But if you’ve already linked up your list of things you’d like to make before December 25th, I’ll show you my latest Rainbow Hare Rolls.
I don’t usually do fabric posts but when I saw the Collage line by Carrie Bloomston for Windham fabrics I decided to buy a couple of yards because I thought the Newsprint fabric would be perfect to use as borders on my Texting in Bed Bee Quilt – which is going to need very big borders if I don’t soon make some more blocks!

Then I saw the other prints in the line and I was very tempted. But I, mostly, resisted and just bought 3/4 yard of the bird prints in taupe and off white and 1/2 yard of the one that has strips of newsprint on a teal background. And then I nearly didn’t sew anything with them. I kept thinking I couldn’t think of anything to make with them but really I just didn’t want to cut them up because I sometimes get beset a random idea that fabric is to be treated like gold dust and I’m in grave danger of ruining it! So I told myself that’s a ridiculous idea and I plunged in and made some Rainbow Hare Rolls. In case you haven’t seen this fabric in real life these rolls use 1/2 width of the bird prints and the other 1/2 width has no birds on it – just spots.
But for now I’m putting these in my fledgling etsy shop and getting back to my holiday themed makes :)
Do you ever put off cutting into fabrics or do you just jump in?
