At work today, I simply could not resist these two fabrics any longer - they'd been calling to me softly, and so far, I'd been strong.
I love love love the border print in front, it just speaks to me. One thing disappoints me though, there are three border repeats across the width, and a half repeat at each selvedge edge. The manufacturer really could have put the four repeats across the fabric if they wanted to. Just bunnies like me fall in love with the stuff and have to own it regardless.
And the fabric in the background is a back for a special quilt. I will have quite a bit leftover, and I can really see myself using it in a lot of scrap quilts. Super fun.
I will have to show some restraint for a little while - we have some big ouchy expenditure coming up in the next few weeks. Appliances growing old and all that. Ouch.
Also, I had a couple of questions asked of me recently - from people with no-reply on their email addresses. Some about the thread I shared recently (and thank you to Emma for the email update!) - they wanted to know where to get it. I get mine at Quiltaholics here in South Australia. Emma updated me to let me know that she had found it in multi-packs at Spotlight - and it's called QA Embroidery Thread.
There were also several questions about the size to cut the triangles for the cross blocks. I have been cutting 6.5" squares and then cutting them apart diagonally twice. You can then use any size strips and squares to add the crosses. Works really well.
I know we've all heard this before, but it really helps to have your email address selected in your profile. It means that when you ask a direct question, it's easy to give you the answer you're looking for.
Well that's it from me - a little more quilting to do before making tomorrow's lunches and then bed - can't believe it's September already ... where is the year going??
