I am so dumb, last night I finished my post, and went to bed… leaving it on “draft” .. not published, but thinking I had published it for this morning. So here I am, all my dorkiness in tow…
I’ve made for this hop a simple project, nothing big or fancy, but something I haven’t done before.
I absolutely love novelty prints tho. Next to blenders they are my favorite print to work with. Even tho I don’t do it that often. Normally when I work with novelty prints, I either fussy cut the area I want or I create an entire project out of the fabric something like a bag or placemat. Back in the 90s, when novelty prints started becoming more popular in quilt shops, I went crazy buying as many as I could. Prior to that time, novelty prints carried little interest for me as I didn’t just want to see a pumpkin on a low-quality print and most of the novelty prints I remember back then were sold in fabric shops and were low enough quality that you could see right thru the fabric.
In the quilt below, which I’ve shown several times on this blog It is entirely created with novelty prints. Only the black square is repeated. Every single novelty print in this quilt was an individual piece I purchased.
I like to buy “scenes”, if I buy something that is a specific object, I do not buy a lot of it, maybe a 1/4 yard, but if it’s a scene, I’ll buy a yard of it just so I have the entire scene. I love buying nature prints also, rocks, bricks, clouds, sky, water… etc… The quilt above was made in 1995-96, it is my pride and joy quilt. Sadly, it is no longer with me. That’s another story for another time.
Today’s project tho before I started the medication which has totally taken over my body, a week now and I’m still groggy from taking it each day. I decided to create some towel holders. I’ve enjoyed the ones I purchased in stores but thought … hey, I could make these for a lot less. So I did… below is my first one.
I’m gonna say this is my tester project, I made a pretty big mistake creating this one but I have everything typed out, and when I can be at my machine again for more than a few minutes at a time I’ll make more, creating pictures and placing a tutorial on my site for them. I’d like to do more of that so you can see fun ways to use my patterns.
Of course, as always, I have a fun pattern I created for today for you to take and download if you’d like…
