Browsing through fabrics I saw Feed Company by Sweetwater for Moda. It reminded me of the quilt my great grandmother made for my mom. It was made of feed sacks and clothing scraps. Time was not kind to that quilt and it is gone now. I don't have much free time so the jelly roll race video from MSQC appealed to me. I was able to make the whole quilt over 2 days.
I was given 2 garbage bags full of fabric from my Brothers friend. The only thing I had to do was make him a full size quilt. This eagle panel was one of many in the bags. :).. I made this quilt for my uncle for Christmas in 2005 and he still loves it today. :)..
Bought this on ebay at a great price; someone had started it then lost interest. I loved the convenience of pre-cut pieces but the downside is missing pieces. See if you can find where I improvised!! Loved this quilt; the quilting was some of my best. I gave it to my brother last Christmas.
I saw a French General Garden quilt in a magazine well after the fabrics were discontinued, and realized I could do it with a layer cake and some yardage. I found the layer cake on ebay, and some yardage in a closeout bin. It's a bit different from the original, but I love it. Still need to QUILT it, of course... Thanks, Jenny, for helping us think outside the box. In fact, I think in pre-cuts now!
