January 30th, 2010 - Too Good To Cut Challenge

 Nothing like waiting for the last minute to post about this. I have had this fabric for a few years and never really wanted to cut in to it. Everything is there for the top and I really like it but you know how it goes.

 Fifteen half yard cuts and it’s all batiks. They are beautiful and I really like them just as they are.

    The only non-batik is the white background fabric. Even the backing is a batik. I don’t think there is a white batik but I could get a very pale yellow or blue instead. But that would mean a trip to the fabric shop and we all know how that ends up.

 And this is what I’m going to make out of it all. I think I’m have enough to make a twin size quilt but I don’t even have a twin bed in the house. And I’m not giving it away. Okay I just checked all the fabric and the pattern again. That’s the size I bought the fabric for. I just love batiks especially in these colours.

 So I had better start cutting out so fabric. I need to make 30 blocks and that shouldn’t take all that long.  Right?

Have a great day and let’s get some sewing done!

    Great looking batiks and the pattern is great.

    I cut into some batiks this morning, but mine are hot pinks and oranges – the opposite color theme from yours!

    Looking forward to see your project as it develops

    Hi MK: I think I was there when you bought that fabric. I think you should expand it to a queen size so you can out it on your own bed. Nice fresh colours for the spring. I made that quilt and it makes up pretty quick.
