I needed to do some mindless sewing this week,
I didn't have anything cut and ready to sew!
How can this be?
Usually there are a number of projects going in my
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
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.
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 :)
Wow! I agree with Louise - a beautiful quilt for "mindless sewing"! Awesome! Congratulations!
Yummy color. I love the fabrics in this simple pattern.
