to get the piecing to match up to make the length I need as I only have just so much fabric. There is a piece JUST large enough for the binding and I have a fabric for the back. More fabric out.
We were reminded to bring bags with us to the next quilt guild meeting for our swap/share/free night - I brought a tub. Well, it had a lot of books, magazines, and patterns in it to take for the night - BUT....
I filled it back up with some plushies, flannels, and kid print scraps....
Some yardage that no one wanted. Yes, I waited until pretty much everyone went thru and selected before I browsed. We have a pillowcase drive for Christmas and I plan to use some of these with things off the shelf.
My camera batties are low, thus the poor pictures. Some floral scraps in about FQ size.
This was a mix of shirting, ticking, and light weight denim. This fills my basket of a planned project for January.
A baggy of Home Decor weight swatches perfect for small bags and wristlets.
A box of homespuns with a basket project started. There was a pattern with this, but someone wanted just the pattern - I can figure this out, so let her have the pattern.
A box of American Jane and some 'real' 30's fabrics - oh, boy!!
Three of this panel. I tried to convince everyome that these make for quick baby quilts - no takers so I took them all.
This adorable panel is going to fun to add borders to for a quick quilt.
A cute tin full of buttons, threads, and I only took one pattern (set).
And these were from my ventures to quilt shops. The FQ bundle is 'Quill' by Three Sisters (when I had my Juki fixed) - the owl plushie and cute chicken fabric I bought when I took the landscaping class.
I think I am ready for next year with new fabrics and plenty of new scraps (I have all those bags, too). Oh, and I hit a thread sale on-line - yup, ready for 2018!
