I belong to a few groups on Facebook which are sewing related. Someone posted somewhere about something and someone commented with a link which took me through to this...
Let's back track... A friend and I went to the Stitches and Craft show at Rosehill Racecourse a few months ago. We were both bitterly disappointed and managed to be in and out in 2 hours which left us with an hour and a half before we had to be back at school. We called into Hobbysew at Top Ryde and I spotted these on the counter marked down from $39.95 to $20. I really liked the colours and knew I wanted them for a quilt top but wasn't sure of a pattern.
The instructions say to leave the fabric as it comes off the roll, in hindsight, perhaps I should have put the fabric back into the 2 rolls it came out of but I put all the colours together. The strips are also wider than a traditional jelly roll but meh, it's okay!
Stef got some batting almost the perfect size off Freecycle and I bought a back from CA Boyle Textiles ($11 /m not $24.95/m!!) when I was down there a few weeks ago so all up this quilt will cost me about $60 and some time. It's pinned, just needs to be sandwiched now and then bound. I am going to give quilting it a go and if it's no good will take it down to the lady who quilted the boys quilts for me... just in time for spring.
