Hello, hello!


Today is the last school day before spring break begins… two weeks of fun, goofiness, day trips and snacks, always with the snacks!!  I thought I had better begin something new to celebrate the early onset of spring and sunshine that has bathed our lovely neck of the woods.


Did you spot that cute little bee 🙂

Last summer during our trip to the Oregon Coast, I went to this adorable fabric store called Jane’s Fabric Patch. Actually, it’s a cute little cottage jam packed with goodies and I walked out with an arm load of happiness!  Among my purchases was this jelly roll of Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

Like most crafty types, I am guilty of adding to my stash at a quicker pace than actually using it. Ahem, overflowing yarn bins! Something ain’t right with that picture! No point in hanging on to stuff if I’m never going to make something with it.

If you love it, use it!

So, this is what happened today…

That neatly packaged roll of fabric is undone and now the only way forward is to cut it up so that I can sew it back together again!!

I looked for a jelly roll project that was easy but at the same time, interesting enough to make me want to keep going.

I found a great pattern called Shortcake by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew.

I’m thinking I’ll make the throw size quilt but I’ve got a bunch of Miss Kate scraps in my Moda Scrap Bag, so I might go larger. We’ll see.

Couldn't Resist

I also noticed that there’s a no pressure quilt along #shortcakealong on Instagram… extra bonus!

I’m all set to begin cutting and then I’ve got to do some serious chain piecing.  Serious, but oh so fun 😀

What about you, do you have plans for some of your forgotten stash?  I’d love to hear!
