More Yummy Pre-cuts & a Giveaway

Yes another delicious box of goodies arrived today. Firstly it has four more Rural Jardin layer cakes and 4 more Jelly Rolls. Wow this stuff sold out so fast. If you still want one then don't delay! There was also some more yardage as so much has disappeared already.

Also in it were more Hunky Dory Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls - another collection that disappeared before the yardage release.
Finally we have also got in the latest reproduction range Charity. Reproductions are so lovely.
I do so love the pre-cuts and have decided to give away a lovely charm pack of fabrics from the Mary Rose Collection. To go in this give-away, just leave a comment tell us you favourite charm pack project. The more inspirational comment wins the pack! We'll post the winner at the end of the month!

I made my daughter a birthday shirt using the Soiree charm pack. I used different fabrics to cut a number 6 and the letters s, i, and x. I then used iron-on adhesive to attach them to a plain yellow shirt I found on clearance and did a satin stitch around the edges. She loved it! She gave me a big hug when she saw it and enjoyed wearing it at her birthday party.

Just LOVE any "Mary Rose" fabrics!
One of the neatest spring quilts I have done is to use the 'flying geese' block pattern; only make the geese one inch high and call them 'flying swallows'-so cute!
Thanks so for sharing!
Love your Blog!

Well I have to tell you that my favorite thing to do is to stack them all up in plastic boxes and drool over them " dreaming of the next project to make! Does eye candy count as a project? Seriously I love making baby quilts with them. Linda

I love to buy beautiful fabrics but have to admire them for awhile, before I can bare to cut into them. That's the seeds from which my stash has grown! But at least with the pre-cuts, there isn't too much cutting required, so that saves me stressing toooo much. And with patterns made especially, the fun is ready to be had! No time wasting required.

And I do love the Cherish Nature quilt too!!

greetings from Adelaide!
I have just recently been bitten by the quilting bug and am having a wonderful time checking out the various blogs for quilting. I think I have fallen in love with the moda charity collection - I just love the tonings.

I have been working with a couple of charm packs lately making a basic squares quilt with random ohio stars (made from stash fabric). It's been lots of fun..and really fast.
I've been making it for a prize for our local public school ball....hope it makes them a bit of money!
(there's a picture of it on my blog, if you're interested!)

after I can take the courage to cut into the yummy charm squares, I like making bags with them.. sometimes chop them up more often than not I dont.. I loved the Rounierres (can't spell) but I am loving the new range as well :O)

One day I want to make a patch teddy bear out of some precuts. The charm packs are so inspirational that anything is posssible. Of course we have to sit and touch them for a period of time before we do something with them. Happy days.

I love charm packs, mixing up the squares and joining them. A quilt of squares is so simple, yet so very effective.

Like everyone else, I like to put them up on my shelf and gaze them them lovingly, for a while, before I get out my cutter. I'm thinking of making a set of placemats with little pockets for cutlery. A charm pack and some fabric from my stash and it should work like a charm :-D

There is a hidden star pattern in the layer cake,jelly roll and charm pack book by Pam and Nicky Lintott. I am making it out Glace by Moda using charm squares and a dessert roll of the solid colours to make the stars

I love the Busy Thimbles "Oh My Darling" pattern. It is so simple but so effective! It is the next one on my 'to-do' list with Frolic Charm pack and a stash of scraps!

I haven't done anything too exciting with my charm squares pack but I did make a christmas bag from the crazy eight range. It had a built in pocket on the outside that took me ages to work out how to do it. I was so pleased with the finished result. I don't care that it's not Christmas anymore as far as I'm concerned it's always coming up to Christmas.
I have a few more packs now, they are divine. Pls pop me in the draw.

I have just bought a pattern that requires a few charm squares, it is a pin cushion in the shape of a flower with all different coloured petals then it has a little basket attached to the bottom for all your threads, it is the cutest little thing. They would make fantastic pressies for all. I can imagine the "Mary Rose " fabrics would be just perfect for this weekend project.
I'l just have to keep mt fingers and toes crossed.

I am a bit of a hexagon addict and at the moment am dreaming of a pretty hexagon throw. Charm packs are great because I can have lots of different fabrics and can just manage to get 6 3/4" hexagons from one charm pack. I love the Mary Rose Collection because they are so pretty and the colours so soft.
