Rabbits!

Rabbits! Do you sometimes feel like your fabric takes on the characteristics of rabbits? You know, like when you close the closet door, they start multiplying??

After I made this quilt for my daughter

it was my desire to make a second one when we moved into our new home last summer.

And when I found the fabric greatly reduced at our LQS I bought up what I needed (and probably more), enough to make the second quilt. As I shared last month, my sister in love gave my daughter the matching quilt for her new bedroom.

Which brings me to this.................

what I bought plus.......

the left over scraps!

Now let me just say that when the LQS reduces their fabric to 75% off, it is very hard to resist buying the fabric for the intended project ;-)

Soooooo......................

We just have to make a NEW project!

Yep, keep that needle going up and down.

Happy Quilting!

You can't beat that price especially now a days with the cost of the NEW stuff coming out. Your daughter's quilt is a beauty!!

well at least if fabric is growing in the closet...unlike rabbits...there's no "pellets" lol

And, I have to say...you are really SMART for taking advantage of 75% off! You GO girl!

I seem to have that problem here too...I am really beginning to wonder if it's even possible to use every last scrap!
