Fabric Stash Additions {06.16.2013}

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.

Four Seasons in One Day – Quilt top

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 🙂

Some details:

  • 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).
