I just can’t believe how fast this year is going…….one day the years will slow down and I will start getting more constructive things done with my days. My hand dyed kit didn’t arrive this week……so I don’t have to count it as stash…yet. Today was my normal quilt shop pick and drop day…….do you know how hard it is to resist buying fabric when you are in a fabric shop…..really tough…..really tough.
One of the treasures that jumped into my shopping bag today was a very very gorgeous peace of cotton/silk blend sateen…….oh is it luscious…..the only tough part was deciding what color. So I’m going to make a quilted tree skirt…I picked this to die for olive green….I’ve had the stencil for years so now its finally going to be used and I’ll have a tree skirt for Christmas that matches the living room. So on my list for this week…..mark the fabric!!!! So to the add column plus 1.25 yards.
At quilt shop #3 (I got out of #2 with nothing, thank God) there were some great looking blacks with gold metallic. …..I found a very cute pattern at Houston so what good is a pattern without fabric……I actually have a bunch left from another project so I can call part of this a stash project…..so to the add column…… plus 1.5 yards.
In the use column…. ..a whole lot of 9 patches are made……so I cut a bunch of strips and started sewing…..usually I don’t count until the top is completed but for this project I’m going to count as I go……so for this project I have cut 4.5 yards…….I’m really mixed on whether or not to show the project. I’m making it from a picture I seen……I haven’t purchased the pattern, heck I don’t even know the name of the quilt…..I’m just going to call it “A whole bunch of 9 patches”.
How do you all feel about that????? Am I violating a copyright by making a quilt without buying the pattern???? I know there will be a bunch of different opinions both for and against so tell me how you feel, your opinion will be greatly appreciated.
