To clarify - fabric comes in metres (or sometimes yards). A fat quarter (FQ) is 18"x22" or an eighth of a yard. Jelly Rolls are a number of strips usually 2.5" wide by 44" long - which is the full width of the fabric. Charm Packs are squares of fabric, usually 5" square. Mini Charm Packs are 2.5" square. Layer Cakes are 10" square pieces of fabric. Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs and Layer Cakes are usually representative of a whole collection of fabric by a single designer. This is my first Layer Cake!
Sew We Quilt bloghop (in my sidebar) and ordered my own Layer Cake. I also added an extra couple of half yards for binding what I am sure will be a full size quilt. Of course, since I was ordering from an american supplier (I emailed EVERY UK fabric shop I could find and none were planning to stock it) I added a few more fabrics to my basket.
I've actually done a lot of knitting this week but have failed to take proper pics of the two baby cardigans I have made for my sister so I'll save them for another day. I have done a little sewing though.
"Building Houses From Scaps" sew-a-long during 2012 has now concluded and you should go over there to see some of the finished ones. So amazing! I made this one using foundation paper but I think future ones will be pieced. I can't decide though whether to go for true scraps or a colour palette. While pondering that I put together a sheet of images to print on a sheet of magnetic stuff I found in a pound shop. 2 sheets for a pound in fact which seemed rather good.
