The other day, I received the last fabric purchase I’ll be making for a very long time. It was both exciting, and a little bit sad.
I really shouldn’t have ordered it at all, but MSQ came out with something so amazing, I just had to have it. As you know, I like to make/give my brother rather special birthday/Christmas gifts.
We have the same, twisted sense of humour, so it’s always fun coming up with something that will make him laugh. When I saw this panel, I knew it was just the thing.
Yep those are outhouses!
I ordered a yard of two other fabrics (bottom two), from the same line, as well as a nice brown “blender” fabric (top left) to make some blocks to surround the panel. The darker newsprint fabric (top right) is a 108″ backing fabric.
Althought I wasn’t planning on making him another quilt so soon (he got the flannel one for his birthday last year), I just couldn’t resist making him the “crappiest” birthday present ever*!
Of course, I won’t be able to start this any time soon… so much to do, so little time.
Oh… and you may have noticed something else in the top of that box.
These fun beach prints came along for the ride, because I have a fabulous beach-themed quilt planned… when I have more time, of course!
*Word has it that he is making me an outhouse-shaped bird feeder… so great minds think alike!!!
