Frolic & Friday Night Sew In

Tonight's the July Friday Night Sew In, what are you gonna work on?  Have you decided or are you gonna wing it?  I am not sure, but here are some of my choices:  Start the Frolic Quilt, continue with my challenge Storybook quilt, work on a table runner for our new neighbor, prepare the backing for All Stars, or get my July Civil War BOM done (I haven't done any and we are meeting tomorrow).  So you see I have many options, I will think on them and you'll see what I decide tomorrow.  For those of you that haven't signed up yet just click on the box below and get to it, whatcha waitin for??

Here are the photos I promised of Frolic by Sandy Gervais for Moda. 

I had been hearing about Schnibbles on other blogs and finally I picked up a book, since I have never used Layer Cakes before this was the perfect chance to try some cake!  For those of you that don't know what a layer cake is or if you want to make your own from your stash, it is a stack of 40 - 10 inch squares, it contains different fabrics from the same line.   I don't have a stash that has alot of fun fabrics like Frolic, mostly reproductions, something I need to work on for the future so I have a bigger selection for quilts that I make to give away.  As I mentioned before this is a wedding gift and so I don't mind spending some $$,  and it will add some variety to my stash.  I was able to use my BYOB bag for 10% off and got 20% off the backing fabric because I finished the bolt!  The fabric with the squares will be the backing, the brown floral is the binding, and the light floral is the background and inner border fabric.  The name of the quilt is Imagine, but I will be refering to it as the Frolic quilt on my blog. 

Gotta get moving!


  1. Your Frolic fabrics look great! That's it...I'm off to order a Frolic layer cake right now! LOL Can't wait to see your progress on the quilt! :0)

  2. I love that Frolic material. It reminds me of vintage linens.

  3. Sounds like you have plenty to work on! Good luck tonight!


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
