I like Marshall's prices. And since we all know what we use the most, it only makes sense to buy bolts. And 108" is good for piecing too. I buy from them all the time. They ship pretty darn fast too.
Sort of! Hopefully this will let me add a few pix for illustration. It's like a calendar/planner, but creative. Not everyone does so much art but I love that part!!
Just completed these two smaller scrap quilts and emptied a bin by doing so. There are a couple of pieces of fabric that I will use on the backing of one of these. Almost Identical. 48 x 58 and 53 x 53
There is no specific pattern for this.. Just 4-Patch blocks with wonky sides. I use the Jodi Barrow's Square in a Square method for the sides.. Which are cut after sewing to the 4-patch using her ruler on the 60 degree angle. But you can use any ruler that has a 60 degree line on it. make a couple of scrap ones and practice with the angle part. Here's Jodi's video on this angle.
Good to get one UFO Bin emptied and at least in flimsy form. I'll use these for practicing FMQ or Stencil quilting.
So cute! And look at you emptying scrap bins! Wow!
I like that. What is the name of the pattern.?
That is what I thought you meant. Nice for those with an artistic talent.
Does this pattern have a name. I can see it would use up lots of scraps. I'm with you on emptying a UFO bin. My goal is to get mine past the flimsy state. Of course, while finishing up quilts, I also start some new ones. It is my nature.........
Tutorials are fun...the way I can do it :P
very nice. My scraps are actually in color sorted ziplock bags. feels weird having so few scraps. I'm sure I'll generate more soon
I've been order wide backing from Connecting threads for several years, specifically one of the whites, to use for piecing. It has a very nice weight and drape. It doesn't feel at all like many backings. But then I recently ordered a couple more to use as borders and noticed something. The wide backs that are connecting threads brand use a very nice greige, but the two I purchased that were "designer name brand" were not near as nice, more like the rough woven ones from Joann. I went back and looked at the backing from CT that I liked and yup, they were all Connecting Threads brand. Interesting that Micheal Miller and windham were using less quality for the base fabric. CT regularly puts the backing on sale, genereally $13 per yard, which works out to less than $5 per yard of regular fabric, pretty sweet deal.
