Note: FOUR years ago at the fair I saw a quilt and fell in love. Went searching for the fabric (it had to be the same exact fabric) bought it and began. Soon ran out of the white I was using, couldn't find it anywhere, stuck the project in a box and put it on the top shelf in the closet. Pulled it out last Friday to see what I could do to get it finished.
Back to Joann's: While walking around trying to find something (that wasn't already on sale) to get so I could use my last two coupons I came across the exact white fabric that I needed to finish the quilt I began FOUR years ago. I am so excited. I also had to buy some more black rick rack.
I also decided to make two I Spy quilts bigger so I needed more sashing fabric.
Only added 5 yards.
Used one yard making "4 Patches 4 Hope". Regina is requesting 4 patches in honor of her mother. She will be turning these 4 patches into comfort quilts.
This quilt came about as I wanted to use the extra from a quilt backing. I fussy cut the butterflies, found one of the two pinks in my stash and made this quilt for Ronald McDonald's House. This is a great pattern because you can make it any size you want and it is easy to make in a day. Pattern is "Puzzle Box" by Tracey Brookshier. The inside of the blocks are 6 inches so it is perfect for large scale fabrics. I prefer to make more blocks than add a border. I have enough butterflies to make another quilt after I purchase more pink fabric.
This is a I Spy quilt for Ronald McDonald's house.
Here are 6 beds for the animal shelter - uses 1/2 yard of flannel each.
Purchased - 60 yards
Used - 64.68 yards
Used more than I bought - 4.68 yards - back in the black!
