{ started rachel's quilt }

Last night I started on Rachel's quilt! I bought a Crab Apple Hill pattern/kit from Quiltopia's booth at the sewing show. The pattern is called Bramble Rose Quilt. I am surprised how little fabric comes in the kit for the price I paid for it. It only comes with about half as much fabric as the pattern calls for. I knew it didn't come with backing or binding fabric, but I expected there to be enough to do the front. Thankfully I have some scraps that will coordinate well with it. Since it's a scrappy sorta design it doesn't matter if the fabric matches perfectly, I guess. This is my first time doing "real" applique and so far I like it! This morning I had to swing by A Great Notion to pick up some scissors for cutting out all the little flowers & leaves, though. My honkin' big fiskars weren't doing the trick!


  1. maybe they put the wrong amount of fabric in? great looking pattern

  2. you changed your banner again! very nice!

    can't wait to see progress on the quilt too!

  3. Happy quilting! I think I like this banner better - very nice :)
