Today it's finally happening since Kelli and Rebecca joined forces and basically bribed me into playing along by having a fabulous giveaway!
You get up to EIGHT chances to win a Little Apples - Layer cake!
For the last couple of days I've been staring at a Little Apples - Layer cake. I want it - no doubt about it, but can't really afford it. Either the layer cake itself or the shipping or even both are too expensive.
Erin has made the cutest quilt using a charm pack which is much cheaper, but she mentioned that a layer cake would have been nicer to also get the dancing little girls in the quilt.
So what am I thinking about - you might ask.
Well, I mentioned in one of my last posts that I've been dreaming about a quilt using rainbow charms. Check out what Hadley did - so amazing!!!
I will definitely try to get into one of the next rainbow charms swap, but for the meantime I was thinking, that I could start cutting what I already got. I have a lot of FQs (mainly in bright colors). Most of them are untouched.
I hate cutting fabric - that's a fact! I guess that also keeps me from actually making quilts ;-)
So, I thought what if I take my FQs and whatever scraps I find and cut them into 5" squares, a couple of 2,5" squares and maybe a 1-3/4" stripe since I wanted to make a Spiderweb-quilt ever since I got the book "More Quilt's from The Quiltmakers Gift".
I guess this is a common method, but what do you think?
And do you prewash FQs?
Please leave plenty of comments on this one!!! I really want your advise!
