Those that don’t know JoAnn’s – this is a large fabric store chain in the US. It stocks everything from home decor fabrics to clothing fabrics and of course has a section for quilting fabrics. The Premium Quilting fabric section includes fabric designers such as Denyse Schmidt, Heidi Grace and Donna Wilder (Stonehill Collection).
To my surprise, when I received the newsletter this week, Cloud 9 Fabrics is now part of the Premium Quilting Fabrics at JoAnn’s. It is not cheap (@$14.99 USD a yard) but since JoAnn had a 40% sale on Premium Quilting Fabric and I had coupons – my new additions were very affordable. Here are my selections, of the new Cloud 9 fabrics. I love the color mix of Citrus, Teal, Grey, Pink/Orange, and the geometric shapes.
Linking up with Fiona @ Finding Fifth for Sunday Stash.
This weekend was very productive – The back is now finished for the four seasons quilt and I have pinned all the layers together ready for quilting. The photo’s are not great due to all the shadows from the trees (obviously need a different time of day), but you will get the idea.
The back is Kona yellow solid (on the top)–> 1/2 chevron stripe of left over Notting Hill (Joel Dewberry) pieces –> and from Joann’s a aqua chevron fabric (on the bottom)
Now, onto the quilting and binding. The binding will be red. I will post one more time when it is all finished :-).Thanks for following my quilt journey.
So, I have finally finished my quilt top for my “four seasons in one day”. This is my first quilt top ever – it fits a twin. I was by myself the day I finished and had about 30 minutes of light left….so these are the best photos I have for now – I used my son’s playground as my photo assistant 🙂
The tree design is my own.
All buttons and sequins are hand sewn on.
Joel Dewberry Notting Hill Jelly roll was used for the 1/2 Chevron border and the center borders. (thanks to all those who provided the encouragement to finish the Chevron border – it turned out great).
The corners of the border is just Kona Cotton yellow and red (the corners are not perfect but I still love how it turned out).
