DrEAMi! Linky #6

I nearly forgot about the July DrEAMi! for July, so I am interrupting my post in progress on the Cows quilt, which should have been published yesterday but wasn't, to write this up and get it posted for you to link up. I'll leave it open all week, as usual. Please feel free to add a link from June if you had a Drop Everything And Make It! moment during that month, since there was no DrEAMi! in June.

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!
At only 6.96/yard I do believe some will be coming to live in my house. Love that pale green with the red, reminds me of Allison Harris of 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!


  1. I never found your June one, so I put my Grand Old Flag in this month....

  2. Love that Jungle Party fabric. This is the first time I've actually been mid-DrEAMi. I've had a growing stack of 5" charms sitting around forever when I saw this quilt on Cluck Cluck Sew and I just had to start it. Plus, it's ideal for mindless sewing when I go to my sit and sew group twice a month. Here's the inspiration:

  3. Love all your Dreami and Adreami projects. I have several Adreamis with some fabrics I just grouped. I already ordered some of Amanda's new fabrics via your link. Please make CT's link bigger, you should see me when I'm ordering through your link how close my face is to the screen trying to find it--trying to be discreet when I'm ordering Hope all is getting better, I think of you everyday since I'm always passing my Freefall quilt in the stairway.

  4. Lovely fabrics! And the button you designed is so cute!

  5. Sew Sisters has been having some pretty good deals lately. Love the fabrics for the Modern by the yard!

  6. Oh, fun to see a DrEAMi post again. I had one for June but swore off of them this month. :) The fabrics for all of your AtDrEAMi projects are fabulous. I am so drawn to the dark blue floral print in that second picture. And the new line from Amanda Jean is so charming. I was looking at the fabrics online after reading through your post this morning, and then my snail mail came, and the catalog with the line was in it. Do you think that's telling me something? Have fun with that special Leo project. I bet he and Grandpa can't wait to get together.

  7. Your backside is great ! Always good to see interesting ideas for backsides . I do have a dreami but it's sort of on hold . I really have to finish things !

  8. Pretty, pretty fabrics! No DrEAMi projects for me this month. I'm trying to be focused!

  9. Ooh, I finally have a DrEAMi, but I have to write my post first. :) I like those fabrics you are using in the baby quilt and can't wait to see what you do with them!

  10. Love the wild feline fabric. I hand dyed some fabric and a July obsession was born. The quilt top was finished last night, and bounced several other projects from their proper rotation.

  11. Oh, that lion and tiger fabric - I want some! And I don't even have a reason for it! But we all know how that goes - sometime there will be a perfect use for that piece we just had to have. Have fun wiht it!
