Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Tuesday Morning and Midnight Gardens

First up is Tuesday Morning Garden. I was in my local Tuesday Morning looking for something and discovered they had a decent amount of charm squares, jelly rolls, and layer cakes.  I’m not a huge fan as typically there are only 5 prints in each collection, but I really liked this one.  The tag says ‘Garden’ so Tuesday Morning Garden it is.  I bought a charm pack and a FQ bundle.  When I got home I paired it with the remaining background yardage from Shimmer (was I supposed to make a pillowcase? Oops!) and found 2 yards of the splotchy fabric in my stash for the backing.  It was supposed to be used in a sweatshirt jacket that clearly I’ve not made. I started this quilt on 6/16 and finished it this past Monday (6/20).

Pattern:  Jumping Jacks by Sweet Jane’s Quilting & Designs

Size: 38″ x 49″ before washing

Quilt Design: ‘Butterflies 10’ – I’m not not sure where to get it.

Thread: 40 wt Glide in Peacock.  I thought it was a pink until I set it next to my purples.

I’ve really need to stop watching Facebook Lives.  But I love this fabric line – It’s Botanical Magic.  It’s a quick and easy sofa pillow with an envelope style backing.  I couldn’t find a pillow in the recommended size locally, so I bought a ‘travel pillow’ from Walmart.  I think it’s 14″ x 20″.

My last ‘project’ is this Amish Diamond block.  I wanted to test some instructions. This block will go in the orphan box for a future project.

Also, as a result of my spending the past couple of months, I’ve decided to track my purchases and usage again.  I started on June 1st. My fabric stash is not included in my beginning total.  By the end of the year I’d like to have my usage be greater than what I bought.  Tops already completed don’t count, but any backing that I use will go against my usage #.  I’ll post my first # on July 1st. It’s not going to be pretty.
