project box from Making A Lather

I opened another project box thinking it would be an easy decision. This quilt kit was a Joann fabrics block of the month called peaceful paisley from 2013. It was not an easy decision. All the Joann kits come with precut pieces and instructions. I like that, sometimes, as an easy piecing project when other projects become stressful. I found a complete set, and the setting kit, and the precut binding in the box. But, I also found several other block kits.

to do: cut purple from Making A Lather

We have had great weather and have enjoyed outdoors, and, even found a monarch on our flower tubs. We have planted milkweed in our yard, but, it hasn't bloomed. What a surprise to see our own monarch butterfly.

stash report June 14, 2020 from Making A Lather

Ordering fabric on the internet is toooo easy. I think these came from green fairy to live at my house. My favorite precut is actually the honey bun. I can cut my own jelly rolls, but I am not fond of cutting 1 1/2 inch strips, so if they do it for me, I am a happy girl. And I really like the mini charms - they are sew cute.

I have a weakness for the moda scrap bags, but, I haven't bought them in a long time. They were half price at green fairy quilts. I have not shopped there until, I bought these goodies.
