This past weekend, I finished cutting the remaining two blocks (and made one of those) from my 12 Days of Christmas BOM. Additionally, I cut the pieces from the finishing kit including lattice strips and parts for wonky stars.
The kits from Fat Quarter Shop are very generous so I actually have quite a bit of leftover fabric pieces. I had also purchased a layer cake of the fabric so have some number of squares that I've not used. I was contemplating using this fabric scraps for the Jacob's Ladder quilt-along sponsored by my blog friend the Empress of the Universe. However, as much as I love the fabric, I decided to package it up nicely and store it away perhaps until next year. Almost too much of a good thing at this point.
Instead, I found this fabric in my stash!
I purchased these when my local quilt store went out of business and got the fabric at 50% off.
- The tan is Luna Notte by 3 sisters for Moda.- 1 yard.
- The red is Rouenneries by French General for Moda - 2 yards
- The green is Rue Saint Germain by Robyn Pandolph for RJR - 2 yards.
I will make this as a 2 color quilt with the red and tan. (I found another yard of the tan online). (I didn't actually start cutting the fabric - just enjoyed looking at it.)
(Boy, do I miss my local store. The woman that ran it had wonderful taste. Three different lines and these fabrics will look beautiful together. When I buy on-line - which is what I do now - I tend to keep a project within a particular line or designer because I can not really match colors on line.)
