My Fabric

When my mom offered to make me a quilt, I jumped at the opportunity.  I picked out some fabric from fabricworm.com.  They arrange bundles of fabric and this is the bundle I chose.  I love it.

My goal is to use every scrap.  We've made a quilt for me, a blanket to lay on the couch for Charlie, a runner for my hutch and a pillow cover.  I love this fabric.

I especially love this brown pattern.

But this yellow one is my favorite.

I have some ideas for putting these scraps to good use.  I have some small canvases that I could use for the idea on the left and I have a straw wreath that definitely needs some love.  Too many ideas, not enough time!


  1. I'm wondering did you ever finish the scrap and canvas project project? If so, how did it turn out?? Jennifer

  2. Hi Jennifer, I never did the scrap and canvas project. As I started planning it I realized that I wasn't really in love with the idea. It was a little too disorganized for my taste and I wasn't sure I could make it look right. I still love the idea, it's just not for me. -Virginia

  3. I love the teal patterns that you found! Can your mom make me a quilt too? ;)

    1. Hi Angela! Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you like the fabrics. The quilt turned out wonderfully. And as far as I know, my mom's not taking quilt orders...but I'll see what I can do ;) -Virginia

    2. Have you posted any pictures of the finished quilt? I'd love to see it! :)

    3. No I haven't yet, but I definitely need to! The challenge is figuring out how to photograph it and do it justice! I'll let you know when I post it! -Ginner
