The Fat Quarter Shop posted a great
complete pattern and tutorial.
I love the Fat Quarter Shop.
This is a super simple quilt, and it just so happened I had a couple of Jelly Rolls just waiting to be used.
I've actually had them for over a year, (maybe longer) stashed in my craft room.
Don't know what a Jelly Roll is....
This pattern literally just takes just a couple of hours to make this quilt, start to finish.
I made two of them.
The quilts are lap size, measuring about 36x36.
This was made from a Moda Jelly Roll, Coming Home by Deb Strain.
I used the new Moda, Wool and Needle Flannel, by Primitive Gatherings, in black, for the backing.
The second one
is also made from a Moda Jelly Roll, Together by Brannock and Patek.
I used the same Flannel backing as the other quilt, only in red.
I cannot say enough good things about Moda brand fabric,
and several other of my favorite makers.
Yes, I have to admit it...
I'm a fabric SNOB!'
OK- I said it!
I can't, and won't, settle for the cheaper fabric store brands.
It's the feel, the texture, and the quality, and that's what I choose to pay for.
I always stick to the higher end manufactures and designers.
Which brings me to the point of selling them.
I can't. Why?
Because I'm not so sure I could even cover my material costs in each quilt.
Each quilt has about $50.00 of material involved.
Which, does not include my time or thread.
Each Jelly Roll runs about $40.00, I used half of a Roll in each quilt.
The Flannel for the backing was $11.99 per yard, I used one yard in each quilt.
The batting was $17.99 per bag, I used 1 bag, minus 2 feet, for each quilt.
So really, unless you have a fair knowledge about the fabric costs of the materials used,
would you really be willing to pay $50.00 per quilt, or more?
I'm working on some new Aprons....
Here's a sneak peek at the fabrics I'll be using...
Another great manufacture, Robert Kaufman, designed by
I'm making more of the smock style aprons, and will be selling them for $34.95 each.
They will be this style
I'm currently out of the chicken print, but if you're interested in these fabrics for an Apron,
I'm pretty sure I can get more.
If you, or anyone you know, may be interested in purchasing an Apron, please contact me directly, before I list them in my Etsy Store.
Which has been sorely neglected these past several months.
Have a lovely day.
