Quick Jelly Roll Table Runner : :

Here is the EASIEST quilt/table runner I have ever made!

I made it from a Jelly Roll. The fabric I used is called Honey sweet from Moda. Can you believe this is the first time I have used a Jelly Roll? It was soo much fun! I'm planning a rather big quilt using Jelly Rolls, and I'm really looking forward to it now! They are such a great way to get a good variety of perfectly matching fabric!
To make this table runner I used a quilt-as-you-go method (QAYG).

Diet For A Year : :

I solemnly pledge to DIET for the whole year of 2014.

No, not a food diet...but a fabric diet! My fabric stash is getting to the point where I really need to use more of it! (please, lets keep nasty words like hoarder, obsessive, and addicted to ourselves).
I buy fabric (when its cheap or on sale) and have every intention of making quilts, clothes, bags etc...but I don't do it. I just put the fabric in my cupboard. Its not that I don't want to make these new things, I just really don't have the time!
So...being the new year and all that...Ive decided I'm going on a......
