For someone who has sewn all her life – I never knew what a fat quarter was until this year. In fact, I had to GOOGLE it. Apparently, if I was a quilter I would know – so I guess that explains it. My sister quilts, by hand, stitch by stitch… crazy.
I was getting ready to take a sewing class to make a tote bag and I got the instructions wrong. I thought I needed fat quarters – I did not. SO, what was I going to do with these beautiful fat quarters I had.
I found a pattern (when I was still willing to buy a paper pattern in the stores) at Joanns and it had just the thing I was looking for – something cute and fun.
I made this
It allowed me to play with some new fancy stitches on Elizabeth. Which are upside down I think!
Then, once I made it I did not know what to do with it! It ended up in the girls room as a waste paper basket.
