Fat Quarterly Quilt Along
This week I was using up the last of the Botany jelly roll. I had 8 strips of yellow left, and I added a solid yellow to make 9, plus 9 strips of Snow. 18 strips was enough to make 36 blocks from the Fat Quarterly quilt along, which made a baby size 36″ x 36″ quilt. I had hoped to have the quilting done too, but time ran out.
The jelly roll summary – 3 baby quilts and 2 table runners. I also used a yard of coordinating fabric, two rolls and several yards of Kona Snow for sashing and backing, some fleece for backing one of the quilts, and Kona Buttercup for backing the last quilt. The total cost for all the projects was only about $100, since the Botany roll was bought on sale for $23. Very reasonable, I’d say.
I indulged in some online shopping of my own this week. This is a new collection from Denyse Schmidt available at Joann’s in the States, and Etsy everywhere.
I can hardly wait!
