I titled my post Layer Cake Quilt …but it should be called the Layer Cake + Jelly Roll + Charm Pack Quilt.
This is the beginning stages of Chase’s quilt … (I’m calling it a quick and dirty picture).
When I start a new quilt …. I lay it out on the table …. to make sure the pattern and colors look okay ….. then I lay it out on the floor … on top of an existing quilt. It’s easier to place the squares on it … instead of measuring everything (I’ll share that picture later).
Here’s the Fabric:
- One Layer Cake – 42 White 10″ Blocks (squares) Moda
- One Charm Pack – 42 Ash 5″ Squares – Kona Solids Robert Kaufman
- Jelly Roll – Ash Kona Solids Robert Kaufman
- I bought all of them from the Fat Quarter Shop
I’ll share more pictures as I work on it (this one is going to take a while).
The Hobbit started last night …. I’ve always gone on opening night …but not this time.
I was watching the trailer earlier today and Chase came running downstairs when he heard the music. When it was over I said to him “do you have chill bumps too? and he said “yes”.
I’m happy that my children and I have seen all the movies together and we are sad this is the last of them. It seems like we’ve been watching them for most of their lives (The Fellowship of the Ring came out in December 2001).
If I have enough energy when Brooke gets off work Chase, Jessica, Brooke and I are going tonight …. I must remember to take a box of Kleenex! Sadly I know what happens …. as do everyone that read the book.
I’m headed upstairs to take a nap and hope I wake up with enough energy to go with them (I’ve still not seen Hunger Games … shocking I know!).
