Can you have AtDrEAMi! moments? (About to Drop Everything And Make It!) I believe you can...LOL. Within the next day, I am having one, and within the first half of this coming week I am having another. What? Scheduled DrEAMis/DrEAMies (whatever the plural would be, or DrEAMi! moments, there that's easier!)... Well, a fast and simple project is going to be made today using this PURR-fect or ROAR-fect fabric I snagged at Sew Sisters Quilt Shop Free Shipping within Canada sale last weekend (and it arrived on Wednesday, like super-fast shipping despite a huge influx of sales, love it):
Update: Here's the finished product! Whipped it up Saturday night. It kind of suddenly took a bit of a curve, and I'm totally fine with that.
|From cutting to finish, it took 45 minutes! It's the Roll It Up! pillowcase on All People Quilt -I've made the pattern many many times. I suddenly had the idea to stitch Brady's name down the navy blue band. Wrote it in chalk pencil, then FMQ-ed it with Sulky rayon.|
And a baby quilt using these beauties:
Both projects are under a very tight deadline, which is why they both are DrEAMi! projects; however, the lions and tigers fabric is very definitely a DrEAMi! as when I spied that, I knew a certain Leo whose birthday is tomorrow needs something made with this fabric. This little Leo's grandpa is going to visit him this week. The other is for the Fall issue of Modern By The Yard, Benartex's e-zine, so it's less of a DrEAMi!; however, I am having to set other projects aside to get it done for the deadline to have it sent for photographing.
Since this has turned into a bit of a fabric ogling post, thought I'd just mention two quick things available at Connecting Threads (that is an affiliate link as are the ones below). The first is that wide backing is on sale for 8.96/yard US. Even with the exchange, that is a terrific price. I bought some on their last sale for my other aunt's quilt, and have been happy with it, but I will let you know how it quilts and washes up. The second is that Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts has just released her second line with them and I actually like it more than her first!
Cluck Cluck Sew colours. Psst! They have her fabric too... And remember they ship free at some pretty decent minimum purchase amounts. As always, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for purchasing through my links and supporting this blog, the writing of which makes me so very happy.
If a class is what you feel like cuddling up with on a Saturday night, then know that Craftsy has a TON of them on for less than $20. They also have a pretty good clearance section, just sayin'...
Temptations! Now, let's see what DrEAMi! moments you've had these past couple of months, those squirrels, like that lions fabric that you just HAVE to drop current projects and make right NOW!
