The pattern and fabric line is called "I Love Snow" by Shelly Comiskey for Henry Glass. It's the first flannel quilt i have made and it will be great to use this winter.

Here is some fabric I purchased to make a baby quilt for my girlfriends first grandbaby ... her name will be Ellie when she arrives in January ... I am going to use the Summer Squares pattern from Moda Bake Shop and plan to applique ELLIE in the big white strip and hopefully it will turn out ... I have never appliqued before, so this will be a first ... if you have any tips, PLEASE feel free to leave them!

So...if you have never been to JEllen's House of Fabric and you live in Ohio or near Cleveland ... you MUST go ... Joyce's shop is absolutely adorable! Joyce is such a very sweet lady and to top it off, her prices are fabulous!!! If you saw my last post i showed a bunch of the blue and purple's from Central Park by Kate Spain ... well i bought that at JEllen's too :O) Below are 8 yards of American Valor by Red Rooster that I purchased from JEllen's ... she had a sale this week on all red, white and blue fabric, buy one yard and get one yard free ... and the fabric was $8 a yard ... can you say WOO HOOO!!!

Last week while shopping with my cousin i purchased this pure yumminess ... don't ask me why, but i luv this fabric in these colors ... and it's soooo not me :O)
So here is what i have decided ... my 2012 resolution will be to purchase no fabric except if I need it to finish a quilt like backing or binding ... and in 2012 all the quilts i make will be made from my stash ... ugh ... it sounds good now, but we'll see how good i do when they come out with all those fabulous fabric lines :O) The one thing i'm afraid of ... i'll stock up on even more fabric before 2012 arrives! Oh, such problems!!
Have a wonderful 4th of July everyone!

So a few months ago I joined the Star Quilt Along with Piece N Quilt ... I made the first star, then when the second star came out I figured I'd wait till the third and fourth star came out and make them at the same time ... well when the fourth star came out, I didn't like it ... I don't like making blocks/quilts where I have to use a template...it's not that I probably can't, I've just never done it and don't really care to try...so I thought well, maybe I won't do the quilt along...then once again I changed my mind and decided I'd make the blocks that I liked and for the blocks I don't care for, I'll just make another block that I do like .... so here are my 3 blocks ... I should have 5 blocks done, but I'm going to wait and see the other blocks that come out and make the last 2 needed later...I really like these blocks and I used Butterfly Garden by Kansas Troubles and I just luv luv luv that fabric ...

So...have you ever purchased fabric, set it aside, then made a quilt out of it that you absolutely loved ... and wished you had bought tons of the fabric? I'm that way with Decadent Victorian by Moda ... it's so pretty i wish i had bought yardage of it, but i only bought a jellyroll and some sage green yardage ... I did see a 5" jellyroll consisting of 36 cuts for $63 on ebay ... that equals 5 yards of fabric, but that seems like alot...
