Another E. Burns Pattern of the Month

I received the second pattern in the monthly mailing. This one used Layer Cakes and I had one waiting on my shelf. I bought it on sale and then had no idea what to do with it. This is not a fabric line I would ordinarily choose but turned out really pretty. This will go to our local Hospice.

I always learn something on each quilt and this one taught me DO NOT try stitch in the ditch with dark thread. I changed to my little wiggle line and all was fine. I had my beloved prewound bobbins and had no problem with tension.

More stash was used for the backing and I can see my fabric dwindling. There is still plenty but I am definitely using more than I buy.

I love this pattern, how cute. Nice to hear your stash is going down, that way when you do want to buy fabric it will be an extra treat.
