Fabric Haul

My MIL is visiting and wanted to learn to quilt. She started out with some placemats in a simple square pattern. One for her and one for her husband. Their bedroom has the big TV in the house so they like to eat dinner in their room sometimes and watch a movie. These placemats will be a great addition to their TV trays. She has the most unconventional way of doing things but it gets the job done.

Placemats WIP

Bitten by the quilting bug she wants to make 10 more placemats for her dining room using earth tones. We took advantage of the fat quarter shop daily deals. On Tuesday they were having 50% off lots of Free Spirit fabrics. This was the result...

This is what we got for her:
Shelby Pretty Little Things Fat Quarter Bundle Dena Designs for Free Spirit Fabrics 
Skyscraper Grand Hotel Fat Quarter Bundle Jenean Morrison for Free Spirit Fabrics    

Free Spirit Designer Solids Orange
Bella Solids Terrain Cactus
Bella Solids Nautical Blue
Nightshade Evening Spider Blossom  
The Birds and the Bees Apple Swallow Skies
And she said I could pick up a few things for myself:

Cocoon Ruby Wine Metamorphosis Yardage - to back a baby blanket and my gold and eggplant bee block quilt 
Chicopee Ladder Dot in black and Fuchia
The Birds and the Bees Aquamarine Meteor Shower 
The Birds and the Bees Sunset Lazy Stripe 
The Birds and the Bees Pool Tree of Life 
The Birds and the Bees Mist Lazy Stripe 
The Birds and the Bees Honey Tree of Life 
The Birds and the Bees Cinnamon Tree of Life 

Flea Market Fancy Grey Eyelet 
Aviary Linen White Feathers 

Subtle Designer Solids Fat Quarter Bundle Free Spirit Fabrics 

Bluebird's Song La Dee Da Fat Quarter Bundle Erin McMorris for Free Spirit Fabrics  

Wrenly Christmas Fat Quarter Bundle Valori Wells for Free Spirit Fabrics - I see a tree skirt and advent calendar in my future


  1. What?! This is ONE ORDER? You GO girl!
    (And some of the Skyscraper Grand Hotel might be good in your gold and eggplant quilt...)
