Don't forget... today is the last day to enter my giveaway for a little fabric birdie -- the post is here and entry is a quick comment that mentions a happy thought; go go go!!
The winner will be announced later this evening!
There is something weepy eyed about cutting into your first ever jellyroll. I have had this lovely cheerful fabric roll sitting on my desk for a few weeks now.
I pet her. I talk to her. I tell her she will make a beautiful quilt some day. I have even used her as a prop in some of my photos.
But it was time.
Time to tug on that ribbon and unroll this beauty so that I could begin plotting for what I would turn her into. Now that Christmas gifties are made and wrapped and my sewing table is somewhat returned to a cleaner state.
This feels a bit like a strip tease, doesn't it?
Fandango, your fun and festive. I am so inspired by your prints and wild wonderful bold colors!
The ribbon is off!
She begins to untwirl. More and more prints are beginning to show!
All laid out on my ironing board for planning!
I do have a plan in mind. I have begun cutting. I should have my first block assembled tonight. I am aiming for a large twin sized quilt. I'm not going to say another word... but you can expect to see more of Ms. Fandango in the very near future!
I also got a really cool package in the mail yesterday from the lovely Happy Cottage Quilter. I found the Happy Cottage a few weeks ago and knew I would want to see more so I quickly added her to my RSS feed and followed her.
And what do you know.. I was her 400th follower. Yes, the big 4-0-0!!
Just look at this amazing package she sent in thanks! A pretty hand written card...
A book that is already teaching me so many fun ways to use the insane amount of fat quarters I have collected recently.
Just look at this project you can see why I am really going to enjoy diving in and picking out a project to try! Looks a bit like a wiggle worm quilt!
And there's more! I know I felt like I was opening such a treat! Fabrics!! Bold, girly, rock my pants fabrics!! Now you know what is sitting on my desk getting the pets in place of Ms. Fandango!
