All in Good Time – #39

I gave my self permission to start a new project, even though I have one quilt still needing a fix.

I am a pre-cut girl.  I love my Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes.  Currently, I have 2 Jelly Rolls and 7 Layer Cakes.  I decided a pattern from the Moda Bake Shop, All In Good Time.

I had to run to my local quilt shop to buy some thread for another project.  It is a very small shop and the girl was helping a woman with fabric for a QOV quilt.  So I just waited until they were done to pay for my thread.  Of course, to pass the time, I looked at the fabrics.  For a small shop they really have a nice variety of pre-cuts.  I guess I was meant to buy another layer cake.  I should learn it is dangerous to look at cakes, fabric or sweet.  They both stick with you.

Picked up a layer cake of Kate Spain Aria.  It is so springy looking.

Time for cutting the layer cake and putting it back together.


I have my hourglass blocks together now it is time to lay them out.

    Hi Jan,
    This looks like a fun project. I think waiting to pay is a dangerous thing in any fabric shop but I love your selection. I have a project that needs fixing, too. I’ve been putting it off for about four weeks now – give or take – so it is past time to look at it and figure out what the heck is wrong. ~smile~ Roseanne

      Roseanne, I had used steam-a-seam which held things together pretty good. This afternoon I hand sewed the seam, which I am not very good at, now it is on to a wash to see how it holds up.

    Waiting can be dangerous on the pocketbook! Looks like a pretty project is in store!

    It is hard to pass up beautiful fabric, but so fun to find a pattern and start making the quilt. Your hourglass blocks look very nice.
    Thanks for linking with Design Wall Monday.

    Oh, that fabric looks very lovely! Can’t wait to see the blocks all playing together! Those pre-cuts are hard to resist, aren’t they?

    The hourglass blocks look great. It’s always so satisfying to have a stack of pieced blocks on a new project. 🙂

    I love your line about cakes being dangerous, baked or fabric! So true! I love Kate Spain’s fabrics; this is going to be beautiful.
