Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Fabric, Storage, and the Tree

Turns out I missed a requirement on the Block Swap — no Christmas elements so the resulting quilt can be used longer.  So, out with the holly and in with a cardinal.  Last night I cut out all of the cardinals I needed using the AccuQuilt.

Saturday I spent the morning at a couple of quilt shops.  At  First City Quilts in Leavenworth, Kansas I picked up the pattern on the left – Baubles ‘n Beads. I purchased it during their Monday night Facebook Live event. The pattern on the right – Atomic Starburst I picked  up at the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival.  I fell in love with both of these patterns.

Also on Facebook, Stitch On Needlework in Lawrence, Kansas posted a picture of Quilting Treasures Radiance they received in.  When I saw the whole collection I knew I wanted to make these two quilts with those fabrics. Stitch On only has 13 of the 35 fabrics of the collection. I bought the background fabric, the inner border fabric for Baubles ‘n Beads as  well as the “solids” for Atomic Starburst from them, and the FQ bundle from Shabby Fabrics.  The colors are off on the first picture. The second picture is a truer representation of the colors.

There may have been a couple of other pieces purchased as well.  I think I’m good on fabric for a while.

That evening I went to my storage locker to get the empty crates to sort into. I decided since I was there I should bring a few boxes home.

I have not gone through them yet because the next morning I got up to find that the storm damaged one of my trees.

This picture was taken after I worked on it.  What you can’t see from this view is the limb in the top left corner is still partially attached to the tree!

Well the weather is cool – when compared the heat wave we had last week, so I guess I’m heading out to go through some of those boxes!
