~Fabulous Fabric~

A little over a month ago, I was hopping about blogs, and came across Sew, Mama, Sew. It is a fun blog with lots of sewing inspiration. And a "Free Fabric Friday" every single week. I actually won fabric a few weeks ago!

Four gorgeous fat quarters, just waiting for me to do something with them:

Any ideas? I've never bought or used fat quarters before. Not that I haven't used scraps...but I do not want to waste an inch of this fabric!

Oh, I just found that blog recently [Hmm - I think maybe from Randi at I have to say ...] Anyway ~ I agree, it is a great blog! :o)

I'm gonna have to go over there and check it out.

As for what to do with fat quarters . . . I have no idea! I saw a blog not too long ago where the girl was making some things with them, but I can't remember where it was. Maybe you could Google "fat quarter challenge" and see what comes up.

Sorry you and Kevin were sick, but I was glad to see today that you're on the mend. Been there, done that!

PS- Are you feeling better??

Are they big enough to make a little purse out of? What about a checkbook cover?

The prints are adorable! Can't wait to see what you create. :)

Congradulations on the lovely fabric! I recommend a "Patchfolio" from Craft Apple . They are fun to make and practical.

Those are great.
I recommend miniature quilts. There are some great patterns here. Finished size is 16"X20"

They use 4 fat quarters plus one more for the backing (I'm sure you could find something to work for the back.)

How about some quilted placemats and coasters to give as gifts (or to use yourself :))

Hi Tammy!
Love that fabric!!!
I would make a patchwork tablecloth, as it would match my kitchen. :)
If those aren't your home colors, a picnic tablecloth would be fun and cheery.
Have fun!
