I'm sure if you visit your LQS (local quilt store) often then you've these fabrics from MODA. Aren't they beautiful?! I think they're called Three Sisters? I can't remember exactly... I've had them over a year now and still haven't cut into them yet...
My "not so local" LQS (but nearest to me) store has a buyer card that they punch off for each time you spend $5 worth.. or maybe it's $10? I don't remember but I keep it with me in my wallet at all times b/c after the card is full the neon Pink card is worth $25 at their store! :) Who doesn't love FREE money?
Last year I spent my card on my first ever "jelly roll" and have had it sitting around ever since.
I loved the quilt hangin in the store but they didn't have any patterns left for it - so thankfully I remembered to write down the name and came home and found it on eBay for sale and purchased it under the buy it now. I think I paid under $8.00 for the pattern "State of Grace."
Then last year I was given a $25 gift certificate from one of my FQ Bingo players (a mighty generous hostess gift I might add!!!) and I had one year before it expired... I almost forgot about using it - but then I remembered it and at first had NO clue as to what fabric I would select to purchase from equilter.com
...but then it dawned on me!! More coordinating fabric to go with my jelly roll and pattern! Yes! :) The dark brown fabric could be used as a border, the stripe as the binding and the large floral on blue background as the backing... now all I have to find is that white fabric the pattern calls for as the focal print.... hummm no idea where to find that b/c my LQS is sold out and not reordering it. Wish I knew the name or number for it.
What do you have sitting around that you can't cut into just yet??? I don't have time to start this pattern just yet as I have many other irons in the fire... but one day... yes one day! ;)
Love from Texas!
