FedEx just brought me a lovely package this morning from Thousands of Bolts. The brown will be the back for my Chocolat Weave. It's not from the same fabric line but was $3.85 a yard instead of $7.29 so I think it will work just fine. I bought 10 yards since it's going to be a king sized quilt and whatever is left will go for pillowcase lining/pillow backs.
The funky eye fabric I just fell in love with and had to have a yard. I see it being used as the windows/doors for some of Tonya's fun wonky houses. At least that's my plan for now. If I start on it soon MAYBE it will be finished before next Halloween. LOL!
Thanks for all the kind words re: car damage. It's not really that bad just that's it's a NEW car. It does have a couple pretty good dents and the black piece on the left and front have some pretty deep gouges. Then there are scratches on the hood and fender so definately will have to have it fixed.
A lot of you have asked where to get the pattern for my Weave quilts. It's in the Jan/Feb 2006 issue of Quilts with Style Magazine. Go about halfway down the page and find where it says "Browse our back issues". Click on the "Look Inside" link. Then on the "Jan/Feb 2006 issue". The issue is $6.00. BTW, this is also the issue I got the pattern for Arabesque that I made back in (I think) Feb. And I bought it for the Gem pattern. Just haven't done that one yet. If even 1/4 the people who've asked where to get this pattern order the back issue they're going to be wondering why such a run all of a sudden on this particular issue. LOL! The quilt as shown is very large (around 90X108) without any borders. Both of the ones I did were made smaller by cutting the pieces smaller. Chocolat Weave is about 75X90 without borders and Cat Weave is about 72X84 without borders. If anyone wants to make the smaller sized email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll send the cutting size for each patch. This really is a VERY easy quilt to make. It's assembled in verticle rows and not really made out of "blocks". Would make a great charity quilt done in one of the smaller sizes using a mix of novelty and small print fabrics much like I did my Cat one.
