How many times have you heard:
I will not buy more fabric until I use what I have?
I've had this fabric forever and was waiting for just the right project?
Look what I found...I totally forgot I had that?! Or, I was wondering where that went too!
We may all be a little guilty of one or two of those statements! Mine would be I was waiting for just the right project (and having the time).
Two birthdays ago, my dear and lovely sister Debbrah sent this gorgeous pack of goodness to me. I love the colors, but wasn't sure what to do with them. I hadn't used pre-cut strips before.
I finally had enough! I have decorated around this bundle, moved it from place to place, shelf to shelf. My first real project of the year was going to involve these.
As soon as I picked the block I wanted to use, I cut each and every strip. It was so fun, I knew nothing could really go wrong. I was safe. I went with a very simple and perfect block for 2 1/2" strips.
|12 1/2" x 12 1/2"|
This is the block. See, so simple.
I pieced together an amazing back for this top! Once I get it quilted, binding on and washed I will show it all! Including a quick tutorial for the block! I promise. I have it partially finished right now!
I feel like you either love or hate batiks. Am I right? I don't hate batiks, I just don't use them much. I think they are gorgeous!
So, thank you Debbrah for the wonderful gift! You know what I love and it starts with an 'F'!
