Here is the latest BOM from www.craftsy.com. It's a modern looking dresden plate. I love it. It is so easy to make and I think it looks so bold. I really could make a whole quilt using this block in one day easily.
Now, on to my ebay find. I love shopping ebay. I am a buyer only. I have sold two item on ebay but they were things I needed to sell and what better place than ebay? So, while browsing through the fabric one day, I came across these blocks. 38 of them. All for $8. What a bargain.
It's called "Collection for a Cause Friendship 1850" by Howard Marcus for Moda. It's an Antique Quilt Reproduction, Ninth in a series and it finishes at 78"x78". There are 25 applique blocks in this quilt. It is a very pretty quilt. It came in it's own box and all the fabric was individually wrapped. I love Fat Quarter Shop. It's my all time Fav!!
Then when I laid it all out, this is what I had:
I love quilt kits. I don't know why, but I do. I know other people do too because they sell them in magazines and at local quilt stores and at online stores. So, I know other people are buying them. I have sooooooo many quilt kits. So many. My husband bought me three for Christmas and I haven't even started on them. I have bought quite a few since then and I had over 20 before I received those. I just can't help myself. I think I like seeing the quilt done and liking it so much that I decide to buy the kit. And I don't have to figure out what fabrics to buy.
But, I do buy a lot of fabric. I have whole fabric lines. I don't buy just one piece of fabric very often. I usually buy a jelly roll, charm pack, layer cake and yardage of a fabric line or I buy lots of yardage of one fabric line. Here is one of my bookcases full of fabric lines.
I have doctor bags, rubbermaid bags, fat quarter bags, huge tubs, wicker baskets, dressers, and a storage unit all full of fabric and quilt kits. I have to manuever (sp?) around my sewing room. There are wicker baskets full of fabric all over the floor. There are sections I can't get to without having to move things. It's bad.
I have a very large closet in my sewing room that has some boxes of things and some clothes hanging in it. I need to put those boxes in my storage shed and put the clothes in my bedroom and make shelves in the closet and get organized. Or get wired baskets! I would love to have shelves of wired baskets. Those are deluxe!!
Well, I'm still having the giveaway. Monday I will announce the winner and then if you supply me with you email, I will mail you the table runner. I have 5 people so far. 5 more than I thought. Thanks for reading my blog.
I know my pics aren't up to par but I only have my cell phone to use. I just haven't bought a nice camera yet. Need to get a good camera!
