Now that I’ve got the Easter outfits wrapped up, I’ve dusted off my quilting skills and started a new bed cover for the master bedroom.
The quilt block–of-the-month kits at Joann’s really caught my eye. I know I want one of the walls in my room painted a dark teal – which this quilt has. All the pieces are pre-cut. This makes putting a block together super quick. (I’m all about instant gratification when it comes to crafting!)
Not only are blocks available (12 required for the quilt-top), but also a setting kit and pre-cut binding – ahhhhhh - Where have you been all my life!!!
These items can be rather pricy, but careful use of those 40 & 50% off coupons takes some of the sting away. Since all the dimensions are given in the directions, I’m using the patterns to make a second quilt with the scraps of the Easter outfits. More quilt for the buck! I was able to make four blocks (two for each quilt) in snatches of one day.
Two down, ten to go!
