I figure I have to start somewhere, so here it goes.
I'd gotten the bulk of the fabric I needed for a quilt I'm working on from fabricworm.com a week ago & was just waiting for the rest to arrive from fabric.com I thought I would give their Free Spirit/Westminster Half-Yard Assortment a try. One of the obvious weaknesses of a person new to quilting is that you don't have a stash. On every blog I subscribe to, so many people seem to have a magical never ending assortment of delicious goodies to quilt with (and/or the ability to shop up a storm!) I figured I couldn’t go too wrong with 7.5 yards for $30. I couldn't find much information on the web about what people get with it, so I thought I’d share what came in my bundle.
Most of these aren’t things I’d choose on purpose (or accident!), but I had a 20% off coupon code, and got 4% cash back from fatwallet.com, so I was still glad I ordered it. I figure I can get away with using most of them in my first ever quilt-a-long for the Patchwork Prism quilt.
Fabric.com also netted me a few fun prints I'd been thinking of, come cut rate sale stuff and some kona solids, including a flannel for the aforementioned quilt backing... and I can tell now I really will be needing to work on my photography skills.
So I pre-washed everything and I’m waiting for the dryer to finish. Not particularly looking forward to the ironing phase, I swear I spent an entire evening ironing my fat quarters and other items from the last order! Seems to be one benefit to sewing apparel instead of quilting.
