Another Sliced Bread

I still had lots of strips left over from the honeybun and made another quilt in the pattern. I had to add some of my stash fabric to get an even number.

I decided it was too short and put in a top and bottom extra border. I hate the way they look when just slapped on so have come up with this way to add one. This ice cream fabric line was purchased at Joannes for a fabulous price. I LOVE the sales of the discounted fabric when they have you take off 50 per cent. I got 3 good sized pieces for $1.50 a yard.

Sliced Bread Quilt

I ran across this free pattern and decided to try it out using a Moda Honeybun I had sitting in my stash. I have enough for another one and really enjoyed making this quilt. I used yardage for the border and last row on each block. Here is the free pattern. I tweaked it a little to allow some squaring up on each block.


This will go to our local hospital for the children.

Six Fat Quarters

I discovered a new to me free pattern online. It is made with 6 fat quarters and then some fabric for borders. I have had fun making a bunch of charity quilts in this pattern. Unfortunately I cannot find this pattern again on the internet. Thank goodness I saved a copy for myself.

Chocolate Lollipop Quilt

A dear friend is the mother of the talented fabric designer Anna Marie Horner. This is one of her earlier fabric lines. I saw it in Whittles online store for a fabulous price and bought the fat quarter pack and a couple of half yard cuts.

This is the Wicked Easy free online pattern. Anna Marie is spearheading an initiative
to make quilts for the victims of the Nashville floods. this will go to that cause.
