This top photo is for Jaelyn's Quilt. She does NOT like pink but she does like yellow and orange so I decided on those colors for her. I'm going to make her the stacked coins quilt. You can see a gazillion of them here. I seriously blame flickr for making me want to do this quilt lol.
Kayla loves all things pink and green so I decided on this fabric. I still have to get the fabric for the back and the sashing but I'll get that when I'm close to being finished with Jaelyn's quilt.
Oh, I will be making Avalon by Kathy Doughty for her. I think it will be perfect and simple lol.
Let's talk fabric. OK....Now I sew so I KNOW all fabric isn't created equal. Let me tell you. Kayla's fabric is by Heather Bailey. It's the freespirit line. I ordered it from www.twiddletails.com THIS STUFF FEELS SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! I was NOT expecting that when I opened the package!!!
Jaelyn's fabric I got from Walmart and Hancock. It does NOT feel like the Heather Bailey fabric! AT ALL. It doesn't even LOOK the same lol.
I don't know WHAT the thread count is but I don't think I want to use anything else from now on lol.
It's almost like sheets lol. When I purchase sheets for my bed, I would really just buy a set of sheets. Pick em up and go. Once I learned about high threadcount sheets? It was OVER. I don't buy anything less than 1000 count for my bed lol.
That is what this fabric is like. The walmart/hancock fabric feels like 200 threadcount sheets and the Heather Bailey feels like 1000 threadcount sheets. I KID YOU NOT.
There is NOTHING wrong with hancock/walmart fabric OR 200 or 300 threadcount sheets if that is what YOU like lol. I'm just saying I LOVE this Heather Bailey fabric! LOL
Since these quilts will be gifts, I will only work on them while the kids are in school. I plan on starting on Jaelyn's next week.
Alrighty guys, that is all I have! LOL
Enjoy your day and stay safe!
