In the meantime, I have been keeping my hands and my brains occupied with some easy sewing. I've had this infant border print in my stash for the last 2 1/2 years, and was never quite sure what to do with it. I played around in EQ7 and came up with a fairly easy, but effective, design, using some of the fabrics that I have bought in the last couple of months..
We don't have any babies, that we know of, arriving in the family in the near future. But it never hurts to a have a baby quilt on hand, just in case. It has one more row of four patches to go on the top. Then it will be surrounded by a 1.5 inch border of the green, and then each side is going to get some flying geese, with the goose being a dark blue and the sky being the same yellow as in the four patches. A fast and easy reduction in the stash that has been building up here.
My last order of fabric came in the mail yesterday.
A gorgeous collection of fossil fern prints. There are 90 fat quarters in this box, which computes out to 22.5 yards. YIKES!! My first though was that these are an appliqe-ers dream. Then I thought they would make a great rainbow something. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them, right now, but they sure are pretty. I'm thinking some of it will go into finishing off the My Tweets quilt I was working on a couple of years ago. This is the last of the fabric orders, for a while. No more fabric purchases. I've put myself on a diet, at least until I have some substantial used numbers to show. I wonder how long the diet will last.......
