For Christmas, Jim got me a couple of Layer Cakes, a jelly roll and a honey bun of the *Nostalgia* fabric line by Moda. (Actually, I sat him down in front of the computer, with the ordering page up, and said *order this for me, for Christmas*! HA!) I already had a couple of charm packs of this fabric line - you may remember that I made a little hexagon table runner/doll quilt from this line, in November. See my post HERE.
Anyways, with one layer cake, a charm pack, and a small square cut off each strip of the jelly roll (which I then rolled back up, so it would still look all pretty!), I am making a Scruffily quilt! You can find the tutorial HERE, at Moda Bake Shop. I am in desperate need of batting and backing, so this is another top to go in the *tops* pile. Hopefully, I will get to Joann's and get some batting soon... :o) I ended up making enough squares to make two small pillows to coordinate with it. I am looking forward to finishing this one, so I can wash it and see it turn scruffily! :o)
Here was my helper for the day - our cat, Lefty... :o) He likes the warmth of my quilts, altho at times like these, he makes it pretty hard to sew! :o)
