Hedge Maze Kit

I needed to do some mindless sewing this week,
but...
I didn't have anything cut and ready to sew!
How can this be?
Usually there are a number of projects going in my
Hidey Hole,
so when the mood hits to do something,
it's ready and waiting.

Then I remembered...
I had purchased a kit from Craftsy on their half price sale.
 Out it came and the cutting began.

After some cutting and stitching and trimming
and stitching,
this quilt was made.


You know I love Kaffe fabrics!
This gave me my fix for a while.

Making this was pretty mindless...
although I did have ti take out two squares that
were placed in the wrong spot!
It's a simple design that really shows off these fabrics.


I read somewhere that we should look at kits when they are on sale
because it's a great way to get fabric at a reduced price.
Even if you have no intention of making the kit,
the fabric is a bargain,
if it is cut to sizes that you will use.

A friend has started her own business and one of the things
she is selling is
Rotary Cutter Blades!!



She asked me to test these blades for her
and I have been using one for a while.
It is sharp, smooth and has lasted as long
as a Fiskars or Olfa blade usually lasts for me.
I have not seen a difference between with these blades at all.
She is offering a coupon code for $1 off a pack of ten blades.
You can find them on Amazon
and the coupon code is "Doodlebu"...
good until October 31st. 

Happy Quilting!!

That is a great quilt to show off those fabulous fabrics. The colors are so pretty too.

The price on those blades is such a great deal if they hold up as well as the Olfa ones.

Quick and easy! I'm not much of a Kaffe fan, but I like the colors in this one and the variety of scale and pattern in the fabrics.
Great suggestion to buy kits on sale just for the fabric.

I really like this design. Looks like mostly HST with a few hourglass blocks. Of course the color placement makes all the difference.

That's a pretty darned nice finish for "mindless sewing!" I'm glad you found something to scratch the sewing itch :)
