It's not a secret anymore.... Quilters all over are crushing hard for Anna Marie Horner's new line "Innocent Crush" Her eclectic Bohemian style never disappoints. This line was due out in November, but to my surprise Hawthorne Threads had it arrive early, and lots of it. See why they are my favorite. After receiving my package I am seriously in love and am pondering covering my sewing room walls with this gorgeous fabric.
For those of you who have been waiting to see if the board idea worked for smaller cuts, here is the info I figured out. I cut the boards along the 10.5 longer side of the board. Making two pieces measuring 5.25 x 6.75.
For Fat Quarters:: I folded the short side 18" in half, then in half again. Then I wrapped the FQ around the board and pinned. This left a view of the board on the top an bottom of the fabric.
For Half yards :: I folded the seam to the middle then met the selvage to the middle make it folded in thirds. Then I wrapped it the same way as the yard cuts with a little hanging over the top of the board. This makes it easy to know what cuts are half yards, and what are FQ's.
Sorry about the messiness, I did try to hurry and plan on re-folding these a little better, but I think you can see the idea.
Have you tried this yet?
